I grew up in a wild, wonderful & large family. I love to work with & teach children! I trained 40 hr Accredited Children's Yoga teacher for ages 2-12. I am currently working with, BEAM & Stretch, and am also available for private Children's Yoga classes; a perfect weekend treat or Birthday party activity!
Typically I like to split my classes into ages, 2-5, 5-9 & 9-12. These are all slightly different lengths and styles depending on the age bracket but from 20-45 mins. I love to use warm up games and songs, to get everyone engaged and into their bodies!
The body of the class is structured around an interactive story that incorporates the yoga poses, I'll have outlined at the beginning of class. These are always fun with subtle theming and talking points for discussion afterwards.
Typically class ends with 5/10 mins relaxation, breathing or open talking about the themes. I love to use props like fluffy animals, breathing balls and all sorts to help children relate & engage.
