Yoga is a wonderful way for children to increase awareness of themselves, others, and the world. Kids’ yoga classes are a fun way to engage a child’s natural, boundless energy whilst encouraging self-expression, imaginative play and instilling valuable lessons in positive thinking.
Urban Yoga is delighted to present a new kids course designed to introduce yoga to kids aged 5-8 years. Each class is alive with magical journeys, where we meet animals, fly a plane, surf the sea, or grow into a tree – all in the form of dynamic yoga poses that improve flexibility, strength and body awareness. Music, games, props, storytelling, relaxation, visualisation, mandala colouring, meditation and more will keep kids involved and focused while teaching them to relax, stretch and energise while having fun. Research shows that when we are having fun, our brains are more open to learning. The same goes for kids!
Introducing your children to yoga at an early age can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits that are foundational building blocks for becoming a resilient teenager and thriving adult.
