The wise yogi’s from ancient India were like children. They were interested in many things and looked carefully at nature and the world around them. They learned about the stars, the sun, the moon, the mountains, about wild animals and small insects. A lot of the yoga postures are based on those observations!
Children, like adults, live a life, mainly through school, dominated by intellectual development - certainly once they begin school. Yoga allows them to retain natural balance between their physical and mental growth journeys. The greatest gift to a young child is a sense of their Higher Self, and yoga can help to foster this sense.
In our yoga classes and workshops for children we let them experience the spirit of yoga in a fun but serious way, through postures and games with creativity and imagination.This helps the development of the child and it is also lots of fun for them!
Some postures make you strong inside, other exercises help when you feel angry or nervous and some practices increase your energy or make you feel calm and relaxt! This means yoga is very useful in daily life. The classes are suitable for children between 4 and 11 years old.
The workshop will take 2 hours and is suitable for 6 to 8 kids, between 4 and 11 years old. Costs 85 euros. Great idea for a childs birthday party?
Shower of light
Close your eyes, be very still and imagine you are standing under a shower of light. Thousends of tiny droplets of light are raining over you. Your whole body is slowly covered in these beautiful droplets of light, like tiny stars. This shower makes you feel very calm, happy and peaceful.
'If I had my child to raise over again,
I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.
I'd do less correcting, and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less, and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I'd run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging, and less tugging.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd teach less about the love of power,
And more about the power of love.'
