Namaste baby: Free yoga class for parents, children

Want to get some quality exercise with your kids without having to push them in a stroller?

Try Mom N' Tot Yoga. Better yet, try it for free.

StrollerFit in Elk Grove is adding yoga classes for parents and children ages 3 and up and is holding a free trial class June 4.

No yoga mats or Happy Baby Pose know-how is required.

"Just bring water and be ready to have a good time," said Wendy Hoag, owner of Stroller Fit in Elk Grove.

The roughly 45-minute yoga classes during the eight week session are tailored for young children. Each class has a theme that will be familiar to children, such as "a visit to the zoo," Hoag said.

The goal is to combine strength and balance exercise with building self-confidence and the teaching the importance of fitness.

"It really is intended to be fitness for the parent and the child," she said.

The classes will be offered in the morning and evening and cost $15 per class, which covers one parent and up to two children.

"Dads are more than welcome too," Hoag said.

The free trial class is scheduled to be held at 10:30 a.m. June 4 in Elk Grove Park, near Rotary Grove.

To reserve a spot in the free trial class, e-mail Hoag or call her at (916) 690-7624.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
