At Sprout Kids Yoga & Mindfulness we promote the development and happiness of your child through yoga and mindfulness.
Sprout offers an imaginative, uplifting, and communal experience in a positive therapeutic environment that helps our mini-yogis reach their full potential. We incorporate stories, music and games to learn poses, sequences and relaxation techniques.
Our mission is to provide a family-friendly child-based yoga practice that supports children of all needs by promoting movement and boosting self-esteem - fostering a healthy, happy, and balanced life on and off the mat.
