Majestic Yoga, a cute little yoga studio in Huron Village now offers wonderful children's yoga classes on Friday afternoons. It is a great way to end the week and start the weekend grounded, relaxed and open to whatever comes their way. My daughter loves Tara who keeps the class moving along with stories, soothing rites, and child appropriate yoga poses. Classes are available on a drop in basis. Hi Rise is a great pre-yoga stop or post yoga treat. (Fridays 2:45 for ages 2.9 - 4 and 3:30 for ages 5 - 11 )
