We are so excited to be able to once again hold classes in person! In our efforts to keep everyone safe, we have a few new procedures in place. For the summer months we will be taking advantage of beautiful Northern Michigan and holding all classes outdoors. We ask that you bring your own yoga mats, beach towels, or blankets as we will not be providing mats or sharing props during this time. Because we will be asking everyone to setup their own space 6 feet apart, we are inviting one adult to participate in class with our youngest age group, the Busy Bees. Hand sanitizers and wipes will be available for all classes. The toughest challenge will be not hugging everyone we see – we’ve missed all of you so much!
Yoga in the Park
Classes will be held outdoors amid the beautiful trees of the great lawn in front of Mission Table.
13512 Peninsula Drive Traverse City
Please bring your own yoga mat, beach towel, or blanket - we will not be providing any mats or props to share. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available. There will be plenty of space for us to spread out and enjoy the view of west bay.
See you there!

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.
“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 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.
