    The YMCA of the North Shore works side by side with our
    neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income

    our communities through youth development, healthy living and
    social responsibility.

    a cause.

    values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our YMCA
    provides all children, adults, and families, regardless of income,
    with opportunities to develop a healthy spirit, mind and body.

Family yoga classes are a great way for the whole family to
experience the wonderful joys of yoga. Variations are given for each
pose or activity to accommodate all levels. Yoga is a great way to
improve self-esteem, concentration and family relationships. It can
help improve motor skills, calm and strengthen the nervous system,
contribute to increased patterns of balance, promote overall health,
and of course there is the benefit of doing it as a family. This class is
75 minutes and is taught by Certified Yoga Instructor Abi Axelrod.

In this 45 minute class children will improve gross motor skills
through activities such as running, jumping, skipping and tumbling.
Additionally, children will begin to develop balance and coordination
skills. Most important will be the development of listening skills so
children will become independent of their parent and follow teacher’s
instructions. This class is designed as a transition into the Tiny
Tumblers class which runs without parent involvement.
