Parent & Child Suspension Yoga
$25 Per Class (Parent + Child)
Similar to our child suspension yoga class, parents and children will engage in suspension yoga poses with the support of a beautifully stretchy suspension hammock; all while building core strength and having fun. Participants will relax, breathe, gain flexibility and self-confidence together while learning mindfulness, communication skills and interactive partner poses. This unique class creates some well-deserved bonding time for Parent and Child. There are so many benefits to suspension yoga including spinal decompression, better circulation and increased flexibility. No yoga or suspension experience needed….just bring your mats!
