Yoga for Children

Yoga for Children

.

Louise teaches yoga with compassion, encouragement and mindfulness. During Children’s yoga with Louise the focus is mainly on Hatha Yoga or Physical Yoga and is delivered in a fun manner using the medium of  story-telling, adventures and games. During classes children will explore breathing techniques, physical Asana poses, partner work, singing, artwork and relaxations.  They are fun, non-competitive and help kids to build self-esteem and become aware of their body through movement and stillness.

In an increasingly busy and pressured world enabling children to learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at an early age builds self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that’s noncompetitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion—instead of opposition—is a great gift to give our children.
