Moves stimulate the brain, encourage proper alignment, help with digestion and sleep patterns, teach calming breath work, encourage early critical thinking skills and foster the love of physical fitness at a young age. All children should attend with an adult caregiver and dress ready to stretch and move. All children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. Only kids need to register.
