A 4 week yoga course designed for primary school aged children.
We will cover lots of different yoga poses in a fun and gentle way. Using our imaginations, we will look at how nature and wildlife inspires many yoga poses and exercises, lion breath for courage, tree pose for strength, cat pose for flexibility for example.
We will then take a short savasana (blanket time) to classical piano music. This resting time allows all the work and play to settle into the children’s bodies and brains. Each session will finish with a poem or reading.
Fri 3 Jul - additional information
This week we will be looking at some balancing poses and covering a beautiful meditation based on the book by Thich Nhat Hanh called A Handful of Quiet, happiness in four pebbles. You will need 4 small items from the natural world, ideally pebbles, stones, shells etc.
