Teenager Classes


The most valuable gift you can give your children is permission to be themselves and be at home in their physical form.          

Through dance, mindful movement curriculum and introduction to a variety of sports, our programming offers children the opportunity to move authentically while developing an appreciation for health.

Through Ascend Studio we offer weekly yoga and mindful play classes for local residents.
