Yoga (yg) literally means to unite or to yoke.  It is thought that we unite our minds, bodies, & spirit through control of our breath.  The practice of yoga can include physical postures, breathing exercises, healthy living ideals (ie. honesty, good nutrition, nonviolence, and academic importance), concentration, & meditation.   It is an ancient practice that is over 4,000 years old.

  • Yoga can be done anywhere, at anytime, and by anybody. YoKid yoga classes take place at kid & teen friendly venues.  Request YoKid to come to your local school by contacting us OR join us for one of our public yoga classes. Check our current and upcoming class offerings here
