Classes

At Just Bee Yoga + Well-being we introduce youth of all ages to the benefits and joys of yoga, breath-work and mindfulness.

There are wonderful physical benefits of yoga including improved strength, balance, coordination, body awareness and flexibility.

We also strongly believe in the emotional benefits of yoga, mindfulness & breath-work.

These are lifelong tools that can be used on – and off – the mat for overall health and well-being.

Learn more about our different types of classes below.

Busy Bees: Ages 3-5

Our Busy Bees classes are lively and active – just like this busy age group.

We provide a space for imaginations to soar as we go on yoga adventures incorporating animals, nature, and other age appropriate themes into yoga poses. Creativity and mindfulness is encouraged as we stretch, play, breathe, sing and dance. Most of all – we have a lot of fun!

These busy bees are happy to spend time lying down in quiet rest for the last few minutes of this 30 minute class.

With this boisterous age group, we combine music, cooperative games, breath-work, mindfulness exercises, relaxation and yoga into a fun 45 minute class. 

We encourage these young yogis to focus on inward mindfulness, opposed to perfect poses. However, healthier bodies will be the result of poses that stretch, strengthen, and build coordination.

This combination of yoga and mindfulness gives children lifelong skills for self-health, relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being.

Yogi Tweens: Ages 9-12

Yoga can provide pre-teens with essential life tools such as self-esteem and confidence, inner and outer strength, attention and concentration. As a result they will have heightened awareness of both oneself and others. Different concepts such as trust, loving kindness, peace, and gratitude are incorporated into creative classes for this independent age group. We encourage respect for others along with a love for one’s self, inside and out.

Yoga and mindfulness classes give teens some much needed “down time”. Many of today’s teens feel constant stress, anxiety, and pressure to perform. Our 60-90 minute teen classes incorporate yoga and mindfulness in a relaxed environment. We focus on ways to calm and relax the mind and body with no pressure.

It’s a perfect time for teens to “just bee”.

Family Yoga

Yoga practiced as a family encourages cooperation, communication and respect between children, parents and siblings.

These lively classes incorporate basic yoga poses, breath-work and relaxation through creative and fun yoga-themed adventures. We create a safe space for connection and play.

The class curriculum is designed for ages 4-11, but we welcome all ages from 0-113!
