Tween & Teen Yoga

What Is The Difference, Kids Yoga? Tween Yoga? Teen Yoga?

·        Teen yoga classes expand on all the above and are the last step before moving on to adults yoga classes.

A tween/teen yoga practice can improve flexibility and strength, as well as...

    Grab a stroller and try this popular yoga off-shoot! We've spoken with Ashley Goldberg, owner of kids yoga company, BornYoga for the low down on everything Stroga!

    KYD: What is Stroga? (Stroller Yoga)
    AG: There are different definitions of Stroga, depending on who you ask and who is teaching. For example, some people would describe a stroga class as a combination of Stroller Walking (outside), followed by a 20-30 minute, gentle yoga class (inside or outside). When practicing Stroga at Born Yoga, the stroller becomes a toll to assist in various standing asanas and balancing postures. Rather than using the wall, we ...

    What's trending now - yoga camp!

    c/o SHINE Yoga Kids
     What’s trending now – yoga camp!

    “We’ve noticed more kids asking to do yoga,” says Lauren Chaitoff, founder and co-owner of Yogi Beans, a NY-based yoga-for-kids company which has offered yoga in camps for a decade.

    For Pure Yoga, of New York City, “Our mini-retreats are for children ages 3-6,” says Chaitoff. “Various camps will also bring us on-site and the ages there typically range from 2.5 – 10 years.”

    Camps operate for one and two weeks at a time, with sessions running for 2.5 hours each.

    Typically, campers can expect an exciting yoga adventure in class, followed by a soothing savasana, fun arts and crafts activity, mindful games and calming yoga story, says Chaitoff.

    “Kids are asked to pack a light (nut-free) lunch that will be eaten during story time,” says the yoga expert.

    Newbies to yoga are welcome, says Chaitoff.

    “Every kid is an ideal yoga camper. No experience needed. Just bring your body, mind and heart,” she says.

    c/o SHINE Yoga Kids
    At SHINE Yoga Kids in New City, NY, yoga summer camp programming for ages 4-12 is in its third year.

    “It’s a nice option for kids who are not attending camp and for those who are looking for a healthy, indoor activity for a few hours during the day,” says Amy Hough, owner of SHINE.

    Camps here rune for one week each and kids follow a theme-based class, which is approximately an hour.

    “We provide organic snacks and water, followed by an activity designed around the theme – either a partner pose, craft, games or team-building activity,” says Hough.

    Kids who are looking to keep cool, make new friends and enjoy more of a low-key, non-competitive environment would be happy at yoga camp, says Hough.

    “Parents love knowing that their child is gaining all of the incredible benefits of yoga, while having fun in camp,” she says.

    Spring athleisure style - what's hot now

    c/o Onzie
    Spring has sprung and so too has design inspiration for this the season's youth athleisure wear!

    For Kimberly Swarth, president of Onzie, it's the feminine spirit, which encourages spiritualism, freedom and play that inspired the brand's Spring line.

    c/o Onzie
    "There's a lot of powerful color and art in this collection, particularly the Tiger Lily, Mantra and Las Lunas prints," she says. "We want youth to be inspired by their mothers and other female mentors in their lives. We hope these mirrored products help to elevate that connection."

    The outdoors also inspired the new looks.

    c/o Onzie
    "We want youth to connect with their bodies as well as the outside world, through the powerful designs they wear. All of our spandex pieces are what we call Free Flow Spandex, and are designed to stretch as they move and play," says Swarth.

    Onzie picked up on style trends toward strappy bralettes, paired with drop back tanks this season and their new basic hoodie, made with a super soft triblend fabric, "Is sure to be their favorite piece that they will want to wear every day," says Swarth.
