Kids yoga classes are VERY different to adult yoga!
Children's yoga is loud, full of energy and creativity.
Children need to express themselves through play, movement, singing, songs and music and engaging with one another.
We approach yoga with a sense of fun and curiosity.
Focusing on having fun in a creative, energetic way keeps children engaged and interested.
Our classes are attention span and ability appropriate
Our classes provide challenges and repetition. Challenges are important to help children to grow and push themselves. Children gain valuable physical, emotional and mental skills through sequential lesson planning.
We always provide positive feedback
It is extremely important for a child’s self-esteem to hear encouragement. We focus on the good – there is no wrong way, as long as a child is not at risk of hurting themselves.
We teach breathing and relaxation
Learning to relax the body and mind helps to calm the nervous system. We use meditation, visualisations, dramatisations, specific breathing techniques and singing to assist with relaxation.
We use props and visuals...
such as flash cards, puppets, stuffed toys, books, musical instruments, just to name a few, to help children stay on task and to provide visual support. Props also encourage turn taking and reinforcement of positive social interactions.
Every child can do it
