Restore the body by focused breathing and relaxing in a calming environment. Our stretching will target all parts of the body, but will focus on hips, hamstrings, and back. Poses are held for a longer time as we focus on breathing to give the body time to relax and open.

Description

Most children have been practicing their own version of tumbling ever since they could crawl. So we help toddlers as young as 18 months learn motor skills and social skills in a safe, creative setting - with the help of parent participation. Older children up to 5 years can develop coordination and confidence through floor and balance beam gymnastics lessons. It's a fun, positive experience with lots of one-on-one guidance. Form fitting clothes are recommended.
