Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Tots is a supportive, fun-loving, and active yoga class. As tot’s mobility increases, classes offer tot-centric poses that encourage and support their physical explorations. Tots become more confident in their moving bodies as they practice yoga both in and out of class.
During a Tots Itsy Bitsy Yoga class crawlers and walkers playfully practice yoga postures while they are standing, sitting up, walking, and jumping. Parents also get to do a little yoga, but no yoga experience is required.
Tots Itsy Bitsy Yoga was created by Helen Garabedian, an Infant Developmental Movement Educator, yoga teacher, and mother. Each class is taught by Sheryl Haynes, a trained and certified facilitator.

"My daughter (almost 2) and I have enjoyed these classes so much. There is just the right amount of structure of young toddlers, and it is a great activity that promotes healthy habits and a fun bonding time between tots and their parents. The incorporation of music and movement is fantastic, and the flow of each class and its peaceful atmosphere has such a nice calming effect on otherwise very busy kiddos. My little girl often does some of the poses and sings the songs at home, and I've even caught her helping her baby doll do yoga!! This was our first "structured" activity in which to partake, and I can't imagine having a better experience with it all".
