We introduce children to meditation and relaxation                                                                   tools they can practice and use for their whole life. Suitable for kids with no yoga                                                                           experience (see enrolments for bookings).


mindful kids:

 

Yoga for kids 5 -8 years.  These are fun, active and calming classes which teach mindfulness in a creative and non-competitive way. Through physical practice, yoga nurtures flexibility and freedom of movement and helps to build healthy bodies and minds.  Most importantly, yoga provides kids with a space to just ‘be’ and develop their radiant little selves while cultivating compassion. They then relate to friends and family in the same way. What a gift to the world.
