Oakville’s New Family Workout Studio: Prana Yoga and Wellness

If you’re looking for a fun, family activity why not try learning to stretch, groove and breathe as one? At Prana Yoga and Wellness Studios, you don’t have to leave your brood at home to experience the joys of yoga.

The new studio in Oakville, Ont., has an emphasis on family with classes available from baby to teen and adult classes. For new mommy fitness and bodning,  you and your tiny one can get moving to the rhythm of Latin music in a salsa tots class.

Fun family fitness, Prana style

Yoga is a great way to introduce kids to the importance of a non-competitive atmosphere, allowing them to bring energy to their bodies and mind. Here are a few ways that Prana recommends yoga can improve your kids’ health and well-being:

  1. Strengthens and helps them become more flexible and coordinated.
  2. Enhances self-awareness and teaches self-discipline (kids need to slow down, hold certain postures or breathe a certain way)
  3. Enhances imagination by striking poses from nature (think downward dog, pigeon pose, tree pose).
  4. Something the whole family (even grandparents) can do together.
  5. Children can learn ways to relax and get control of stress in their lives.

Evening schedules are aimed towards teens, kids and individuals, while weekends are devoted to classes for families to enjoy together. Prices start at $15 a person, but come as a family and it’s $5 a head! For more class descriptions, schedules and workshops, head over to Pranayogastudios.com. After all, a family that OMs together, stays together!
