Childrens' Yoga

Inspire children to become aware of the value of physical and mental health, offering them wellbeing tools for a life.

Let's normalise big feelings, invite children to understand and process emotions through accessible breathing, movement and restorative rest tools that Yoga offers.

Trauma effects how we think, feel and behave. It can impair learning, memory, attention and critical thinking.

 

Teaching through a trauma informed lens, and therefore with sensitivity to the experience of each individual, I focus on offering support over sanctions, with the understanding that ‘behaviour’ is a communication tool. There are no bad children, just children who have experienced difficult things, without the resources to process these big feelings.

 

Trauma Informed Children’s Yoga offers these mind-body resources help regulate emotions and build internal resources.

Yoga is fantastic because it can... 

  • Increase physical literacy - strength, balance, co-ordination and mobility

  • Empower children to learn self-soothing, calming breathing tools

  • Improve posture, supporting a long and flexible spine

  • Offer mental health awareness and mindfulness tools

  • Develop positive self-awareness, awareness of others 

  • Create healthy receptive brains ready for the classroom

  • Encourage generosity, compassion and respect

  • Offer a non-competitive, accessible environment for all

  • Encourage positive communication and team work

  • Encourage creativity, self expression and fun

  • Help us recognise feelings / emotions within the body

  • Build inner strength and resilience

  • Develop focus and concentration

  • Develop sensory awareness

  • Teach self-care

  • Be fun!

Thank you so much for our Yoga Day during Sports Week. Every year group and the staff loved the games, learning the yoga poses and really enjoyed the relaxation stories. 

The children have followed up by doing more yoga in class and using techniques to focus on their calm breathing. In the future, we would love to have you back at The Meadows.

I wanted to pass on how much I think our children have benefitted from having your yoga sessions this year. Not just the yoga but your presence with them is so calming and reassuring. This was noticed on our Raising Attainment visit last term & the School Council also talked about the benefits it brings of ‘being calm, feeling peaceful and resting worries!’. So thank you and we hope to work with you again next year.

Wow!  What a relaxing and energising break from our busy lives.  Carolyn created a calming space for both adults and children to concentrate on their bodies, senses and mind. 

All children engaged fully in the sessions as they were fun, age appropriate and accessible to all.  Thank you for a great yoga workshop day

I liked the bit where we did the dancing, I did a funny wiggle dance and laughed

 
I liked it when we lay down waiting for the butterfly to land, it was
quiet and relaxing
