Riverdale Park yoga studio launches children’s program -- Gazette.Net


Bikram Yoga Riverdale Park will launch a children’s program called Tiny Mats on May 10.

The 8-week program will include a class for 3- to 5-year-olds and another for children ages 6 to 12, said studio owner Kendra Blackett-Dibinga.

Younger children will take the class alongside their parents, who will learn techniques to help calm their children at home, Blackett-Dibinga said.

“Yoga is good for all ages,” she said. “It really helps people with a number of things. It helps people breathe and not get so worked up in life.”

While Bikram Yoga is characterized by a heated room, the children’s program will take place in a room of normal temperature, she said.

Blackett-Dibinga, who opened her studio in February, said she is a mother and enjoys practicing yoga with her children.

“It’s always nice to have an opportunity to share that part of my life with my girls,” she said.

Bikram Riverdale Park is located at 6202 Rhode Island Ave., Suite 200 in Riverdale Park. For more information, visit www.bikramyogariverdale.com.
