Life in Brooklyn can be stressful, even for kids. Academic pressures, peers, busy schedules, electronic overload: all can lead to health problems, depression, sleep disorders, and more. That’s why a growing number of parents are turning to the same remedy for their children that they use for their own well-being: yoga.
Not only can yoga help kids find relief and get centered, but recent studies show the discipline can even benefit kids with attention deficits and autism spectrum disorders. Below are some kids yoga classes we found in Brooklyn.
Bend & Bloom Yoga (Park Slope) is dedicated to using play and imagination to introduce Yoga to children in the hope of giving them a lifelong experience with the discipline. Kids classes happen concurrent with classes for parents and/or caregivers, so no one feels left out. There are also post-natal parent-baby classes, classes for tots and families, and many more options. Click here for a full rundown of classes.
