”Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” ~ Aristotle
Yoga feeds the expansive imagination of a preschooler. Exploring the world through yoga stories encourages this age group to build awareness of who they are and how they relate to the world around them.
Inner Child Yoga partners with preschools and childcare centres to run ten week yoga programs. Each program follows a specific syllabus which blends both education and fun. Over the course of the program children learn yoga and mindfulness exercises and techniques that they can take with them off the mat and into everyday life. All programs are mapped to the Early Years Learning Framework and complement the Be You framework. Classes are run within the centres and all equipment is provided.
During the 30 minute classes the children complete breathing exercises, adapted Hatha yoga poses, yoga therapy movements, mindfulness activities, yoga games, imaginative play, music, songs, relaxations, reflections and affirmations. Don’t be surprised if your little one goes home singing one of our songs.
