Toddlers become more confident in their moving bodies as they practice yoga both in and out of class. During a Tot Yoga class, crawlers and walkers playfully practice yoga postures while they are standing, sitting up, walking, and jumping. Parents also get to do a little yoga, but no yoga experience is required.
