I've taught a range of children's sports and exercise classes in the past, and run children's parties - so I'm excited to now be able to offer Family yoga events, School and after school club sessions and Yoga parties.
Yoga can be of benefit to children in so many ways. My Family yoga sessions combine fun, games, yoga poses, partner poses and mindful chill out exercises for the whole family. School sessions can be tailored to National Curriculum themes. For younger children the focus will be on fun and exploration whilst older children will learn through whole group, small group and partner work. All sessions will help with focus, strength, flexibility and balance. The sessions will also encourage children and adults to explore their own bodies, make up poses, learn new facts, laugh, dance and smile.
Part of the Active Newham programme - hope to be back next year after a successful programme at Keir Hardie Recreation Ground
In these free drop in sessions, participation in each activity is optional for both children and adults, although adults are encouraged to join in as much as they can and supervise their children in partner activities and yoga games.
The sessions are aimed at age 5-11 although younger and older children are welcome to join in.
You can now book a children's yoga party at Newham City Farm on a Saturday afternoon (subject to availability).
Choose a half hour add on session to a Farm party for just £50, or book a whole hour for £100 (includes a yoga kids birthday gift, mandala or farm colouring sheets and stickers for all guests).
Maximum 16 children aged 7+, grown ups and younger children welcome to watch (Adult supervision is required).
Choose a theme from Farmyard yoga, Circus yoga or World explorer. Learn poses such as warrior, dancer, archer, cow, lion and dog along with fun filled facts. Make a special yoga birthday cake and finish with our mindfulness treat with the option of 'chocolate mindfulness', 'love hearts' 'flower power' or 'dinosaurs and unicorns'.
