Monkey Do! Yoga’s Offerings and History

“It’s for EVERYbody. Yoga teaches us to be comfortable where we are, in the skin we’re in. Children learn where their individual level is and challenge themselves slowly working to move past that – both physically and mentally. So everyone has the ability to say ‘I can do this’ and see themselves progress.”

“The moment my daughter and I walked into Monkey Do! Yoga, smiles spread across both of our faces. The space was colorful, light-filled and inviting, and the instructors friendly and welcoming. Newcomers are greeted at the door while a handful of happy kids run around awaiting class. And the fun hadn’t even begun.”
