Kids Yoga Classes

Yoga for Kids From 2 -12 years

Our kids classes for 2 – 12-year-olds combine learning, yoga poses, free movement, breathing techniques, games and relaxation techniques. Yoga helps children build developmental skills as well as gross motor skills strengthen and centres.

For the young students, certain poses quickly become familiar favourites and are repeated to encourage mastery while for the older students, more advanced poses and activities are introduced gradually to stimulate and challenge.

Movement-based stories and exciting themes take the kids on adventures and threaded through the tales are teachable moments during which children are able to voice their own thoughts and questions. Our stories and themes reinforce values such as kindness, respect, peace and self-love.

Our yoga-inspired activities to encourage students to practice both independence and team building. A variety of activities and approaches ensure that all kids will feel welcomed, challenged and engaged.

Benefits of Yoga:

In the fast-paced world we live in, our children find themselves inundated with pressures and stress. It may not appear that factors such as increasing school pressures, busy and harried parents, competitive sports and activities, extra lessons, peer pressure, overstimulation through media such as television and video games, shopping malls, mobile phones and the internet, influence our children but they do have an effect, usually negative.

  • Yoga, when presented in a child friendly, fun, creative and loving manner, is a proven and extremely effective method to counter the pressures and stresses of modern life experienced by our kids.
  • When children learn techniques, such as those taught in yoga, they navigate life and its challenges a little easier.
  • Yoga is a powerful tool to assist kids obtain a sense of calmness and develop a connection with themselves and the world around them.
  • It has been proven that children practicing yoga display improved behaviour, academic performance and physical health – as well as a strong mind-body connection.
  • Yoga teaches mindfulness, with the intention of improving learning, and supports the health and well being of the child.
