Program History

The Flow and Grow Kids Yoga Difference

Our program was born out of a need for children's programming that promotes wellbeing, attention, stress reduction, while deemphasizing competition.

Flow and Grow Kids Yoga is an answer to that call for more balance in the highly structured lives of children. Research has shown that yoga in schools results in relaxation, less stress, and increased energy and attention in students.

We serve both private and public schools, yoga studios, daycares, preschools, and before and after school programs of children from ages 3 months to 18 years of age. We hire educators and clinicians with experience in child development, behavior management, and children's programming with a focus on mindfulness and yoga practices . The personnel we hire make all the difference. We have been around since 2012 and are continuing to serve new communities every day. We are actively seeking to add new schools to our community.

Desk Based Yoga (15-60 minutes)

No need to store mats, move furniture, or add extra transitions to the day. Perfect solution for schools that believe in movement and mindfulness but cannot afford to give up precious time or space. This is a teacher favorite. No mats needed.

Add-on to Extracurricular Activites (NEW!) (15-60 minutes)

This option is for schools that have students involved in sports and other activities. These students often can not fit in another commitment but still seek the benefits of yoga and mindfulness. Our instructors can begin or end sports practices or other activities with brief yoga classes. One instructor can serve several clubs in one afternoon. Mats optional. Schools provide and store mats.

“Our afterschool program has been working with Flow and Grow Yoga for several years now. Ms. Stephanie currently visits us once a week, providing classes to our students in pre-school through third grade. Stephanie brings warmth and energy to every class, and our students have benefited greatly from the program. Even our youngest students remain relaxed and focused throughout their practice. Many of our afterschool teachers also participate in the class, allowing them to connect with our students in a new, dynamic way.”
