Between the heat wave and back-to-school blues, your tot’s late-afternoon twist-and-shout routine has gone from tolerable to terrible.
Turn that downward spiral into a downward dog with Kidsrevolving yoga. The classes help little wigglers get the sillies out with breathing exercises and creative body movement. Young yogis use their imaginations to travel through deep space, tropical islands, and rain forest treetops, all while developing sensory, motor, and social skills through poses.
So when class comes to a close, they’re physically wiped out yet emotionally centered.
Available at The Wellness Living Store, 1412 14th Street, between Santa Monica Boulevard and Broadway Street (310-497-4277 or wellnesslivingstore.com), single class, $20; parent and child class, $22.
