Sprout Yoga

Alice Cinnante, owner, loves teaching preschool yoga. Preschool is a wonderful age to begin learning healthy habits to last a lifetime. You will hear children’s laughter and conversation in class while learning the three B’s of yoga: Brain (mindfulness), Body (poses for strength/flexibility/balance), and Breath (techniques to relax/ energize). Additionally, you’ll see peaceful children resting on their mats, full of self-esteem and control, at the end of class. Music, storytelling, acting, creative movement, partner poses, games, and more, are all part of the joyful experience.
