At the Karma Kids Yoga studio, children are encouraged to explore and discover the mind and body in a fun-filled way!
Karma Kids Yoga is a fun, creative approach to yoga that can be very helpful for children whose bodies are still developing. The use of animated poses and basic stretching exercises promote strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness. Breathing and visualization techniques teach kids how to focus, relax and develop self-control.
Kids will improve concentration and focus, stimulate their imagination and help to release energy in a fun, safe environment. Using interactive games and animated postures, kids learn about animals, nature and basic anatomy through playing yoga.
The Karma Kids Yoga program also promotes inner-strength, confidence and self-esteem; a feeling of well-being and respect for others; and, love for one’s self, inside and out.

Who says Valentine’s Day has to be all about the chocolate and candy hearts? This week, our friends at Fitmapped have found some healthy Valentine’s happenings. Whether for yourself or your sweetheart, we guarantee these fitness finds will do a body good!
Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be about a significant other (or it can, we’re not trying to leave anyone out here). Why not give your body some love with one of these fitness events?
We don’t mean THAT kind of fitness (we keep it G-rated here at FiTMAPPED). But hey, you can always drag your boo if you have one.
Run the Valentine’s Day 5K in Prospect Park the Sunday before and hey, maybe you’ll meet a cutie to take you out on Thursday the 14th. If not, at least head to Park Slope for brunch after your hard work. We hear that Stone Park Café is pretty delish.
Need last minute plans? Head to the Lost Battalion Hall Recreation Center for a Valentine’s Day Dance for adults and seniors sponsored by WellCare. Sweat the punch off with music, raffles, and the like.
Do we have some single ladies? (Don’t worry guys, you can tag along too.)
And if you’re coupled up, the Integral Yoga Institute is offering a V-Day Special. Bring a date and your date takes class for free.
So go on and get your sweat on. And don’t forget to bring Cupid with you.
