Parent & Toddler Yoga
Parent & Toddler Yoga
Four-class session: Thursdays, April 3, 10, 17 and 24
Morning Yoga Classes at the Ape House!
Looking for a special activity to do with your toddler this spring? Join us indoors at Regenstein Center for African Apes to exercise your body and imagination and connect to nature alongside our two gorilla toddlers and their moms!
Practice fun animal yoga poses with your little one and engage in activities like nature play, reading a storybook and more. After class, visit the monkeys, lions, turtles and other animals that inspire this unique, animal-themed yoga class.
We have a limited number of child-sized yoga mats available for use on a first-come, first-served basis. Children and parents are also welcome to bring and use their own mats. Parents may choose to use a mat for comfort while sitting on the ground by their child. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bottled water.
