Music for young children - Yoga for adults

Experience the Joy of Family Music® with your children ages birth - 5 years in a Music Together class

Enjoy Kriplau Yoga classes in Alexandria at Mount Vernon UU Church

Cheryl Sabo, Director and Teacher

Music:  every child's birthright.  For 14 years, Music Together Vivo has inspired young children and their families to make music a joyful, natural part of family life.  All children are musical and can learn the skills necessary to make music.  When parents, caregivers, siblings, and teachers join together to model enjoyable music making experiences, children absorb and grow into the musical people they were born to be.  Give your children and grandchildren Harmony Within!

Sing!  Dance!  Play!  Learn!

Summer camps and classes are now available for registration.  See classes to register.

Yoga:  work the body, quiet the mind, bask in peace.  Harmony Within offers Kripalu Yoga for adults.  Each class includes breath work, flowing yoga postures, meditation and relaxation.  When the body and mind are quiet, energy is balanced and you feel great.  Give yourself the gift of Harmony Within.  See class schedule below.  Online registration for Yoga is coming soon.


Dance:  recharge your batteries with YogaDance.  Let Your Yoga Dance is an eclectic combination of yoga, spiritual movement, and modern dance.  With funky, fun world music and a wide variety of movement activities, you'll get a great workout for your body and spirit.  Harmony Within offers YogaDance for ages 14 through 96.


About me:  My first memory from childhood is skipping and jumping happily across a huge room.  I must have been 3 or so, and though the details of the class are fuzzy, the the memory of the feeling - pure joy while moving freely to music - is crystal clear.  I have not always been so connected to my physical self.  Sadly, as a teenager I became critical and worried about what everyone else thought of me.  It was my great good fortune in college to have a dance teacher who created a safe environment where we could move and experience the joy of being connected to our physical selves just as we were, without constant striving to be 'more of this' and 'less of that.'  I fell in love - again - with dance! 

I discovered Kripalu Yoga shortly after my first son was born.  From the very first class I attended with Sandy, I knew I had found 'my yoga.'  Sandy's way of gently leading us away from the stress of our daily lives and deep into our inner experience felt organic and whole, and I craved more of it!  The feeling of being at home in my own skin, of body being happily tired and mind joyful yet calm, was familiar and wonderful.  After over 10 years of being a student in Sandy's classes, I am honored to be taking over for her as she relocates to Houston.  I completed my YogaDance teacher training in 2011 with Mega at Kriplau Center in Massachusetts.  The pillars of a YogaDance class are freedom to move without judgement and to dance one's personal story in a safe environment.  I'll be completing my yoga teacher training this June, also at Kripalu.  I'm so pleased to be setting out on this next phase of my teaching life, and I hope you'll come along with me.

Join us for classes and learn why we are the most-loved family music program in Alexandria and Manassas VA!

Music Together Vivo is proud to bring the internationally recognized Music Together program to families in Northern Virginia. During our weekly classes, babies, toddlers, preschoolers—and their grownups!—joyfully sing, dance, clap, hop, wiggle, play instruments, and create lasting memories. So much more than just "mommy and me," Music Together brings the entire family together to make music—in and out of the classroom. Parents, brothers, sisters, nannies, and grandparents all join in the fun. In fact, Music Together is so much fun, it's easy for parents to forget that making music supports their children's development, too. Discover the joy of family music for yourself in a Music Together Vivo class!

Open registration for classes in Nativity Lutheran Church, Messiah Lutheran Church, and the Ben Lomond Community Center is now underway. Visit our Classes page to enroll today. Or give us a call at 703-619-6441 to schedule your class visit!
