Children's Yoga

Why is yoga so good for children?

Our children's classes, whether in school, at activity clubs or at our studio, are fun, creative and full of life. We encourage learning through exploration and help the children to develop stillness, focus and discipline of mind and body.

We approach teaching from a positive, non-competitive perspective and encourage children to challenge themselves, and build their own self-confidence rather than comparing themselves to others in the class.

For schools, we tailor our yoga teaching to meet the specific needs of your students. Yoga is an excellent way of broadening your school’s provision within the National Curriculum framework. We offer regular classes or one-off sessions, designed specifically to meet the needs of your group.
