What are the benefits
of Yoga for children?
I can provide kids yoga for ages 2 - 12 years. Weather these are private sessions held at the local community centre, or in a school / nursery setting for lunchtimes and / or after school Clubs. The Classes will be a combination of traditional Hatha Yoga, gently introducing asana practice, using storytelling, themes and visualisation to create a fun and engaging space. We will be using breath play to help find awareness between the breath and how if can effect how we feel. Each session will be age appropriate to assist learning and development. We will be using relaxation and visualisation techniques to introduce meditation. Using mindful movement and creativity to find calm and focus, to develop self-confidence and build connection to each other. Developing lifelong skills and tools to deal with the every day.
