Deep breath in…breathe out slowly…Relax.

Yoga can be a powerful thing for any age group to add to their healthy daily routine, but to help you sift through the best kids’ yoga classes in Melbourne, let your kids stretch into these classes to find the best fit.

Some basic tips about kids and yoga? Start gently. Young bodies are flexible but they still need to be treated with care to minimise any risks of muscle tearing and stress.
