Kids and yoga
Kookaburra Yoga's kids classes introduce yoga and meditation to children in a fun, relaxing and accessible way. kids learn yoga through movement, songs, games, yoga breathing, guided meditations, yoga poems and songs, traditional yoga poses and art. For kids who get stressed, worried or can't sleep sometimes...there are yoga and breathing exercises which help them to feel calm no matter what!
Kids love the classes because they are fun and dynamic, as well relaxing, meditative and informative. They are taught various poses and techniques and we explain the benefits of doing them. Children learn important skills in the classes which will help see them through the challenging teenage years ahead.
On a deep level, children will learn to breathe deeply, transform negative thought patterns and responses, manage stress, enjoy good health and establish a spiritual context for life experiences. Learning yoga as a child provides a strong foundation for life.
Through the skills learnt in yoga classes, children learn to manage stress, be healthy, and most importantly have some control over their emotions, moods and behaviour. Yoga has been proven to strengthen the body, regulate moods and prevent illness, while meditation helps children concentrate better at school, display greater imagination, control moods and behavioural problems, and have a healthy, positive outlook on life.
