Find your zen

Mindfulness and meditation seem to be on everyone’s, well, mind. With both parents and kids feeling the stress of our fast-paced lifestyles, it’s essential to find the time to step back, unplug and recharge the body and mind. Yogis have long known the physical and mental benefits of meditative exercise, but while yoga is traditionally seen as a solitary practice, it also makes for a great family activity with kid-and-parent classes gaining popularity. Head to one of these family-friendly studios together to cleanse your chakras and find balance — figuratively and literally.

A modern studio with four Seattle locations, 8 Limbs Yoga offers fun family classes for children ages 3–7 with parent or caregiver, featuring playful exercises, songs and age-appropriate poses (pre-registration required). Classes for kids and teens are also available.
