Give your kids the best start in life with the best Pilates and functional movement program for kids in the world today.
The benefits of Pilates for adults is becoming more well known as millions of us are flooding classes and studios around the world seeking its benefits.

And more benefits like:
Improved posture and spinal alignment are realized as exercises increase the strength and flexibility of the abdominal and inner muscles of the body (the core or trunk). It promotes toned, sleek bodies and improves athletic performance. Through Pilates, children can gain awareness of their body and learn how to move efficiently and gracefully. As children grow, their bodies are in a constant state of change and development.
The physical attributes like posture, the way they walk that they will take through life. Pilates can help establish correct principles of movement that children will use for their entire lives. It will also create a balanced musculature that can alleviate pain and reduce the potential for injury now and as they continue to grow into adulthood.
Because Pilates is a mind and body discipline, it can guide kids to a stronger body, and a more relaxed state of mind. Working to strengthen their bodies can increase children's self esteem, stamina, abdominal strength and sleep. That, combined with the focused breathing techniques essential to the exercises, can help kids attain a much more serene and less stressful outlook.
Let’s inspire our children to move and feel better too!
Mediation For Children
Ms. Ethel Sato`s Mindfulness and Meditation classes spark “the joy of being” for children.
Through this course, kids gain a deeper understanding of the mind/body connection, sensory perception, and their interconnection with all beings. They learn tools that help them navigate the many changes occurring in their lives.
Once a week mediation class for 6- 12yr olds that helps kids and teens learn to absorb information better and pay attention to what’s happening in the present moment through all of their senses.
Science Shows Meditation Benefits on Children's Brains and Behavior
A reprieve from outside trauma Increased attention
Better mental health Self-awareness and self-regulation
Building empathy and happiness
Here are just some of the benefits.
1- Enhanced focus
In just a generation or two, things have changed so much that our attention spans can’t
keep up. Between social media and technological gadgets, kids – and adults – are
constantly surfing the internet, interacting via social media and playing video games indoors
instead of reading a book, taking a walk or playing sports. Children who grow up with their
noses in their devices often find it difficult to focus and remain attentive. Meditation teaches
them that it’s possible to direct their attention at one thing at a time, and that it actually feels
great not to be distracted.
2. Fostering compassion and self-esteem
Due to pressures and circumstances beyond their control (and sometimes beyond anyone’s control), kids may sometimes feel like they’re not able to pass muster. This can be tough sometimes, especially when a child is bullied or badly teased by others. Most of the insecurities people have as adults can be traced back to their childhoods. The good news is that meditation can bolster children’s feelings of security, empathy and inner stability, and this, in turn, builds compassion, joy and self-esteem. Meditation teaches kids – and adults – that right now is enough.
Mindfulness for children helps kids gain self-awareness and become more confident. The confidence develops naturally when kids learn from their meditation practice that they don’t have to react to all of their thoughts and emotions – they can choose which ones merit their attention and response. Confident kids are better equipped to deal with unfamiliar situations. Thanks to this adaptability, they become better problem solvers and develop a deeper appreciation of life.
Children’s meditation helps them learn how to share their love with other children. They become more patient and understanding, listen more readily to others and empathize with them.
After five weeks of regular mindfulness sessions, teachers reported that students became more focused, participatory, and caring.
Clearly, mindful children have the tools they need to be happy children.
