Little children with yoga mats near colo

Kids Yoga

At Move Happy we're all about moving to support both body and mind. And now we're offering something for the little people in your lives too!

These classes, suitable for kids ages 6-10, include a combination of yoga postures, breath play, mindfulness practice and relaxation.

 

Tailored to help develop bodies and minds, classes are themed and allow children to explore their senses and imaginations in a non-competitive and fun environment.  

 

Benefits of Yoga for Kids


While the postures support physical development by increasing children’s flexibility and strength, breathing exercises encourage children to use their full lung capacity. 


Breathing exercises also give children techniques to increase energy levels as well as decrease anxiety or stress. They begin to see the connection between breath and mood, which encourages ownership of their emotions. Classes include group and partner poses to encourage positive interaction.

All yoga postures are inspired by the natural world around us, which  provide a great opportunity to introduce facts and ideas about plant life and the animal kingdom. 


Yoga will also allow children to develop scientific vocabulary, naming our bones and muscles.

 

Open communication is encouraged as well as opportunity for each child to share their thoughts, ideas or emotions.

Move Happy Kids Yoga is led by experienced teacher and educator Gale Hubbard.

As always, Move Happy Fitness and our instructors run sessions in line with all Government and Industry guidance related to COVID-19.

In offering these classes we recognise our duty to safeguard and promote children's welfare. Find our Child Protection Policy Statement here.
