About Little Hippies
Little Hippies is a children’s yoga company that offers yoga classes to children between the ages 2 – 12, teens, and families. All Little Hippies yoga classes are integrative and open to children with Special Needs.
Little Hippies is all about encouraging the healthy development of today’s youth for a more positive, strong, and healthy future. It is no secret that our society is currently struggling with conditions such as obesity, anxiety, and depression- all of which we can reduce by taking an “upstream” approach to health. By supporting children physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally through the Little Hippies program, we hope to encourage the healthy development of children for a healthier and happier tomorrow.
Little Hippies has taken into consideration the standards outlined by yoga organizations such as Yoga Alliance, and fellow kids yoga teacher training programs. We have designed this program to go above and beyond these expectations, creating experienced and creative teachers who are not only able to provide students with an amazing yoga experience, but who can also connect with these children and their families.
By taking the Little Hippies Kids Yoga Teacher Training, you are not only becoming a “children’s yoga instructor”, you are investing in the well being of our tiny humans for future generations to come. We hope to set “the standard” for children’s yoga teacher training.
What is a Little Hippie? "Little Hippie": An infant, child, or teen who has a zest for exploring, creating, moving, and shaking! Children of all abilities are welcome in our classes.
Their Story Co-owners Chloe Dusser and Jenna Galloway are two great friends who decided to put their heart & soul into a company designed to encourage healthy development in kids and provide a supportive & fun community for families.
Our company Little Hippies is all about giving back. For every yoga class purchased, we provide a FREE yoga class to a child in need.
Little Hippies provides a very inclusive environment, creating a place for each child in our yoga classes- regardless of ability. We ensure that children have a safe and welcoming space to practice in, where they are supported and given the opportunity to learn, thrive, and belong. All the lessons and skills learned during our classes are important tools for living harmoniously at home, at school, and in the community.
Our main goal is to encourage every child to explore their creativity, express their unique personalities through physical movement, and build an awesome little yoga community where kids feel supported.
Our teachers care deeply about children and share in the fresh and optimistic outlook they have towards life as they are growing. Each day, we witness the powerful and unique ability of yoga to bring out the best in our students. From fostering imaginations and creativity, to developing motor skills and promoting healthy bodies, we believe that play and yoga are critical parts of childhood.
