CommUnity Yoga Preschool

A unique “living yoga,” child-led learning environment

Welcome to our CommUnity Yoga Preschool

This is the place you’ve been looking for that aligns with a lifestyle that embraces a nature-based education infused with mindfulness yoga practices and lifestyle. This is where your little human gets to explore organically the wonders of their mind in a child-led classroom. This is where the woods is as much their classroom as the one inside. Living yoga means your child is learning to be their best selves; compassionate, honest, ethical, kind, and loving to all including themselves. In our daily schedule we incorporate not only hatha yoga and breathing but mindful action, thought and word. Weaving science, Spanish, storytelling, songs, and imagination into every day. All families are invited to join in monthly gatherings like pot luck dinners, family hikes or picnics. We will also offer inspiring parent programs. As this is a preschool for your whole child, it is also a CommUnity that includes the whole family. Welcome

All are included * All are welcome * All are celebrated.

“The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.”  Maria Montesorri
