Yoga

The most enjoyable and accessible way for kids to practice yoga is through the use of story and sound. As a result, children’s creativity and imaginations are nurtured alongside the numerous health benefits of physical movement through the different tales each week. For our childrens yoga class everyone can participate regardless of their physical abilities. The stories As the competitive element is not present in the yoga classroom, children are free to enjoy moving their bodies in interesting and fun ways in a space where everyone is equal. This develops self esteem and positive body image so children feel happy and confident in the skin they’re in!   At the end of all the moving, and holding, and being and breathing, the children will be more open to the stillness element of the class, with a greater ability to be completely relaxed one of the chief outcomes of our 5 week course.
