Go with the (yoga) flow

You and your kids can go with the flow at Family Flow Yoga, 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18 at CorePower Yoga, 34 South Vine St. in Grant Square, Hinsdale. The class is designed for children ages 5-10 with a parent.

“We do fun yoga poses. It’s very interactive and playful,” said studio manager Cassandra Choronzy. She said that it’s good for kids to learn yoga because, “It helps with their attention—helping them to focus and find a little bit of quietness, when asked, but also playfulness, when asked. It also helps create body awareness, getting used to how your body can move and function.” Yoga has also been shown to help relieve stress.

Choronzy added that the parent-child classes help build strong relationships.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes. Mats are provided and the poses are done to music.

The fee is $5 per couple for members, $10 for nonmembers. Additional children are free for members, $5 each for nonmembers.
