Fitness classes kids can try

1. Frozen: A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure!

Perfect for Disney princesses, this 30-minute yoga class from Cosmic Kid Yoga gets a special call-out for the Frozen theme that makes getting limber that much more fun! Make Anna and Elsa proud, little yogis! 

The DribbleUp family of smart balls bring working out at home to a whole new level. The DribbleUp Smart Soccer Ball is particularly well-suited to the confines of a home—all you need is six-square-feet to be able to work on your footwork and develop the tricky touches that will make you unstoppable when you're out on the field. 


3. Unity Jiu Jitsu School

‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ (Toy Story)

No matter when or where we hear this favourite from Randy Newman, we can’t help but picture ourselves in Andy’s bedroom as Buzz, Woody and pals come to life while the toys' owners are out and about. This song is practically synonymous with the Toy Story franchise!
