Yoga

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a way of life! It is a mind-body experience developed by moving the body into a sequence of yoga poses (asanas). During yoga we focus on our breathing (pranayama) in and out through the nose which calms the mind. Through developing yoga practice, along with relaxation and meditation, this then improves your way of life as you become more resilient, compassionate for others and have increased focus and concentration.

Benefits include improved:

Physical strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, metabolism, digestive system, circulation and general well-being.

Yoga for schools

Children’s yoga

Hourly sessions

I have been teaching yoga to children for 5 years. It improves their physical and emotional development.

2-7 years – Bringing literature and yoga together.

8-12 years – Bringing Mindfulness and yoga together.

I use a number of resources such as books, instruments, teddies, bubbles, scarves, pom poms, music and much more. The sessions are engaging and fun as we focus on breathing techniques (pranayama), yoga poses (asanas) and relaxation (savasana).

Benefits include improved:
Strength, posture, flexibility, stamina, balance, co-ordination, determination, focus, concentration, resilience, self-esteem, creativity and overall well-being.

‘My 3 year old daughter enjoyed Katie’s classes so much. Linking yoga with well-known stories (today was Goldilocks) was a great intro to the positions. She has already recreated the class for her Great Nan!! And can’t wait to be back next week. Thanks Katie!’

‘Absolutely amazing yoga teacher. Taught my daughter in her school. A brilliant teacher helps my daughter Hollie so much. Would recommend it to anyone and in my opinion everyone needs to try this, you will definitely go back.’

‘Amazing yoga and mindfulness teacher. Inspired my 9 year old daughter through a very difficult time and changed her outlook completely after attending her classes. Would recommend to anyone. All children should be given this opportunity.’

Yoga for teaching staff

I am a qualified Hatha yoga teacher and I’ve been practicing yoga personally for 7 years.

Teaching staff are under immense pressure to complete targets and planning which can cause anxiety and stress. Practicing yoga collaboratively, improves the morale of the school creating a calming and relaxed environment. ‘Little Sunshine Mindfulness and Yoga’ provide teaching staff with a calming, gentle yoga session to relax their busy mind, creating a positive mind set. We focus on yoga gestures (mudras), breathing techniques (pranayama), yoga poses (asanas) and relaxation (savasana).

Benefits include improved:
Physical strength, flexibility, stamina, balance, co-ordination, determination, focus, concentration, resilience, self-esteem, creativity and overall well-being.
