For parents of young children, the idea of a child possessing a “calm and balanced mind” may seem like a pipe dream — a very, very appealing pipe dream. But at My Kids Yoga, young children learn to develop just that, along with a strong, fit body.
The unfortunate truth is, even little kids can suffer from the stress and anxiety that result from our over-scheduled, high-pressure lives. It’s a good thing, then, that yoga offers children the same positive benefits that it offers to adults. Practicing yoga can reduce kids’ stress and help them learn to relax, focus, respect others, and develop a positive self-image.
Best of all, when young children are introduced to yoga in a fun, positive and creative way, it helps them to develop their imaginations. They may not even realize they’re engaging in a practice that could lay the foundation for a lifetime of good physical, mental and spiritual health!
Now, My Kids Yoga would like to give one lucky Free Fun in Austin a special prize! The winner of our giveaway can choose from one of these two options:
- A four-class pass to the upcoming Monthly Playshop, an hour-long workshop designed to give three- and four-year-olds a playful introduction to yoga through games and imaginative play (a $40 value). In this workshop, children transform into different animals, moving, breathing and communicating with each other. They will learn to observe themselves and their surroundings, and will also observe the feeling of taking deep inhales and exhales. Playshops will be held the first Saturday of each month from September through December, from 1–2 PM, at Toybrary Austin (7817 Rockwood Ln. #101, Austin 78757).
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Free Fun in Austin calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
- A custom-designed children’s yoga workshop and two free passes (a $60 value).

Classes at My Kids Yoga are led by instructor Shana Logue, who has been practicing yoga for eleven years and teaching for six. In addition to the Monthly Playshop, My Kids Yoga offers other workshops for children, including Join the Circus, a workshop for four- and five-year-olds designed to introduce yoga through games and imaginative play; and Find Your Calm Voice, in which children explore the idea of a calm voice that rests within.
