Not to mention, yoga helps to build strength and increase flexibility! Your yogi-in-training can expect to practice flowing asanas, fun arm balances, and standing balance poses.

You’ve probably heard of Sky Zone from countless birthday parties, but did you know it has a special toddler and me time? On Friday and Saturday mornings (times vary), little ones 5 years and younger can jump around like monkeys on a bed. If they can walk, they can jump! Sky Zone wants to make sure everyone can participate in the bouncy fun, which is why it hosts a special needs time the second Monday of every month at 6pm. Specifically designed for those who may have sensitivities to bright lights and loud music, this is a time when the music turns down but the fun turns up!

Recommended age: 5 and under for Toddler & Me

Cost: $8/child + $2 for pair of sky socks to keep; parent/guardian jumps free
