HYS Kids

For our busy Harlem Yoga Families: All Harlem Yoga Studio Kids classes are offered at the same time as Adult Yoga Classes.

*We offer KIDS and Teen Packages in 5 or 10 class cards as concepts build on one another and regular attendance allows kids to grow physically, mentally and emotionally.

Kids After School Yoga!

While we welcome kids of all ages into any of our Kids Yoga Classes, our classes are geared towards the following ages:

Mondays 4:30PM – 5:30PM, ages 9-12

Fridays 4:00PM – 5:00PM , ages 5-9

In this fun and creative after school class, kids can start and end their school-week well! Relaxing, re-energizing and playing while they explore the physical and mental practices of yoga. (Parents get to relax and re-energize too in the adult class right next door!)Children learn about yoga through age appropriate postures, games, and songs. They will begin to focus on alignment to build balance, strength, coordination and proprioception as they practice from week to week, with partner and group asanas adding fun and creativity, and building community. Through discussion and art projects, as well as playing and creating together, we work towards understanding and strengthening emotional intelligence, helping students gain techniques for self-expression and self-control.

The concept of meditation is introduced as a means to find stillness and calm both the body and mind, and as a tool for exploring compassion for ourselves and others.

Teen Yoga! Mondays 5:45 PM – 6:45PM 

Teen Yoga is a challenging and fun class that not only demonstrates the foundation of a strong and safe physical practice, but is a safe space to explore body and mind and a deepening understanding of the self. Through breathwork, movement, meditation and discussion rooted in yogic philosophy, we will explore how our unique footprints fit into the larger blueprint of our local and global communities. Especially in a place like New York City, teens are often forced to have a tough exterior, shaped by the heavy expectations and responsibilities of peers and adults alike. In this hour-long, 10-week course, in addition to safely learning challenging poses and relaxing into restorative ones, we will explore different ways to manage stress, cultivate balance and moderation and be more confident in our value towards self and towards others.
