OhmSantih Yoga School Creative & Customized ClassesOhmSantih Yoga School offers classes for children ages 3-13, divided into three groups (3-6, 6, 9, and 13). While each class is themed, suggestions and ideas from the children’s imagination are integrated into the lesson. This is the reason why OhmSantih claims, “No two classes would be the same.” Imagine jungle adventures, however, with mindful exercises and yoga poses, as well as breathing exercises added to the mix.
They limit the number to six students per hour class (an appointment is required) to ensure that your child is given the attention they deserve and the style is engaging. You may also reserve private, one-on-one lessons in the studio or from your home.
