WHAT: Introduce your children to the joy and benefits of yoga at free outdoor workshops during July and you may well be giving them a gift for life. Yoga for children is a fun way for our young friends to develop important skills, in an environment where competition is absent. From a very young age, children deal with pressure at school, and with the stress of success in sports and extracurricular activities. Yoga can be an extremely effective tool to help them ease this pressure.
The yoga lesson takes place without judgment and the perfect execution of each yoga pose by the children is not the goal. In an environment of encouragement, children develop their motor, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Through an approach that is child-centered and utilizes play, children learn to control their bodies, their breath, their thoughts and how to relax. At the same time, they will improve their flexibility and confidence. Suitable for children aged between 4-12.
WHEN: Saturdays in July from 7-8pm.
