Ensuring yoga is accessible to children is more vital today to counter stress and anxiety and poor postural habits. It is a positive balance to those actively engaged in sport, including gymnastics and dance as well as suitable as an alternative for those who aren’t very physically active.
Yoga for children and teenagers helps develop flexibility, strength, stamina and self confidence as well as a quieter mind.
I have enjoyed teaching children since 2013 and teach a variety of regular classes during term time, now on line as well as face-to-face again. I teach in a local primary school from years two to six.
Between February and June 2021, Iyengar Yoga (UK) I was part of an initiative which offered free classes for teenagers taught by certified and experienced teachers. Look out for future classes/events.
