Little Shanti Yoga was created by Wendy Ferraro, a former preschool teacher turned certified kids yoga instructor and Holistic Health Coach! Wendy realized the impact yoga had on her students and wanted to share that with kids everywhere!
The benefits of yoga for kids are endless and at Little Shanti Yoga this important habit starts at a young age. Yoga allows children to feel empowered through movement and breath. Mindfullness thinking is incorporated into our practice, allowing the kids to have a sense of community amongst themselves. With busy schedules these days, kids take on stress at a young age. With Little Shanti Yoga, classes are open and free so that children can become more in tune with their bodies and world around them!
From your brain to your toes, Little Shanti Yoga uses every part of your body building balance, strentgh, and focus. Games, themes, poses, relaxation, and meditation make every class fun! All class sizes are small so that each student can get the individual attention they deserve. 
Little Shanti Yoga is not a franchise, infact it is a ONE woman business! Miss Wendy teaches every class and knows every student on a more personal level. She understands that every child counts and wants to give them the individual attention they deserve. Miss Wendy knows that when you feel good you do good and this starts with taking care of your body! Come join me for yoga...
