Pre school Ages
These are fun. flexible classes in which yoga is introduced in a playful manner. Children are encouraged to be confident and clear whilst learning respect for themselves and others. Yoga will nurture focus, strength & concentration, even at these early stages of their development. Games, stories, postures & mantras are used to engage their imagination & creativity.
Ages 5 – 11
At this age children are beginning to learn about their bodies and breath and understand the philosophy of Yoga. This is a 30 – 45 minute class. The children are taken through a fun and dynamic class using traditional yoga practices and games, moving deeper into postures. Meditation and relaxation becomes more relevant as they deal school pressures.
12 – Teens
My teen years were joyous and full of laughter, however, I can also remember some very tough times. The transition from child to adult, alongside school & exam pressures (and pretending that I knew what I wanted to be when I ‘grew up’) all amounted to some tearful nights. Teens Need Yoga!! The yoga studio will allow them to recharge, download emotions and reset their energy systems ready for the next challenge they will face. The teen classes are run very much in line with an adult class, working on the breath, postures, alignment, strength and that all important calming relaxation.
