Children’s Yoga

I have been involved with The Hive pre-school and The Primary Schools in Aveton Gifford and Salcombe for a number of years and have developed yoga classes for children between 3 – 11 years.
The classes involve playing games, story telling and learning yoga exercises.

Steve has formed a wonderful relationship with the children at pre-school during our fortnightly yoga sessions. The children often tell Steve their news when we all sit down on the mats. He is calm and reassuring, supporting confidence and self esteem and is flexible to work with each child's personality valuing their thoughts by  sharing them with the group.
>In a fun way the children learn to co ordinate and balance movements and postures adapting them in imaginative ways such as pretending to be frogs, dinosaurs, or a Jack-in- box. Their interest is sustained through listening to the children's own ideas  and developing concepts further.  He encourages participation and celebrates small achievements so that every child is involved. The sessions also help to develop listening and following instructions as well as  self awareness.
