New Class! Kids Yoga Ages 2-4


Want to share the joy of yoga with your kids?

After hosting a few yoga classes at the studio, we’re excited to announce a weekly class for kids ages 2-4 with Alexandra Rossi!

This kids yoga class is designed to encourage self-esteem and body-awareness through noncompetitive physical activity. Yoga fosters cooperation and compassion in children while enhancing flexibility, strength and coordination.

Through practice, exercise and play, this yoga class will help kids improve concentration and develop a sense of calmness. Because kids learn by observing, parent attendance is necessary. While parents need not be added to the roster, please register your child in advance for class.

To Register your Child:

  • Make a profile for your child by clicking the “My Info” tab and “Add Family Member” in your Mindbody Online account.
  • On the classes tab, select “Sign Up Now” for the class you would like to attend, then select “Make a Single Reservation – Child’s Name.”

Please arrive 10 minutes early and ready for class.

Sign up for the first class!


Alexadra Rossi

ERYT500 and Paris native, shares the practice of yoga with everyone in an honest and playful way. Her personal practice has taken her from therapeutic based Anusara Yoga to a more restorative practice, influenced by Judith Lasater, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra. After many years of teaching, she realized that her true calling is to empower women at every stage of their lives. She is greatly influenced by Jane Austin and by Gurmukh’s teachings on prenatal yoga. She is now convinced that women need a mix of strengthening and restorative practices to accommodate the changing nature of their bodies.
