Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $55, you get a five FlexiFun pass pack for five parent-child Side by Side or Buddhi Bonding classes at kidsrevolving in Santa Monica (a $110 value).
Instructors at kidsrevolving help children harmonize their bodies and minds through age-appropriate classes that employ creative movement and yoga-inspired relaxation. Wee ones and their parents flow together through accessible poses designed for growing forms in gentle routines accented with upbeat music and games. Saunter into an interactive Side by Side class (ages 2–4) for 45 minutes of fun, kinesthetic learning ventures including rhythmic games, breathing exercises, and stretching positions demonstrated on Stretch Armstrong dolls. Buddhi Bonding classes (ages 4–6 and 6–12) cater to older children and strengthen familial bonds via challenging tandem exercises, relaxing movements, and old Double Dare obstacle courses.
Parents and caregivers watch their nurslings learn, grow, exercise, and have fun with one another in a modern studio with bright green floors, large glass windows, and a clean, geometric design based on Pythagoras's self-addressed love letters. Morning and afternoon classes take place throughout the week to fit in busy toddler agendas.
