Yoga + Mindfulness

 

The Just Bee™ Mindful Mat

Mindfulness gives children skills to improve their ability to pay attention, to develop an awareness of their emotions, to calm themselves when they are upset, and to help make better decisions.

Your Just Bee™ Mindful Mat can be a space in your home free from distractions. A space to go for some quiet time. It’s a place to practice mindfulness, take a pause, or just take a breath. In our busy, noisy world, having a designated space to “Just Bee” is vital to our overall health and well-being.

Welcome! We are so glad you are here!

With a combination of 28 (YES 28) grandchildren, we’re so excited to share yoga and mindfulness with children. We are Kay Epple and Cathy Fitzgerald and we are both RYT® 200 RCYT 95 registered yoga teachers with a specialization in yoga for children, teens & families.

Realizing the incredible benefits for all ages, we have followed up with specialized training for children’s yoga and mindfulness at Well Bean Kids Yoga,  Rainbow Yoga & Cosmic Kids.

We are passionate about providing children and families with tools for living healthy, happy lives.

Karma Yoga

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” – The Dalai Lama

At Just Bee Yoga + Well-being, we believe that children learn kindness and compassion towards themselves and others through opportunities to give back and help those in need; it is in this spirit that we created Karma Yoga.

These are donation based classes where 100% of the proceeds go to the charity of the month. Children and families are invited to join us for a full hour of  music, yoga, dancing and fun. Recommended for families with children ages 3-11, but we welcome all ages.

Do you have an organization you’d like us to include in a future month?

We’d love there from you! Please send us a message.

Yoga + Mindfulness Classes for Children & Families

Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical health and mental well-being in children. These tools can help children to counter difficulties such as stress, anxiety, balancing moods, behavior and attention span.

Our classes balance fun with quiet relaxation, giving permission to “just bee”.

Yoga Parties

Yoga parties are a fun and exciting way to share the practice of yoga with your friends as you celebrate your birthday, family gathering or special occasion – yoga style. 

We customize your party based on the wishes of the guest of honor.
