It’s never too early to start yoga – kid’s yoga is a really fun way to increase self-awareness, co-ordination and confidence through stretching and strengthening the body.
We offer a weekly 45 minute Parent and Toddler yoga class on Mondays at 11am which weaves yoga postures, music, breathing, storytelling, and relaxation techniques together to create imaginative and fun yoga classes for toddlers and carers. Yoga is a wonderful activity to share with your toddler. It helps them to develop agility and stamina and also helps with their mental and emotional development. As well as improving their concentration and helping them to relax, yoga offers toddlers a chance to connect with their bodies and to express themselves.
We will also be starting yoga for school-age children aged between 5 and 9 from 18th April at 4pm. Yoga for children can enhance focus and concentration and really importantly help them to learn how to slow down and relax. Postures are practised in themed classes with lots of games and partner work to make it fun.
Our kids classes are taught by Emily McGregor, founder, and creator of Generation Mind Body and Soul – a program for toddlers, children and teenagers, incorporating yoga, music, mindfulness, meditation, nutrition, and self-belief. Emily has worked with children and teens for many years now. She is a Starchild yoga teacher and a Birthlight toddler yoga teacher and she also has a degree in music specializing in the effects music can have on developing children. Her aim is to help guide this potential-rich generation to be the happiest and healthiest that they can be, and to provide them with the skills to achieve that potential; skills they’ll employ for the rest of their lives. There has never been a more challenging, stressful or difficult time to be a young person and yoga, music, mindfulness, and meditation are amazing tools that can help young people to find strategies and coping techniques to deal with difficult situations in the best possible way.
Classes are priced at £8.
