Yoga for Kids
As a non-competitive form of exercise, yoga gives children the physical benefits of traditional school sports in a safe and supportive environment while also teaching them valuable skills for relaxation and concentration. In this way, yoga educates the whole child.
Yoga can increase your child's flexibility, balance, strength and coordination, aiding healthy childhood development. It has also been shown to help children with disturbed sleeping patterns, bad posture, lethargy, obesity, asthma, and poor concentration.
The kids yoga courses taught by The Yoga Space are designed by Samantha Briatico who is an experienced and friendly yoga teacher. Samantha has a ‘Working With Children Check’ and also teachs in primary and high-schools.
Classes run for approximately 45 minutes. Parents are asked to drop their children off and either wait outside (where you can see the class from a distance) or you might like to grab a coffee from a nearby cafe. If you would like to join the class you are welcome, try be an active participant to model enjoyment of the class to your child.
