Happy, calm and connected

Yoganic yoga classes are perfect for the whole family from babies to teens.

Classes

Yoga for Rollers, Crawlers, Creepers and Walkers

Enjoy yoga with your mobile baby.

While you’re stretching, and strengthening your body, your little one may be clinging to you like a koala, climbing on you like a play gym, visiting other mama’s mats, making friends or exploring the room.

After a few classes your baby has confidence to wander further from you bathed in the security that you’re at arm’s reach.

Just like in mamahood, we go with the flow in this class so when the little ones want to play, we do baby yoga moves together accompanied by songs.

Doing yoga in view of your child teaches them the importance of self- care and relaxation. You learn how to integrate yoga into your day with your children instead of than trying to find the elusive quiet moments to do yoga on your own.

Yoga for Mindfulness for Kids: 5- 8 years

These fun, active and calming classes teach mindfulness in a creative, loving and non-competitive way. Through physical practice, yoga nurtures flexibility and freedom of movement and helps to build healthy bodies and minds.

Yoga also:

  • improves your child’s concentration and self-confidence
  • helps them feel balanced
  • recharges their immune system
  • improves their quality of sleep

Most importantly, yoga provides kids with a space to just ‘be’ and develop their radiant little selves while cultivating compassion.  They then relate to friends and family in the same way. What a gift to the world.

Yoga and Mindfulness for Teens: 13+

So many changes take place in your teens life at this age.  Their bodies, identity, friends and world view.  Yoga supports them in this transition and calms restless minds, brings balance to their stressful life and fosters self-awareness.

Undo the effects of sitting at a desk using devices by stretching tight hamstrings, relieving stress in neck and shoulders and moving the whole body.
