ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

A Life of Balance

Combining a love for crazy kid giggles with the grounded zen of yoga, and Young Yokes was born. Then the next step
was easy... bring kids yoga to the community we love and thrive in.

Young Yokes was created to support the growing need of combining yoga with children. As parents who found their mats later in life, Suzanne & Jessica know how important it is to expose their children and the children around them to the empowering practice of yoga. Can you imagine how yoga could have supported you while growing up?
Young Yokes can!

The benefits of yoga for youth range from increased focus, decreased anxiety, a greater sense of self, and the list goes on and on. As parents, educators, counselors, adult yogi's, and people who just simply love to work with children,  we work hard to provide a foundation of success for children and those teaching children, and yoga is big key to their success.

Yoga is a gift that truly keeps giving for generations.
