About Yoga for Kids:

Yoga for kids is great for soothing and stretching young bodies and minds. Come and explore yoga postures, breathing techniques and deep relaxation in a non-competitive and fun environment.

These classes are based on my training with Jo Manuel, Founder of The Special Yoga Centre in London. Children of all ages are catered for with sensitivity and good humour, and given a safe and friendly space to explore their understanding of their bodies, emotions and thoughts about life.

Suitable for:

Children aged 4 +

Children with learning developmental needs are also encouraged to attend.

1-2-1 Children’s Yoga Therapy, Family Yoga classes and Group sessions for Youth Clubs, Brownies, Girl Guides, Scouts, Venturers, Children and Teens with disabilities are also available.
