Kid Partners Yoga uses breathing activities, yoga poses, music, movement games, and relaxation to help children learn ways to find focus and calmness, and to promote positive feelings about themselves and their world. Our classes provide a non-competitive, nurturing environment in which kids can be more confident and comfortable with their bodies and how they move. In addition to Kid Partners Yoga classes and events, we can share the fun at birthday parties or help Girl Scouts earn a badge!

"The CCLS 4th Grade Junior Troop just did the Stress Less badge with Melissa Huse and they LOVED it! She had their attention the entire time, and several want to do it again. My daughter said it was the best meeting they've ever had and is now begging me for a yoga mat!"
-Cristin W., troop leader
