Kids Yoga

Kid’s yoga differs from adult yoga, which is natural since children are not mini-adults. Imaginative play, joy and co-creation are basic elements. Showing children that yoga can be both enjoyable and fun and at the same time make them feel good physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Exploring movement, breath, stillness and meditation with open minds and giving space to children’s inherent curiosity and sense of wonder. It is a holistic practise and we want to give every child the opportunity to feel safe and to be able to express their unique essence.

What do we do?

Movement – breath – relaxation – meditation.

With playful movement, fun breathwork, simple meditation and calming relaxation the children are introduced to the wondrous world of yoga. We move, breathe, play, sing, relax, interact and explore together.

Classes:

Wednesdays at 16.30-17.30 (10-12 years) at Yogarummet Björkhagen, Halmstadsvägen  41.

Why is yoga good for children?

Yoga helps children release tension and stress. It offers tools for them to manage strong emotions and to self-regulate. It also helps develop body awareness, coordination and balance. The focus is on cooperation and the fact that there are no competitive elements helps boost self-esteem and expand self awareness and awareness of others.

Kids Yoga Teacher

Basic training

Welcome to what probably is one of the most playful, inspiring and innovative trainings there is when it comes to Kid’s Yoga. You will get a solid foundation in yoga plus a possibility to immerse yourself in how children’s natural curiosity and imagination can be sparked and cultivated.

Perhaps you have children of your own or grandchildren.
Perhaps you are a yoga teacher for adults or you just want to learn more about how to introduce children to the wondrous world of yoga in a fun and playful way.

The best way for kids to learn is while playing, moving, singing, creating and using their imagination so we integrate all that in the yoga. And the same goes for adults so you will get to experience that in the training. Communication and values are also important parts of the course. How can we communicate with children in a respectful and compassionate way. In a way that harmonizes with the notion of ahimsa, non-violence.
