Evening Y&ST Classes and New Age Guidelines

I've had SO MANY people ask me if I would ever do an evening Yoga & Story Time class in Galesburg for working families.  I totally understand this request and never meant to exclude working families when we started Y&ST at The Path.  In fact, it was BECAUSE I'm a working parent myself that I couldn't readily accommodate this request.  My schedule with writing, consulting projects, teaching, mom-ing and wife-ing only gave me a slim window to teach in Galesburg (which just happened to be monthly on Monday mornings).  But I have some work projects that are winding down and feel that I can now commit to holding monthly evening sessions as well!  The evening classes will be on the same day and same location (the beautiful Path Center for Healing) at 5:30pm.

I've also had multiple people ask about age recommendations for Y&ST classes.  I initially developed these classes for preschool-aged children because, well, I'm the mom of a preschooler.  But I've done yoga with Stella since she was a wee babe and I'm certified to teach yoga to prenatal moms, children, and teens.  I've also had classes with children of many different ages in Pekin.  I think I once had a 10-month-old and a 10-year-old in the same class.  And guess what?  They both enjoyed it!  Because I think children of all stages of development could benefit from Y&ST, we are opening the classes to children of all ages.  I will offer age-appropriate modifications depending on your child's age and abilities.  While the classes probably wouldn't be great for infants or pre-crawlers (due to the amount of activity), toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children should find Y&ST to be a blast!

Our first evening Y&ST class will be March 27 at 5:30pm.  Of course you can also register for the same day at 10amClick here for more info on those classes.  I hope to see you and your child soon for some yoga fun!
