Chill Club – Yoga for ages 5 - 11 years (online)

Led by Carly Brown

Yoga sessions 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.

You will need one yoga mat and one blanket each.

Suitable for ages 5 - 11 years.

We want everyone to be safe while practising yoga at home so please ensure that all children are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear and that you have suitable space to move in and have cleared the space of any potential hazards.

About Carolingian Script

A pivotal script of great importance, Carolingian was developed during the late eighth century at Charlemagne’s scriptorium (Charles the Great, King of the Franks) in Tours, France.

It forms the basis for our modern minuscule characters, and has a round cursive flowing quality that makes it easy to read. This was one reason for its popularity throughout Europe, although a late arrival in England.

The style later gave way to the cursive Black Letter and more compressed Gothic script, but was then rediscovered in the fifteenth century by Poggio and Noccoli, from which developed the italic hands.

When reviving the calligraphy arts and crafts at the start of the 20th Century, Edward Johnston based his Foundation Hand on a tenth Century example of an Anglicised version of the script known as English Caroline Minuscule. The example chosen was the Ramsey Psalter, believed to have been written by scribes at Winchester and dating from 966.
