Connecting young children with yoga through imaginative play encourages kids to positively connect with their bodies and minds whilst developing physical literacy and nurturing wellbeing.
Kids yoga not only develops strength, mobility, balance and coordination, but yoga also supports wellbeing through emotional and social development in a wide variety of ways. Accessible to all, no right or wrong, kids yoga offers opportunity for every child in the room to be seen and feel empowered by being their awesome selves.

dance and laughed.''

Incorporating fun props, sound makers and a wide variety of group games, I encourage children to explore yoga through play in a non competitive environment. Yoga poses and mindfulness activities are taught through familiar games such as Yoga Maths, Mirroring, Magic Bag, and many many more, developing creative thinking and self expression whilst also nurturing wellbeing.
Benefits of Kids Yoga include the development of:
Gross motor skills such as coordination & balance
Strength & physical mobility
Concentration & focus
Communication & team work
Understanding of breathing as a calming tool
'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 day.'

If you are a Primary School in Bristol I would love to discuss how I can help you nurture your children's wellbeing. My 30 minute sessions work well as weekly classes for any year group during the school day, however one day workshops, lunchtime clubs, enrichment weeks (or any other ideas you have!), are all options too.
Please get in touch to discuss if you are a Primary School and would like to find out more.
