Yoga for Children

We teach yoga at childcare centres, in fun, age-appropriate classes designed for children aged 1 to 5 years.

The classes are fantastic for flexibility and strength, learning relaxation skills, posture, concentration, coordination, body awareness, self-confidence, self-esteem and establishing excellent physical and mental health. Classes include yoga games and partnering activities and are taught by a fully certified Yoga Teacher specialising in Kids & Family Yoga.

Our classes cover:

  • Breathing exercises and movement to weekly themes
  • Yoga to stories like the Hungry Caterpillar and the Lion King
  • We also theme around some beautiful yoga books and placement yoga cards that the kids get to choose their own poses

Benefits of yoga for little ones

  • Increases their fitness & flexibility, strength & balance
  • Improves coordination & body awareness
  • Develops children’s concentration and ability to focus
  • Helps them learn to manage stress better and calm themselves when needed
  • The focus on connecting mind, body and spirit starts the journey of leading a healthy lifestyle, learning that being healthy is about taking care of our minds not just our bodies
  • Our classes help children with emotional support, coregulation, self-compassion and inclusion

Practicing yoga in childcare centres and schools has been shown to help children make better food choices and engage in more physical activity than children who do not do yoga, making yoga an important tool to help deal with increasing levels of obesity among children in Australia.

Yoga practice has been shown to help reduce depression and anxiety in children and encourages a healthy, strong, positive body image. Children love discovering all the amazing things their bodies can do and enjoy the play side of the yoga games especially.
