Kids Yoga Classes!
Kids Yoga classes are fun and stimulating but they also teach children important skills which will help lay the foundations for a happy and healthy life.
Children can suffer from stress and worry just as much as adults so one of the first things they learn in our Kids Yoga classes is how to relax.
Yoga encourages children to be at ease with themselves, to be confident and to be strong.
This is on top of all the usual benefits we associate with yoga, such as good posture, improved concentration, a healthy body, proper breathing habits and so on.
All children can enjoy Yoga, no child is too fidgety or energetic!
What do the classes involve?
We have separate classes for pre-school children and for older children.
Pre School Classes (for 3 & 4 year olds) :
These classes involve games, stories, movement, singing and calming relaxation.
Parents take part in the class as well and the kids love that!
Doing Yoga together makes these classes a wonderfully nurturing and sharing experience for you and your child.
After School Club :
These classes are for older, school age children. They involve warm ups, creative and exciting games, Yoga posture work, breathing practices and mindful relaxation.
Parents can drop children off for this class or stay and join in!

“I love the fact that yoga is totally inclusive. All kids can enjoy and benefit from the games, yoga postures, breathing techniques and relaxations as they are delivered in a fun and engaging way.
One of my favorite times in class is sharing the joy when a mini-yogi achieves something they believed they were not able to do. For some this may be a tricky balance, for others it may be simply staying still and enjoying the whole of the relaxation – and feeling great afterwards!”
