Tiny Blooms offers a welcoming environment for kids trying yoga for the first time or those familiar with the practice. Classes and camps vary according to age and skill level and often include a craft and meditation. There are also Spanish sessions, which are taught in both English and Spanish. “I remember one particular student made a mindfulness jar in our class. He didn’t seem too excited about the craft.

ig ideas often spark from a tiny thought. Stefanie Ezratty, owner of Tiny Blooms Yoga, says that after she completed her yoga teacher training, she immediately knew that she wanted to teach children. “Though there’s a variety of yoga studios for adults at Lake Norman,” she says, there really isn’t anything that focuses on children.” Tiny Blooms recently opened its new studio in Huntersville as part of Blossom Tree Wellness, a collective that supports children from birth through teens. You’re never too young to start, however, Ezratty says there is a lot of benefit to beginning in the 3- to 5-year-age range. “Our classes can help kids who may feel stressed and overwhelmed by teaching them breathing techniques and mindfulness,” explains Ezratty. “Yoga can also be an outlet for children who struggle with confidence; they become stronger
