Children are vital to the passage of yoga to our next generation. Please bring your children with you to practice. We also have a separate room at the studio where people can arrange child care, or trade off if there is a group of people; we will even help you arrange that. If you are a mother or father and have a small child and want to come to yoga, you are hereby given permission to do so. Yes, we know that little kids wander around. As a community we must accept this. Students that have some issue with children being in yoga class need to find another place to practice. Yes, we know that little kids scream and cry; if they do it too much then you can take a break from your practice and deal with them. Yes, we realize that your kids cannot sit still for an hour; bring a laptop, an ipad (we have one you can borrow) and let them watch cartoons, color, draw, or whatever is your parenting style. We are okay with it.
If you have friends who all want to practice together, come at the same time, and rotate one parent at a time to stay with the kids. There is no charge for using the room that sits at the entrance of the studio; it can probably fit, at most 5-6 kids. This is something that will never change at Ashtanga Bellingham. You can bring your kids with you.
