Historically, yoga is one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy, but has become a generic term for physical, mental and spiritual practices with origins in ancient India. In the last 50 years or so, yoga has been adapted in the West as form of exercise and stress reduction with spiritual emphasis depending on the class.

Yoga, as a form of exercising, involves assuming various positions that benefit the body in different areas. The complexity of these positions varies greatly from the ‘Cobra’ (lying on the floor with palms flat on the floor and chest raised) to the ‘Crane’ (palms flat on the floor supporting the body, with legs off the floor and tucked under the chest!)

Children’s yoga classes often involve the parents as well so it’s a great way for you and your child to exercise, or just have fun, together! Yoga can be done at all ages and can be easily practised at home in between classes. If your child needs some light, non-competitive exercise, a way to relax or just somewhere to meet and have fun with others their age then yoga could be the answer.
