Get to know the Buddha Belly team

Buddha Belly Kids Yoga is dedicated to nurturing kids’ innate desire for movement and play. We explore yoga through poses, movement, and relaxation while encouraging creativity and fun! Our classes balance both structure and spontaneity as we honor each child’s unique energy. From birth to teens, we seek to build awareness and strength in mind, body, and soul as we learn to make sense of our world.
