Did you know that in many countries yoga classes are apart of school education? It is an ideal movement for all children.
This class is specifically tailored to children’s abilities. It is carried in a friendly and playful atmosphere. Children will find what they enjoy – creating, playing fairy tales, trying out diverse, tailor-made positions that are inspired by nature and animals. Children will experience what it is like to be a mountain, a tree, a cat, a butterfly, a monkey, a lion or a cobra. Thanks to this projection, yoga also has a positive effect on their imagination. Some classes contain even drawing and singing.
What does the class look like?
In this class, we also practice breathing exercises, thanks to which children learn to breathe properly and consequently maintain correct posture, not only during yoga classes. Every class is different and all activities are playful and fun. There’s also a bit of relaxation. Relaxation is guided by a fairy tale, various affirmations, we play silence games, children learn to listen to their heartbeat, listen to their breath and listen to themselves.
Your children will love yoga because there is no room for competition in these classes. There are no winners or losers. What is important is to have a pleasant playful exercise and find a path to themselves
The classes are suitable for children from 4 to 9 years. Even with children, however, age is just a number and each child is unique 🙂. So no matter what age he or she is, if they have a desire to experience yoga, the door is open.
