This class introduces yoga to young minds, using a fun, interactive and friendly approach to yoga poses and breathing techniques to help provide children with tools to help them relax, stay calm, recognise their emotions and also build physical strength, balance and flexibility.
Why not come along and try children’s yoga in Kettering, at the Ironstone Wellbeing Centre.
Children’s Yoga is a great way to encourage your children to take part in physical activity. Suitable for age 5-11 years. Yoga is a great form of exercise, which is designed to support both your mental and physical wellbeing. The poses of yoga increase strength, flexibility and coordination. All of which are essential in the development and growth of your child.
These classes are designed to be fun and engaging. Our children’s yoga teacher Charlotte incorporates age-appropriate games, story telling and creative names for poses within the class to ensure that the children are kept engaged at all times.
Our first course post covid is due to commence shortly. We will be running a free 45 minute taster session on the 3rd September at 4.15pm. The course will then run for 7 weeks commencing the following week.
Alongside our term-time course we also run half-term Children’s yoga and wellbeing workshops, which incorporate yoga and arts and crafts to encourage creativity and educate the children in recognising emotions and supporting their wellbeing.
We also run Family yoga classes where parents, grandparents and carers are welcome to attend. The perfect way for all the family to get involved. Why not come along and give Children’s yoga in Kettering at the Ironstone Wellbeing Centre a try!
Improved Confidence Levels – Regular practice, involving the mastering of new poses and challenges enables a child to build confidence. Weekly success and development will really leave your child feeling a great sense of achievement. The classes encourage sharing and over the weeks you will notice a difference in your child. Even our reception staff at the Ironstone Wellbeing Centre have noticed the growth in confidence levels of the children who regularly attend, especially in how they are able to interact and share with our staff the news on what they have been up to in class.
Improved Concentration – Amongst the many benefits of children’s yoga improved concentration levels is one that we all could benefit from. Teachers and Parents have noticed improvements in the ability for a child to focus and sustain attention after regular yoga practice. Behaviour is also likely to improve.
Improve Coordination and Balance – Yoga is a brilliant way of working on coordination and balance. The poses in yoga challenge the whole body. The fact that each pose is repeated on both sides of body allows us to work in symmetry. One side may be easier than the other, but practicing both sides will develop body coordination and will challenge and improve motor development in your child.
Focuses Your Mind – Yoga encourages a mindful state, helping you to feel relaxed and calm reducing stress levels. Learning techniques to help you calm are great for later in life when you have to sit exams or are agitated over something.
For now, due to Covid we will not be providing mats. You will therefore be required to bring your own.
Water – Hydration before, during and after class is key.
Currently due to Covid our changing facilities are unavailable, only toilets will be available.
We have onsite parking.
We offer this class in a course format which runs alongside school term times. Week 1 of this course will be a free taster (3rd Sep) followed by a 7 week course deal for £49.
