M3Yoga Child Minding

As part of our mission to make yoga accessible, we’re offering M3 Child Minding for select classes every week! This is so caregivers can carve out their own time for self-care and health

M3 Child Minding allows caregivers to practice yoga in our main studio while knowing that the child in their care is in good hands. All without the hassle and extra expense of finding a babysitter.

Our Child Minding includes a wide variety of art supplies, books, toys, games and, of course, yoga props for children to explore during their stay.
