Yoga for Kids
Yoga is not limited by age or ability. The key to the practice of yoga is awareness and intention. If you are aware of your body and have the intention of paying attention to the breath – you are beginning to practice of yoga.
My vision is to bring this kind of awareness to as many people as possible, from all walks of life. I would love to see yoga in every classroom and care home. It is truly inspiring to hear that people are helping to heal their physical, mental and spiritual ailments with yoga more and more.
I have been teaching yoga to children for several years. I have taught under 5's (with their parents/carer's of course! - see the pictures below), family yoga classes, and I also volunteered at Talley School in Wales for a year teaching both infants and juniors. I am currently teaching at Ysgol Y Dderi, initially with the teachers after school, and now one-to-one sessions with pupils who find the school environment challenging. The classes tell a story, with yoga poses intertwined, encouraging playful exploration and refining concentration, confidence and creativity.
Feedback from some of the children at Talley School.
"It was good because it was fun"
"It was fun and relaxing for your body"
