Yoga is non-competitive
A challenging and dynamic class where yoga is taught in a fun way.
Self-awareness is emphasised and children are encouraged to focus on their own potential and abilities, working at their own pace and level, gradually moving onto more challenging postures. In this way not only do they, through the practice of Yoga, develop concentration, physical and mental strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, improve their posture and breathing, but also develop greater confidence in themselves as they become aware of their own unlimited potential and ability to succeed.
Some of the postures are quite challenging and require strength of mind and body, good balance, flexibility, focus and the will and desire to achieve better results each time.
With regular practice children develop balance & co-ordination, mind/body strength & flexibility, concentration & memory, relaxation & self-confidence, better breathing & correct posture, Yoga nourishes their imagination & creativity.
