The Yoga Buggy may not have its own studio but it’s everywhere – in community centres and parks spreading its mission of bringing yoga to all children. This not-for-profit org offers classes and camps taught in a fun, child-friendly way to help build attention, self-regulation, body positivity, confidence, strength, flexibility and more.
The the first 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.
