Yoga for children

Yoga children is exploring our world using our body, our mind and our hearts to find our more of whats really going on inside and out.

Yoga for children is just another avenue for development. Correction: Yoga is another avenue for development, for all ages.

The YogaKids programme, is the foundation of Yoga for children with Marie Mills.

The YogaKids programme is based on Howard Gardners theory of multiple intelligences, eight ways in which we understand the world, eight ways in which children learn.  For more details go to my blog post on Yoga for children.

Here is an idea of what all children can expect in a Yoga for children class or workshop:

  • Yoga postures to explore their connection to their environment as a whole, whether it is through animals, nature, robots, current affairs, school, play, family life and even outerspace.

  • mindfulness tools and what mindfulness is.

  • awareness development including finding self awareness and awareness of others

  • how to breathe better and why we should.

  • how Yoga becomes a benefit to the body and what different postures do for us.

  • Reading comes alive with Yoga, brings the story to the children through active postures (with sound…gets kind of noisy sometimes!)

  • relaxation, simple visualisations, quiet quests, mind mapping, creative bursts.

At the end I try to set a seed of personal quiet time, its importance at home and how to encourage it to grow in their life. And then what that quietness means to each of us in our own experience.

Surprisingly all of the above can happen in one class, or just a select few- you never know if the class plan you have will go according to your wishes, but the childrens input is the intervention between the plan or some other direction.

These classes are designed to be fun, creative, high energy and calming by the end….I hope.

The full fee is required to book a child’s place, booking essential.
