The Art of Yoga is part of The Magic House's Good to Grow family health initiative and is specially designed for preschoolers with a parent or caregiver. This unique, seven-week series of classes combines art and yoga to engage children's minds and bodies in fun and healthy activities using movement, imagination and cooperative play.

Based on the children's book You Are a Lion! And Other Fun Yoga Poses, little ones ages 2 to 5 and their special grown up will take a yogic walk through the jungle as they mimic animal movements to stretch, bend and strengthen their muscles. After the yoga practice, children will have the opportunity to create artwork using their yoga experience as inspiration.

The classes will be held on Wednesdays from 9:15 to 10:20 a.m. at The Magic House. Cost is $85 for non-members and $70 for members for the full series. Admission to the museum is included. 

Registration is required. More information: magichouse.org
