Little Yoga

What is Kid's Yoga?

Kid’s yoga is not religious! ‘The word “YOGA” means to unite, the body and mind in harmony. 

Kid’s yoga and mindful classes aim to teach children to be able to relax, be calm and deal with emotions and navigate through lives challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at a young age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with physical activity. Mindful kid’s yoga is non-competitive which is really important in the world we live in today.

Kid’s yoga is fun and creative. Children exercise, play and are able to make an easy connection with their inner self and the natural world around them.
“A child’s yoga practice is the rare opportunity to experience play and focus without worrying about being wrong”, Shana Mayerson (founder of kid’s yoga in California USA)

How We Do It

We believe that kids are kids, so let them be….

Classes are fun, noisy and creative. We use stories, props, music and our imagination through play and different yoga poses.

Creative yoga is specifically designed to spark their imagination and get kids to be able to express and cope with their feelings.

Lesson Structure

Breathing Exercises

Assist kids to concentrate, focus and reduce stress. We use props and play in order to get them to focus and breathe. Most times they don’t realise how much breathing they are doing while playing.

Yoga Poses

A variety of animal kid’s yoga poses from A- Z. Story time or an adventure really sparks their imagination during this aspect of the lesson. We read a story or go on an adventure, during which we role play characters and animals in the story through yoga poses. Creative play is expressed when children use familiar materials in a new or unusual way and when they engage in role playing.

Mindful Meditation and Relaxation

Assists and teaches children to be still and in the present moment.

Mandala Colouring

Offers a unique and fun way to get kids to be still and in the moment, part of our relaxation process. Mandala means 'circular' and offers balance of visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony`. Although there are other shapes within a mandala the basic nature of it is circular.

Positive Affirmations

Kids need to hear positive words. Sometime we get caught up in our busy lifestyle and this is not possible all the time. Positive affirmations are positive things we say to ourselves. We repeat three positive affirmations at the end of each lesson.

Classes are suitable for kids ages 3 to 8 years old.
