Kids Yoga (4-6)
Kids Yoga (4-6) is an ideal time to begin a yoga practice as their young minds are naturally creative and curious. This class inspires children to use their imagination to teach them about nature and the environment, helping them to learn about the world through their bodies, which develops their innate ability to listen, observe and imagine.
Breath techniques will also be taught via creative and inspired methods. A short period of relaxation encourages them to close their eyes, as they learn to self regulate and prepare for meditation. Role-playing, partner games, and make believe will foster a sense of self belief, and discipline, as well as inspire them to become more connected with their innate awareness.
Kids Yoga (7-11)
Kids Yoga (7-11) introduces yoga poses, breathing techniques, visualisation, and deep relaxation to help improve the learning abilities of school-aged children. In this class, we will focus on developing flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination, as we promote the development of self confidence by encouraging the child's imagination and self-expression. Children will learn effective communication and good listening skills, which in turn fosters self-respect, compassion and kindness for themselves, and for others.
Yoga also teaches children that with increased focus, they can increase their attention naturally and promote stillness and quieting of the mind. This can help children deal with the stresses of living in a chaotic world where constant stimulation is a regular part of life.
