Outdoor Yoga for Kids and Families: Taught by certified kids yoga instructor Elisha Simpson

This summer, laughing heart yoga offers upbeat and transformational classes outdoors to celebrate the beauty of Croton on Hudson, NY. Classes take place from July 6 through August 12 at Vassello Park and Croton Landing. Offerings include First Saturdays Family Yoga and classes for kids and teens.

All classes will be taught by certified kids yoga instructor Elisha Simpson, who seeks to help young people manage their stress. “Yoga helps the body gain flexibility and strength, and it helps kids find ways to control their emotions and manage challenging situations,” says Simpson. “During laughing heart yoga classes we laugh a lot, and it’s one of the best ways to connect to the joy inside each of us.”

Family yoga at Croton Landing takes place July 6 and August 3 from 10 to 11 a.m. On Mondays, yoga classes for kids (ages 8 to 12) run from 5 to 6 p.m. in Vassello Park.
