Children’s after school yoga club for age 8-10 years
In these classes we will delve into the world of yoga in a fun and supportive way through the use of storytelling, dance, music and games. Children will learn yoga sequences and breathing techniques to help enhance the strength and flexibility of both their bodies and minds.
Yoga is essentially about going within and connecting with oneself using the breath and yoga postures. It helps us to ground and develops awareness of body, breath, emotions/feelings and thoughts. It helps us calm down and find balance and health in our bodies. During a class this is combined with dance inspired movement and games providing the added opportunity for creative self-expression and connecting with others. This helps children to feel free and expansive with their body movements and emotional expression as well as feeling the joy, excitement and love of being part of the whole group.
These classes aim to provide children with the tools, time and space to draw their attention away from any pressures or stress they may have in their lives. Hearing a story, a few deep breaths, doing yoga and movement to reconnect the body/mind and release tension, a space to connect, share and have fun and also moments of quiet introspection, are a wonderful way to reset the nervous system to feel revitalized, calm and focused.
