Yoga For Kids  

Yoga for Kids Allows Them to De-Stress, Increase concentration, confidence, focus and mood are only a few of the perks that yoga offers kids. 

We’re living in a stressful time and kids need support. With pent-up energy and emotions running high, making physical activity a part of your kids’ routines can help diffuse tension, lift spirits, and reestablish a sense of normalcy.

Restorative Yoga for beginners

Private Fitness Classes Training NYC

Restorative yoga

This style of yoga “restores” the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance.

Restorative yoga is a slower, more restful, more passive approach to yoga that's meant to melt away muscle tension, create space in the body, and alleviate stress. It's less about building strength or working up a sweat than it is about deep mental and physical relaxation.

yoga and meditation can help mental health

Yoga + Meditation

Research shows yoga and meditation can help mental health issues by reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. Studies find mindfulness and breathing techniques support emotional well-being and quality of life when practiced regularly.

Here’s What People Are Saying 

Why children will benefit from doing yoga

Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children (ages 6 to 12). Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.


Key benefits of Restorative Yoga

Relaxes your mind and body. Yoga is linked to reduced stress and anxiety, and lower levels of cortisol, the stress hormone

Soothes the nervous system. Restorative yoga helps shift the balance from your fight-or-flight response (sympathetic nervous system) to your relaxation response, or the parasympathetic nervous system.

Enhances your mood. Yoga promotes relaxation and deep breathing, which, according to research, may reduce depressive symptoms.


What does research show about Yoga and Meditation for Wellness

Studies have suggested possible benefits of Yoga and Meditation for several aspects of wellness, including stress management, mental/emotional health, promoting healthy eating/activity habits, sleep, and balance.

More About Wellness

Stress management.  A 2020 review of 12 recent studies (672 total participants) of a variety of types of yoga and meditation for stress management in healthy adults found beneficial effects of yoga on measures of perceived stress in all the studies. Of 17 older studies (1,070 total participants) of yoga for stress management included in a 2014 review, 12 studies showed improvements in physical or psychological measures related to stress.

Mental/emotional health.  In a recent review of 14 studies (involving 1,084 total participants) that assessed the effects of yoga and meditation on positive aspects of mental health, most found evidence of benefits, such as improvements in resilience or general mental well-being.

Promoting healthy eating/activity habits. A 2018 survey of young adults (involving 1,820 participants) showed that practicing yoga and meditation regularly was associated with better eating and physical activity habits. In interviews, people who took the survey said they thought yoga supported healthier habits through greater mindfulness, motivation to participate in other forms of activity, and eating healthier. In addition, the yoga community itself was characterized as a social circle that encouraged connection, where healthy eating was commonplace.

Sleep. yoga and meditation has been shown to be helpful for sleep in several studies of cancer patients, women with sleep problems, and older adults and in individual studies of other population groups, including people with arthritis and women with menopause symptoms.

Balance. In a 2014 review, 11 of 15 studies (688 total participants) that looked at the effect of yoga on balance in healthy people showed improvements in at least one outcome related to balance. An additional study, published in 2016, showed that both yoga and stretching-strengthening exercises were effective in improving balance (as well as strength and flexibility) in healthy, previously sedentary older adults.

Thank you!

The Type A training is great  and highly customizable to your goals and I highly recommend them. I've been training with several trainers one for strength and another for Yoga and the mix is beyond perfect. I'm a new person physically and mentally!


-Training since 2021-

Very thoughtful on how to manage trainers and who trains with you. It is very much like a concierge. You let Nathaniel (the owner) know what you are looking for and he is able to match you up with the best trainer to meet your goals. It's nice having everything you need for your fitness and health goals in one place. Definitely recommend.
