Children & Family Yoga

Bringing yoga to children has been a goal for me from the beginning of my yoga journey. Gandhi said it best: “If you want to reach real peace in this world, we should start educating children.”

Yoga has enormous benefits for them. It can help them:

  • Cope with stress more effectively
  • Relax and sleep better
  • Increase their self-esteem and confidence
  • Improve their attention span
  • Learn breathing techniques that increase energy and decrease anxiety
  • Learn relaxation and stress management techniques for school and at home
  • Improve their motor skills

Regular yoga practice also provides effective help for learning disorders, hyperactivity and stress.

The classes are inter-curricular and, through movements, games and breathing stimulate all areas of a child’s development:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

Most of all, yoga for children is a lot of FUN!

I currently teach in schools and nurseries in Ashford. If you work in a school and are interested in bringing yoga to your students, please contact me to discuss this further.

I also run private classes for children and families.
