CHILDRENS CLASSES

These 90 min sessions introduce children to Iyengar yoga.  The emphasis is on fun; bendy, upside down fun!

Yoga can really help children develop confidence, improve concentration skills as well as improving posture.  In the sessions we practice yoga poses for approximately 60 mins and then have a short fruit snack break.  The remainder of the session is usually craft-based and will re-inforce the learning from the poses we have covered.  Parents are welcome to stay until your child settles but you will be asked to join in !

 

NEXT SESSION : TBC DUE TO COVID-19

£10 PER CHILD (including fruit snack and craft materials)

.....you will see the world in a new way..................................and meet new friends!

YOGA TIME TRAVEL - 29TH JUNE 

We made our own yogic time machine (pictured below left) and travelled backwards and forwards through time...we think the dials must have been a bit dodgy...

and we discovered when yoga first began.  We put together a time-line of when the important yogic texts were written (such as Patanjali's yoga sutras, the

Pradipika and BKS Iyengar's Light on Yoga) and put them into context with other important dates in history...like the rise of the dinousaurs (roar!) and Viking invasions (grrrrr!).  After a snack of fruit we made a yogic clock to take home. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE TREE OF YOGA - 17TH APRIL

We puts lots of yoga poses in a hat and everyone took turns to pick one, we then all did the pose together.

We then chose where on the tree the pose should be pinned. Our yoga tree was covered with the poses at the end of the class.  After our well earned fruit snack

we made handy reminder cards of our favourite pose with the Sanskrit name and the English translation which we took home.   Here's us upside-down in Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulderstand) and a close up picture of our tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The great balancing act Sunday 13th March

"STEP WITH CARE & GREAT TACT AND REMEMBER LIFE'S A GREAT BALANCING ACT" DR SEUSS

We explored all the various places we could balance and pretty much covered the body from head to toe.  The hardest was balancing on our

belly button but we had fun trying.

 

After fruit snack (there were strawberries, yay!) we decorated a card cutout of a person and then chose where they could best balance from.  Here are the results.....

We cut the cake all together!
