Aerial Yoga + Mindfulness Classes for Preschoolers, Kids, and Teens
Our 12-week classes teach aerial yoga and mindfulness to calm the body and the mind. Each session includes sensory stations, which introduce mindfulness of the breath, mindful eating, and aerial yoga. These simple mindfulness practices help children improve focus, enhance executive functioning, and handle stress to build happiness, resilience and healthy habits for life!
Our aerial yoga classes are mindfulness-based and are taught by Dr. Tracy. We have different levels based on age, ability, and experience. Each 12-week session has a different theme, but all of our classes are FUN and assisted by our amazing Mindful Child Team of professionals.
Space is limited to 10 children in all aerial classes. For details on cost and to register for classes click on the “Register Now” link. To learn more about the current theme and schedule keep scrolling.

Be forewarned kids love our high flying style of yoga and mindfulness so much even our free trials are wait listed! Sign-up soon to join the MOVEMENT.

SUMMER SESSION – Mindful Art
The activities in this session will combine aerial yoga, mindfulness, sensory play, and art. Creating mindful art projects boosts creativity, attention, self-esteem, and your child’s artistic ability. Each week we will complete a different mindful art project such as edible slime, affirmation rainbows, and a “happy box.” The mindful art lessons will focus on positive self-talk, how to establish new (healthy) habits, emotion & mood regulation, improved self-awareness, and easy everyday techniques to create more calm and inner peace.
Drop-ins are appropriate for all levels. Pre-registration online is required as we have limited space. Remember the early bird gets the hammock!
PRESCHOOL: For the next 7-weeks (6-8 to 7-27) we are offering a preschool drop-in for children ages 3-6. Our preschool class is on Saturday from 9:00 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. We incorporate FUN breathing exercises and school readiness into every class! Did we mention this class is brain-based, meaning everything we teach is based on neurological research to help your child grow physically and mentally! Cost is $10 per class and CHILDREN MUST BE POTTY TRAINED!
KIDS: For the next 7-weeks (6-10 to 7-22) we are offering a Monday 5:30-6:25 drop-in class for kids ages 7-12. Whether new to Mindful Child or an avid flyer, kids will have fun learning, practicing or fine-tuning their understanding of flight and mindfulness. Cost is $20 per class.
TEENS: This class is designed for the sake of de-stressing, both the body and the mind. The aerial hammock allows one to discover the mindfulness state quicker and stay there longer. It feels as if you are floating on a cloud releasing your worries into the atmosphere. This fun, relaxing class is recommended for all levels and teens needing to de-stress. The teen drop-in class is on Saturdays (11:30 A.M.- 12:25 P.M.). It is $20 per class for teens ages 13 – 18.
FALL SESSION – The Fantastic Elastic Brain
Did you know you can G-R-O-W your own brain? Or that making mistakes is a good thing because it helps your brain learn? When kids learn they have the power to grow their brains, amazing things can happen! This session is inspired by the book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain, by JoAnn Deak. The mindfulness lessons and poses in this research-based session will focus on ways to grow the brain. We will teach concepts through aerial yoga poses, art, kinesthetic learning, and games. Classes will offer strategies to help kids build resilience to stress, develop a growth mindset, focus their attention, and enhance their self-regulation skills.
Good To Know:
WHAT TO BRING: Please bring a water bottle. There’s no need to bring a yoga mat. We practice on padded yoga flooring.
WHAT TO WEAR: PLEASE, REMOVE JEWELRY! Stud earrings are okay. Come dressed in comfortable clothing free of snaps, zips or exposed buckles that could snag the hammock fabric. We will practice yoga barefoot so all shoes and socks will be dropped at the door.
WEAR LEGGINGS OR PANTS! It is highly recommended that kids wear leggings or pants to protect their skin as they move in the yoga fabric. When they do poses in the fabric with short shorts or leotards, it may be uncomfortable and limit participation. Loose and comfortable cotton pants, yoga pants or leggings are perfect!

Policies (please read before registering)
Mindful Child Aerial Yoga does NOT offer make-up classes. It is highly encouraged that students attend all classes. However, we keep classes small enough so that we can always catch kids up if they have missed a class.
CANCELLATION: Mindful Child Aerial Yoga has a NO refund policy. Your child’s registration holds a spot in our classes/camps/private sessions with limited space/hammocks. Deposits are always non-refundable, as they pay for registration, supplies and payroll. Once you register for a program, we commit to supporting your child through the entire semester, and we want our families to return that commitment. We also teach in a way that supports research-based social and emotional learning.
DROP-INS: We only offer drop-ins select times of the year. If you are unsure if you’d like to sign up for our classes, we’d love to have you at a FREE TRIAL CLASS!
Mindful Child Aerial Yoga requires that all children be registered and prepayment online is required before they can attend classes. We limit our classes to 10 children and we cannot take payments right before class as it takes time away from our students.
Behavior and character trait expectations:
Students are expected to adhere to the following character traits:
1). Be mindful of yourself and those around you.
2). Be kind and respectful to yourself, to others in the classroom, and to the instructors.
3). Be willing to try, learn and create new things each class.
Behavioral expectations for each child are to:
1). Follow safety instructions.
2). Stay on task during class lessons.
3). Avoid distracting others during meditation/relaxation.
** If a child is unable to meet these expectations in a group setting, you have the option of enrolling in private sessions in preparation for group work or enrolling in the support program for an additional $180/semester, which assigns an additional helper to support your child’s individual needs in class. Mindful Child Aerial Yoga reserves the right to remove or transfer a child that is unable to meet the above expectations to ensure safety of all children and to honor the time and practice of all enrolled.
** Due to liability issues we cannot have parents or siblings in the studio during sessions. We have a live video feed that parents may watch in the reception area and a 10 minute presentation the last day of our aerial class sessions in which parents may enter the studio and watch a short aerial presentation.
