  • Karma Kids Yoga

    104 West 14th Street, 646-638-1444;

    Yes, you’ll hear the occasional om, but the main focus at Karma Kids Yoga is on moving. Kids stretch their bodies into animal figures, barking and wagging their tails like dogs, lumbering around swaying their elephant trunks. “It’s not necessary to get the postures correct,” says co-owner Shari Vilchez-Blatt. “It’s about getting exercise and having fun.” Yoga birthday parties are available, too—$400 for two hours with up to ten kids, pizza and juice included. Bring your own tofu cake.
