At mini yogis yoga for kids we foster creativity, cooperation, and confidence in a safe environment where all children are perfect just the way they are.

Children aren’t little adults. They have different needs, respond to different stimuli, and learn in different ways. That’s why mini yogis offers nontraditional yoga classes: invigorating, interactive, imaginative journeys into your child’s developing mind, body, and spirit. Shana conducts mini yogis teacher trainings around the globe, certifying all of her teachers to think boldly, and profoundly change the lives of children.

Unlike many other yoga programs that simply scale adult practices down into child-size chunks, mini yogis builds each practice from the ground up, creating an exclusively child-based yoga practice and giving children the sometimes rare opportunity to just be kids within the context of asana and meditation.

Let mini yogis yoga for kids help your child develop flexibility, focus, and coordination for a happy, healthy, balanced life.

"I was shocked yesterday that both of my boys (one who is ADHD and can't sit still for a second!) sat perfectly still during opening meditation and Savasana. It was quite amazing. I also really loved that [Shana] had the kids tell the class WHO made them special and WHAT makes them special."
