Combining the creative poses of yoga with our favorite books on movement, yoga, nature and animals, this class will have kids moving, Om-ing, and jumping while being entranced by the written word. Heart warming stories on life, love, family and sharing are interspersed with ringing the bells, blowing the pinwheels, playing movement games and learning the art of savasana, rest time for big and small! (Adult participation highly encouraged)
Wise Heart Story Yoga - Crawlers & Toddlers
Crawlers - 2 yrs
Based on our popular Wise Heart Story yoga class, this class is geared towards babies learning to move and toddlers on the go. Using story books on animals, kids, nature and yoga, we’ll use creative movement to encourage little ones to crawl, stand, jump, shake and maybe even Om! Building strength, coordination, body awareness and socialization through books and games, we’ll ease into savasana, teaching people big and small, that learning how to relax is the greatest gift of all! Perfect class for infants to 2 years. (Adult participation requested)

Art with Ms. Nanette is an exciting, hands-on class for all levels. From painting tracks with toy cars to making puppets from paper bags, this class explores as many mediums as possible! With a creative approach, this class will help develop fine motor skills, encourage self-expression, and expand creative development.

Miss Jeanine’s City Stomp music class celebrates the diversity of our city and seeks to expose NYC kids to music of other cultures that live around them.
