5:30 pm - 7:15 pm
Bikram Yoga Capital Area
Every Thursday for the 5:45 pm class, please join us (in-person or on Zoom!) for our very special therapeutic yoga class for kids/youth and their parents or grandparents. (Please always check the schedule page to verify.)
Kids and parents/grandparents – please arrive prior to 5:35 pm to sign-in. Any new students should arrive by 5:30 to register. Masks are required in the lobby and for the beginning and ending of the yoga class.
Kids ages 6-13 practice the floor series for only $5 on Thursday evenings. Youth ages 14 and up may practice the full class for $10. Parents pay the usual rate (introductory trial, regular membership, punchcard, regular price drop-in, etc).
IN-PERSON PROTOCOL: During the standing series, adults and youth ages 14 and up practice as usual, and kids 13 and under remain in the hall with quiet activities. (NO phones or screen-devices, please. We have coloring & drawing books and materials if you forget something to bring, or the kids may watch through the glass door).
At the mid-class savasana, kids 13 and under join the class for the remaining 35-40 minutes and practice the floor series only. Once interest, motivation, discipline, and temperature tolerance are sufficient, youth may be allowed to start practicing the full class. Please speak with director in advance with any questions.
Youth practicing online may do the full class with a parent, or they may join the parent at the floor series. Parents/grandparents sign in to the Zoom meeting at the beginning of class and practice the full yoga class.
Is this still a Bikram Yoga Class?
We still practice the identical sequence and use the same detailed, encouraging, and inclusive instructional methods as in our traditional Bikram Yoga classes at BYCA.
It is often even more inspiring than a typical class. One time we had 10 kids in class with 20+ adults, and ages from 6 to 94 in the same room.
Bikram Yoga is already magical, but this class is extra special.
Many thanks to Rajashree Choudhury for her inspiration and leadership. Her vision and the work of USA Yoga inspire youth to take up a yoga practice. At BYCA you can see this in action!
