There’s a new kind of yoga class popping up at studios and community centres: the family yoga class. It’s not just about Baby and Me classes now – the whole family can do their downward dog together.
The only fully kid-centric yoga studio in the city, it makes sense they would have a family class too. Their Saturday morning Family class is open to all ages, and you can do drop-in. And, Thomas Haas is just down the road.
