Monday 15th April 9.30am until 10.45am Green Hammerton village hall FREE COME AND TRY ……
I am so exited to be able to offer this one-off session during the Easter break for all the family. This session will continue on from my Family Yoga classes last Summer, so it is both suitable for those that attended last year and for those that are new to these sessions.
In a world that can seem busy and demanding to adults, can often to our young ones be stressful and intimidating which can leave children feeling anxious, confused and lost. Not having the words or knowledge to express themselves, children’s behaviour can often be the only outlet to express their emotions. This can be very confusing for parents as they try to provide for and understand their children.
The ancient wisdom of yoga has been around for thousands of years and can be used to help us unite our body and mind to live a balanced life whatever our age. Doing this practice as a family strengthens our connections sometimes more powerful than words and opens up our understanding of each other and the world in which we live.
The session will include:
- Yoga postures to help the body function effectively.
- Breathing techniques to calm the nervous system
- The benefits of ‘grounding’
- Relaxation – taking advantage of the benefits to restore, heal and re-balance the body and mind.
- Sitting still – ‘it is in the doing nothing that we can do everything.’
The session will generally have a sense of free flow allowing children to feel at ease. So if your child wishes to explore their environment that is fine – 1¼ hours can be a long time for a little one. Children will look to the parent for guidance and if the parent can stay calm and reassuring the child will return to their mat. There is no age restrictions for children (or adults) but please think carefully whether your child will benefit from this session.
Please let me know if you wish to come along (Please email or via facebook email@example.com)
What do I need – if you have a yoga mat please bring it along – there are some available. Wear comfortable clothing and bring some water to drink. No need for special footwear as the session can be done in bare feet.
