Come this September Kitsilano will be home to Vancouver’s very first kid’s yoga studio. To those living in the neighbourhood the new studio will not be a huge surprise. The
Kitsilano neighbourhood is probably one of the most yoga friendly neighbourhoods around and as such a kid’s yoga studio is simply the natural next step.
Kitsilano’s kid’s yoga studio will be called Yoga Buttons. It will start offering classes to kids in September.
The new studio is located in the former Vita Salon at 2525 West Broadway.
Yoga has become an increasingly popular pass time for adults of all ages and it is a natural progression to see classes geared to younger people. With mom and babe yoga and other family friendly yoga classes already on offer, a yoga studio geared solely to kids seems almost late to the game.
The benefits of yoga include increased flexibility, relaxation, health, strength and fitness. These benefits extend to those young and old.
Yoga is also a good way to help with body image, self esteem, awareness and compassion–all qualities sorely needed now more than ever. It is definitely a good practice for kids to learn and can help kids learn how to unwind and relax without sitting in front of a screen.
Making exercise a regular part of one’s daily activity is a good skill for kids to learn, especially considering today’s current obesity epidemic. Kid’s yoga classes also offer a terrific opportunity for kids to exercise together and to do so in a non-competitive environment.
Yoga fosters a spirit of friendliness and non-competition which can be very useful. The Yogabuttons studio is just one more reason that the Kitsilano neighbourhood is such a desirable area to live in. Kitsilano real estate is one of the highest rated investments on the market.
