Family Time

Parent/Tot Swim Lessons
Parent/tot classes are designed for both parent and child. Parents accompany their children into the water and work with them to learn basic swimming skills as well as water safety. The class is song- and game-oriented to keep it lively and fun! One or two adults must accompany each child. Three levels are offered based on the age of your child:

Shrimp/Kipper - ages 6-15 months
Inia - ages 16-23 months
Perch - ages 2-3 years

"Dancin' Mamas" is a mother-baby cardio dance class designed to allow mothers of babies 4-14 months to work out with their little ones in a fun, low intensity class that both mama and baby will enjoy. Dancin' Mamas is designed so that we dance while wearing our babies! In other words, baby stays with mom whle held in a wrap or carrier like a Boba Wrap or Ergobaby Carrier that each mother brings to class. After a brief warm up, we will begin a series of "follow along" dances including salsa, merengue, Bollywood, hip hop, disco, dance hall and more. We will finish the class with some light stretching and some core conditioning especially designed for postpartum moms. For our little ones, we will incorporate nursery rhymes throughout our dances, and we'll have singing and cuddle time during stretching at the end of class. The benefits of baby wearing have already been widely documented, as research has shown that baby wearing leads to greater security and attachment for babies, as well as improved breathing regulation and motor development. We'll provide references in class.

Play Group/Creative Movement for Parents and Tots
This class is a perfect way to introduce the young child (ages one to four) to rhythm, movement and music. Together parents and children enjoy creative movement and play using props, games, rhythm instruments and songs. One or two children may be brought to class. Registration should be under the parent's name.

Stroller Circuit
Incorporate cardio, resistance training and core work while spending time with your little one. Bring your stroller and meet other parents on the track for a full body workout. Newborns welcome 

Exercise for New Moms
Come exercise and play with your baby at the same time-no babysitters needed! This is a great opportunity to meet other local moms and babies and to learn exercises you and your baby can do at home. The class will focus on restoring general strength, with some effort to elevate the heart rate. This class is ideal for moms with babies less than 12 months old. Please check with your healthcare provider, but generally this class is great for moms starting at four weeks after delivery (or six weeks after a C-section).  Please bring a big blanket, a sense of humor and your little one! 

Spanish With Me!
Take a journey through Spanish speaking lands! Parents and children will learn and explore together through song, dance and arts and crafts. Each week, we'll visit a different country, gaining both cultural understanding and language skills. Appropriate for children age 3-5. This class meets twice a week on Monday and Wednesday. Please register in the parent's name. Registration includes up to 2 kids

Little Salutations
(3-5 yrs)
Stand like a tree, swim like a fish and roar like a lion! Little Salutations will help maintain natural flexibility, help children develop conscious breathing and stimulate their imagination with creative poses, playful stretching, games, songs and relaxation activities.
