Yoga teaches children of all ages positive play through yoga poses, breathing activities, share circles, laughter and partner yoga, and other cooperative learning activities to develop self-esteem, character, creativity, positive social interaction, emotional balance, and bodily and kinesthetic intelligence and awareness.
Many children rarely have the opportunity to explore “within”, to take the time to check in with their bodies and minds. In addition, the statistics relating to health, fitness and obesity in children today are daunting. Yoga is a great way for all children to learn to enjoy movement, to increase body awareness and self esteem, and to empower them to take responsibility for their overall health. At a time in our history where kids are busier than ever and, subsequently, feeling more stress, yoga is an amazing tool and gift.
Classes for Kids at Flow
Baby and Me
(mom, dad, pre-crawling infants)
A chance to start moving joints and muscles, “find” your core again (it IS there, we promise!), bond with baby, breathe, and meet other new parents. This is a postnatal yoga class where you can bring your pre-crawling infant with you.

Show up outside Flow with your baby or toddler, jog stroller, water bottle, and a beach towel. We’ll load up some dumbbells, and Stephanie ACE-certified Personal Trainer and RYT-registered Yoga Instructor, of Flow Yoga will take you on an outdoor mindbody fitness adventure that balances strength, core power, and flexibility while inspiring health, balance and joy from the inside out. This class is appropriate for all fitness levels.

· $5/child/hour – with an adult doing yoga or getting spa service
· $10/child/hour – if just the child is attending yoga class
(moms and kids all ages)
Flow Founder, Stephanie, created Lila Retreats as a supportive time for mothers to interrupt the “normal” every day pattern of a busy lifestyle to play and explore with their child(ren) while being supported by a community of other mothers. Lila is a Sanskrit word for divine play. Time for mom to rejuvenate and relax with other mothers, time for mom to enjoy some meditative alone time, as well as time for moms and children to play, eat, and enjoy the outdoors together. Women-only yoga classes, multi-age kids yoga and music classes, and integrated playful yoga and music time. Families are grouped into “tribes” at the beginning of the workshop to support each other in having free time to meditate, hike, enjoy the springs, or a massage. A cooperative structure that involves all participants, but allows for unique opportunities for solace, as well.
Celebrate summer with us at the end of August for 3 days & 2 nights at Breitenbush for a playful and rejuvenating natural retreat. Each mom and child(ren) can have their own cabin, sleeping tent w/ pads, or bring your own tent. Healthy meals included. We’ll assign you lodging near a friend or pair you with another mom so “tribes” are created to support mommy for a little free time.
