I am excited to announce that I am finally starting a Children’s Yoga Class which will run on Friday evenings starting from Friday 12th January 2018.
I have wanted to run Children’s Yoga classes ever since I completed my additional children’s yoga training back in 2015 but I have been so busy with other yoga projects that it is only now that I have found the perfect space and time that slots nicely into my current schedule.
There are just so many benefits of doing yoga for children which include flexibility, balance, co-ordination, relaxation, concentration, well-being and confidence to name but a few. My classes will be a fun approach to yoga and all its benefits. The session will include some fun breathing techniques, yoga postures of course, partner poses (if the children are willing!), games, circle time and activities to promote mindful awareness and relaxation.
Children’s yoga is about fun with movement, developing body confidence and self-awareness and is a great way for them to keep fit, stretch and strengthen their bodies while enjoying themselves too. With all the pressure on kids these days at school and in competitive environments, this opportunity to engage in age-appropriate breathing, mindfulness and relaxation techniques will really stand them in good stead as they develop through school. It is also a non-competitive and safe environment.
I will run the class as a block of 5 weeks, initially, and these 5 classes will run consecutively from Friday 12th January 2018. The 5-week block will cost £25 (£5 per session) and I am running it as a “course” rather than on a drop-in basis so that there is consistency and continuity which children thrive on and so that the children attending have a chance to connect and feel comfortable with each other as opposed to changing who is there each week.
It will run for 45 minutes at Becket Sports Centre in Dartford from 6.00pm to 6.45pm and will be aimed at school aged-children from 4 to 11 years (reception to year 6). Places will be limited to approximately 14 children in order to allow for plenty of room for movement and so that I can keep a good eye on everyone. Incidentally if you have a child who is not yet at school you might want to consider my Samadhi Tots class.
