YogaAt Your School - Yoga For Children in London

Over 20% of schools in the UK now offer Yoga, according to the Department of Education. Our own experience informs us that amongst London private schools this figure is closer to 40 or 50%.

If you are interested in Yoga for kids we can offer you two options. You can visit our yoga studio, Yoga West, in West London which has a weekly kids yoga class on Wednesday afternoon. For more information click here. Alternatively we can create a yoga program for you at your school or home.

There is a wealth of research on the benefits of yoga and meditation for young people. This includes its impact on development of young minds, physical development and its impact on relaxation and calmness. They include:

Physical

  • Overall muscular strength and tone are increased
  • Aids in digestion and elimination
  • Improves flexibility
  • Strengthens “core”
  • Builds balance and coordination.

Mental

  • Develops concentration and focus
  • Improves memory.

Emotional

  • Encourages calmness
  • Promotes self awareness and control.

Social

  • Boosts confidence
  • Yoga instructors often act as informal role model for older pupils.

 

When we work with you to set up the program, we spend as much time as required to structure a yoga program that best supports your pupils wellbeing. We then work with you and your pupils after we have started a program to ensure it evolves with them.

All our schools instructors are fully-qualified, experienced, insured, vetted and CRB’d. We send you a copy of the instructor’s information including their CRB well in advance of the classes and also make available her details to you, should you wish to undertake your own CRB check.

We employ specialists who work with younger children, teenagers and special need students. Classes in senior schools are often quite similar to adult classes. Junior and infant classes are typically quite different. For an example of a class outline for 5-8 year olds please click: here.

The logistics are simple. We’ll organise all the equipment. For younger children materials include, mats, sleeping masks, small bean bags and music to be played at some points during each class. For older children it is mats, blocks and straps. We typically invoice schools on a termly basis. We can turn almost any classroom into a yoga studio. Children typically undertake yoga in their PE kit but can also undertake yoga dressed in their school uniform.

We’d love to chat further.
