Our yoga tots support group is a pre-preschool style group where mom/dads/caregivers can come with their toddlers. The morning will begin by exploring movement with yoga + music (+ maybe even boogie a little). The group then moves onto 'circle time' to enjoy a socially conscious inspired children's book together + while the little ones enjoy exploring parallel play or some may even begin to navigate moments of playing together, the adults will commune with a brief discussion about the themes of the story + how we can thread the lessons from the book into our child's + family's lives. Lastly, the little ones will enjoy a mindful art project with you, further developing their sensory-motor skills. This group really is like a mini preschool morning but where you can remain an active participant in your little one's educational experience and growth! For more information and to sign-up, please email info@happybabyLA.com.

Our Mindful Mama/Parent + Tot Groups are a supportive + fun group for moms and/or dads who find themselves challenged by the sometimes tumultuous years of toddlerhood. Learning how to respond, not react, is hard during this developmental stage. In this group you will learn techniques for understanding your child's experience of the world from a developmental perspective grounded in neurobiology, and tools to help you cope with difficult moments in parenting. These tools over the long term are designed to facilitate a close and trusting relationship and are mostly facilitated by licensed marriage and family therapists trained in child development.
Drawing from principles of mindful parenting, conscious discipline + non-violent communication, these therapeutic, experiential support groups are kept small so there is plenty of time to explore each participant’s unique relationship to their child. The weekly class format is very similar to many RIE groups, with the exception that our group is led by family and child therapists, and there is an emphasis on increasing reflective functioning and self awareness in order to create a more cohesive and peaceful relationship within the family. For more information and to join our waitlist, please email info@happybabyLA.com. Due to the specificity of the age ranges - registration for this group is not available online.
We are gauging interest for adding other groups ... please contact us if you would like to be added to this list.
