Namaste Kids in Kilndown

  1.  My name is Hayley Sanderson and after practising yoga for 8 years I became a children's instructor back in May 2014 with Yoga Bananas and in January 2015 I completed Cosmic Kids training. I am a mother of 2 and knew that is was something lacking in the area. My children use yoga poses regularly to help with niggles such as headaches, tummy aches and when they struggle to get to sleep so I know yoga can bring benefits.

    In this modern non stop world our children have little time to relax and when they do they struggle with slowing down, at the end of each yoga lesson after the fun and games we relax for a few minutes and overtime they learn how to relax!

    The various poses & stretches help maintain a child's natural flexibility which can be lost through sitting at desks & computers.

    Yoga improves posture by strengthening the back & abdominal muscles.

    I could go on but overall Yoga improves self confidence & promotes a positive body image.

    I run clubs within schools & preschools and also have my own classes in Benenden for KIDS & Kilndown for TOTS Kent. Booking is recommended, mats are provided.

    • Namaste Kids is pleased to announce another qualification - Teaching Children Meditation, Connected Kids Level 1. Namaste Tots classes have spaces Fridays In Kilndown to give it a try. Free trial classes available.

    This recommendation was made verbally by a parent speaking to the KalliKids team and confirmed in writing.

    • Ketta, Mum to Clara (5), Kent

      Clara goes to weekly term-time classes which are based around yoga poses, stretching and relaxing but with a focus on fun too. She absolutely loves it and all the children get on really well, it's also an inclusive class that caters for a wide age range. The poses have animal names and her favourite part is the relaxation where children lie in a circle on their mats with lavender bags on their eyes. It's not a serious yoga class but a great 'stealth' introduction to the philosophy of yoga. Clara is a normal 5 year old who can't sit still but she really looks forward to her class with Hayley each week!

      The kallikids reputation
    • Dawn, Mum to Frances (9). Staplehurst

      Namaste Kids yoga is fab for my daughter, Frances. I really like the nice chill out period Namaste Kids provides in a hectic week, giving Frances the opportunity for exercise which isn't frantic. Frances comes home and tells me how much she has enjoyed the class and shows me the exercises she has learnt. She really likes Hayley, the yoga teacher and the stories she tells to teach yoga movements to. Hayley is a mum to two girls herself. She is really bubbly nice, easy going and makes the classes fun!

      The kallikids reputation
    • Laura, Mum to Abigail (7), Cranbrook

      My daughter's favourite pastime is relaxing, for her Namaste Kids yoga is like a dream come true! I really like the fact that children are encouraged to be calm. The yoga teacher, Hayley is brilliant. She has taught Abigail some wonderful techniques for night time when she had some problems sleeping. Abigail has got such a lot from doing Namaste Kids. I wasn't really sure what to expect from children's yoga, but I have been so pleasantly surprised at how good it has been!

      The kallikids reputation
    • Tess mum of Madeline 9 and ruby 6

      Both my children love going to yoga Hayley really interacts with the children. I would highly recommend her classes. My children are more relaxed happy children and often use the techniques at home.
      A fun active class that will keep your children entertained.

    • Lauren, Mum of 2!

      My daughter loves Namaste Kids and is always talking about the stories and moves they have done that week. I have found the breathing techniques great when she's having a meltdown and seems to help calm her. Also the being calm and listening to instructions is great learning ready for school. I cannot recommend the yoga tots classes enough. Thank you Hayley!
