Balance Studios was founded by teachers with the mission of increasing awareness
and confidence in children. 

We have worked to create an environment that echoes the wonderful communal spirit of Chattanooga, where families and friends gather, grow, play and learn together.

What Do We Really Want to Give our Kids?

I'm asking myself, "What do I really want for my kids this coming year?" Do I really want them to have another stuffed animal, a remote control car, a laptop, a new doll? 

Preschool artists: Curious, determined, and willing to take chances!

Preschoolers are amazing artists, and here's why - they're curious, determined, and willing to take chances. What a fantastic way to approach life!

Why Kids Yoga?

Many people are surprised when I tell them that I teach kids yoga. I get responses like, “Kids do yoga?!” and “How do you get them to be still?” Bottom line: kids yoga is very different than “adult” yoga!
