Yoga classes dedicated to the whole family or its youngest members
I was chatting to a lovely lady at my local cafe the other day who had a five year old. We were swapping war stories about some of the tantrums our children had been experiencing lately. She mentioned to me that she has started doing family yoga and it has been wonderful. I had never even heard of this!
After doing some research and speaking to other Mums, turns out that family or kids yoga is an increasingly popular activity. Families can come together to practice yoga, connect and recharge. And have some fun as a family. Or kids can learn yoga in a safe and fun environment aimed at improving self esteem and self awareness.
So with that in mind, we have found some places in Brisbane that offers it.
