Yoga Classes for Kids of All Ages Now Offered at Connec-To-Talk in Wilton. Classes Begin October 6th!*


In speaking with the professionals at Connec-To-Talk in Wilton, I've learned that the practice of yoga among children is a rapidly expanding and becoming a very popular form of exercise, discipline and relaxation.
