Children's and Young People's Yoga

For Children and Family Yoga Classes we recommend 20 - 30 minutes classes depending on the age of your child or children 

Research has identified that children and young people can suffer from stress and depression due to a number of factors some of which are listed below:

  • Developmental changes
  • Thoughts, feelings, speech expression
  • Family relationships and events
  • Medical conditions

Other factors are related to our current Western Lifestyle for example:

  • Lack of physical activity
  • Lack of Child’s creative imagniative play
  • Social media and networking
  • Limited and appropriate supportive community networks
  • Stress and Anxiety 

The main differences between Adult and Children Yoga Classes:

  1. Children’s Yoga Classes are fun, noisy, dynamic and spontaneous!
  2. Children yoga teachers guides the class classes that are child-focused 
  3. Children are encouraged to work together with a collaborative supportive, non-judgemental group helping them to develop and strengthen friendships.
  4. Children are encouraged to participate in a non-competitive physical activity enabling them to achieve their own goals whilst working within their own abilities, helping to improve fine and gross motor movement and co-ordination as well as improving flexibility and strength.

The benefits of Children Yoga in brief:

Yoga supports children’s personal and social development teaching them positive values and how to cope positively with the pressures of today’s modern lifestyle.

Research studies have identified that children and young people who practice yoga have fewer disciplinary problems within school and gain higher grades.
