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.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in person again in a few weeks!

Baby Bees:

Ages 6 weeks – crawling

Baby Yoga Traverse City

Yoga and Movement for Baby’s Development

This fun class is all about baby! Learn yoga and exercises specific to baby’s development as you help them strengthen muscles needed as they move into their next stage of development and begin sitting, scooting, crawling and walking.

Even tummy time will be fun as we sing, dance and play with the added benefit of aiding in digestion and promoting better sleep.

Baby is welcome to bring mom, dad, a grandparent or a caregiver to join them for class. 

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.

Honey Bees: Ages 6-8

With this boisterous age group, we combine music, cooperative games, breath-work, mindfulness exercises, relaxation and yoga into a fun 60 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.

Social Bees: Ages 9-12

Yoga for teens Traverse City

With this tween age group, we move more into a yoga flow and focus on asanas. We combine music, cooperative games, breath-work, mindfulness exercises, relaxation and yoga into this fun 60 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 Teens

Many of today’s youth feel constant stress, anxiety, and pressure to perform. Yoga + mindfulness classes give teens and pre-teens some much needed “down time”.

We encourage respect for others along with a love for one’s self, inside and out as we explore concepts such as trust, loving kindness, peace and gratitude.

Most importantly, these 60 minute classes are creative and fun providing a safe and encouraging environment for teens and tweens to relax and “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!
