Beginning Aug. 11, Very Good Gym LIC will be offering a yoga program for kids.
The classes will fuse yoga with creative expression and a deep connection to nature. There will also be an exploration of animal yoga poses, earth elements, and breathwork techniques.
Kids will also be able to express their creativity through theater games, music, drawing, poetry and storytelling. The classes encourage self-empowerment and collaboration and support different learning styles.
The classes will be taught by Elizabeth Stewart, who has 20 years of experience and is a Yoga Alliance Registered Certified Yoga Instructor, a Peaceful Babes Kids Yoga Certified Instructor and an ACE Certified Personal Trainer.
Stewart is well versed in yoga and meditation disciplines from around the world, including places like Tibet.
All classes will be drop-in, and limited to 12 children. It will cost $25 per child.

- Sessions for kids ages 1-4 will be offered with a caretaker on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m.
