Kids Yoga Cornwall takes yoga into schools for workshops and clubs. We run children’s yoga classes on Saturdays at Breathe Health and Fitness in Truro. We take our sessions out and about to events and festivals. Kids Yoga Cornwall also offers Yoga Play Dates, Family Yoga and Yoga Birthday Parties.
The benefits of yoga for children are overwhelming. It boosts children’s confidence while minimising anxiety, stress and even depression. Yoga provides them with tools to manage everyday obstacles & become better problem solvers. Physically, yoga improves strength, balance and overall fitness.
Yoga for children is slightly different than yoga for adults. To keep the children engaged, yoga needs to be fun! We are able to keep the classes exciting while incorporating different yoga techniques such as breathing, meditation & poses in every class.
We utilise different medias throughout the class to keep it exciting for the children. They learn different yoga techniques through story-telling, books, songs, games and crafts. We use partner poses and sharing time to inspire mindfulness.
8+ Yoga is a bridge between childhood and adolescence. It helps kids understand what’s going on, gives them time to step back from the everyday, and helps them start to see themselves and their bodies better in the context of their new reality. We move towards a more adult style yoga as they mature physically and mentally, engaging with yoga on a deeper level. We look at topics children are studying at school, and issues for the age group like growing up. We include sequences and postures that are more typical of an adult yoga class.
Most importantly, in addition to Yoga being beneficial, it can be creative and fun!
