Yoga for children and teenagers

Little Yogis: A summer holiday yoga camp for children aged 4 – 9

TUESDAY 1/08/17 TO THURS 3/08/17 13:15-15:15 WITH ERIN
This yoga camp is for children who love to be physically challenged and mentally stimulated, but also want to have fun and make new friends along the way! It is a playful exploratory approach to yoga that builds on children’s’ own creativity.
Yoga is a wonderful way to increase children’s co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Using yoga, children can learn to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun and creative environment full of games, meditation, music, creative writing and journaling.

£15 per day or £40 for all three sessions.

And whilst your child is at the summer camp, on Tuesday you can come to…
