“They are unique, special ways to celebrate your bean,” says Klein, whose studio averages three to four kids yoga parties every month. Parents can opt for 90 minute or two-hour specialty parties. Each features 45 minutes of yoga and a “pizza picnic,” while the longer affair includes extra activities. The outfit will also cater “On-the-Go” birthday events at private homes, restaurants or gyms.
To host a crowd-pleasing little yogi party, follow Klein’s tips:
Make it age appropriate. “Facepainting is super popular for the 2-5 year old crowd, while the 6-12 year olds love our signature yoga class with a fun spa experience. Parents love the idea of making the kids feel pampered in a kid-friendly environment.”
Hire professionals. “Our parties are staffed by a professional hostess and two or more Yogi Beans’ caring, expert kids’ yoga instructors. We want parents to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the yoga vibes!”
Build off of a theme. “The birthday child chooses a favorite theme, for example, jungle safari or flower power, a character like Dora or Spiderman, or favorite music, such as the Frozen soundtrack or One Direction. We provide options for yoga-themed goodie bags and all of our paper goods are tie-dyed and peace sign themed. Parents have given out yoga favors such as kids’ yoga mats and yoga-related jewelry."
Let your yogi guest of honor shine. “Make sure the birthday child feels like the center of attention. Our birthday beans always sit next to our instructor at the front of the room, and help to lead all of the games, activities and poses.”
