Kids Yoga at One Heart creates a safe, fun, and nurturing space for children to be their vibrant, adventurous, wonder-filled, generous, inquisitive selves. The sessions are for 6-9 year olds and are based on a playful and skilful exploration of sensory-motor awareness, yoga postures, breath, sound, imagination, dance, visualisation, partner and group activities and age-appropriate meditation. All the practices enable children to share in the experience of growing into themselves. Yoga develops focus, curiosity, creativity, gentleness, and resilience.The sessions alternate between periods of movement and relative stillness. There are opportunities for expression, exploration and expansion through play, balanced with pausing in receptivity, reflection, and mindful awareness. Together we find ways to integrate developmental movement patterns, in the context of being in relationship with ourselves, others, and our surrounding environment. Together we investigate how we feel and how we respond to this, learning to listen to each other and encouraging an appreciation for the power of practice, presence, and compassion.
The sessions are inclusive and tailored to the needs of those who attend. Children aged 6-9 with all shades of abilities and needs are warmly welcomed, and everyone who participates in the session is valued as a key contributor and co-creator of the practice.
Parents/carers are asked to please arrive 2-3 minutes before the class to enable your child to settle in. Parents are asked to please leave the yoga studio space for the duration of the class. There are lovely cafes and peaceful gardens on site to enjoy. Please wait in the foyer at the end of the class.
