Iyengar Yoga for Kids – Special Workshops at the HIYC

Yoga is a wonderful tool to nurture children’s spiritual potential. At the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre yoga for kids workshops we maintain a quality and depth of teaching, whilst having fun and using play to make yoga enjoyable and accessible to children of all ages.

Why special yoga classes for children?

Yoga has many benefits for kids.

  • It develops awareness of body, mind and breath
  • Helps to focus a wondering mind, building concentration and attention span
  • Reduces hyperactivity providing tools for calming down and relaxation
  • Regulates energy levels
  • Can help to foster positive self image and increase confidence
  • Exercises, strengthens and lengthens different muscles in the body.
  • Encourages regularity of body clock: of eating, sleeping
  • Is a healthy and fun activity which can balance out “screen-time”, the pressures of school and family life
All these benefits of yoga for children are also beneficial to anyone of any age, but with kids yoga can help them with the ups and downs as they learn and grow. It can help to prepare them for effective learning in school awakening their fullest potential for creativity. It helps them to adapt to new situations and sensations with confidence and ease and will open the way to their spiritual growth.
Telling children to do things because they are good for them or telling them that yoga is good for them will not inspire the kids in the yoga class. Instead the teacher will create a safe and fun space for the children to use yoga asanas to explore and uncover their own truths. The Yoga teacher for children will act more as a yoga facilitator than a teacher. Yoga for Kids classes are directed in a spontaneous way, and the children and teacher will together create games using the props, climbing the bars, learning yoga asana sequences for children, and whatever is suitable for the ages of the children in class.

Yoga Asanas for Children

Many yoga poses are named from nature and children will have fun adopting the yoga poses of trees and flowers, animals and warriors and will feel the power of that which they imitate, such as roaring like a lion. The physical aspects to the yoga classes for kids promote alignment, balance and poise allowing tensions to be released which enables a free flow of energy and opening the space for full and bright expression of their life.

No prior Yoga experience is required.

Students who wish to book such a course for their children should request to the office or their Course teacher.
