5-10 year olds
Fun, creative classes designed to stimulate children’s powers of imagination, maintain their natural flexibility and teach them to breathe correctly.
It’s all too easy to forget how hectic children’s lives can be, what with school, homework, extra lessons and sporting activities to fit in. And when added stress, from problems at home or bullying at school, occur, a child can suffer greatly, often in silence.
While music, art or sport can sometimes help relieve stress, it’s not as well-known that practising yoga can bring enormous benefits to a child. Chrissie offers classes to children aged 3 to 7 years.
Chrissie teaches children in after school clubs in primary and prep schools, and in nurseries during the school day.
Using traditional yoga postures, breathing & relaxation techniques, children are led into exciting adventures and magical places – the classes are fun, & combine songs, games and stories. The children are always the stars of the story!!
Some of the overall benefits to the children are improved concentration levels, better sleep patterns, greater self-esteem, and a stronger immune system.
Breathing exercises improve concentration and energy levels
Relaxation techniques clear the mind, allowing for better memory retention
Postures help recharge a weak immune system and strengthen the core, stabilising muscles in the abdomen and back.
Posture work also helps tone the body and reduce obesity, maintaining a child’s natural flexibility which can start to shut down from an early age.
Chrissie teaches throughout Suffolk and Cambridgeshire – contact her for more information on classes or to enquire about starting a new class in your area.
