Children love moving their bodies, and yoga is a great way for them to have fun and explore their growing capacities. We're excited to bring new Kids' Yoga courses to Healium, right in the heart of the Wellington CBD!
In these classes children ages 3 to 5 will learn a number of basic yoga poses, work together in pairs and as a group, and develop an increased awareness of their bodies.
Sessions run 2.15-3.15 pm on Tuesdays, with yoga practice starting at 2.30 and ending at 3.00. Parents or caregivers attend with their children.
Kids' Yoga at Healium is led by yoga instructor, early-childhood educator and mother Isa Pike, running in terms in line with the school schedule:
Term 4, session A: 23 October to 20 November;
Term 4, session B: 27 November to 18 December.
You'll help us support local children's education too! Kids' Yoga at Healium supports the Wellington City Rudolf Steiner Kindergarten and the Wilton Playcentre. For each student per class Healium will contribute $1 to these organisations.
Each class is limited to 15 children (each with a parent or caregiver). Registration required - email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 04 499 0334.
From the teacher, Isa Pike: "The magical time of childhood has been my chosen world since my early teens. I went from babysitting to nannying to primary teaching and then back to nannying. Now I have a child of my own and focus on and enjoy being a mother. I also love spending time with the children at the Playcentre. I've been doing yoga for about 15 years and am excited to bring my passions together in these classes!"
