Yoga is great for children and teenagers alike (and adults too!). Exploring and learning about their bodies, how to breathe fully and learn to be calm no matter the storm, all done in a fun, safe and playful way.
- Yoga helps with better body awareness.
Learning how to move more freely and with greater ease and becoming strong and flexible, as well as improving balance.
- With yoga you learn how to breathe better.
Breathing deeply and fully we can bring peacefulness to our bodies whilst breath awareness can help us to be more focused.
- Yoga also teaches us how to quiet the mind.
When we practice yoga, we learn how to be still. This helps us to listen with attention and make good decisions.

Heartfelt Yoga & Meditation run Yoga Workshops throughout Essex and London for schools, charity organisations and festivals. Children will discover some of the benefits of yoga and how it can be fun, a great way to exercise, as well as providing strategies to deal with emotions such as anger and help calm the overactive mind. Teachers will discover that yoga is a great tool to help children be calm and ready to learn.
We aim to provide a fun and educational yoga and meditation workshop, which includes a craft activity to assist the children to understand what meditation is and why we meditate. Yoga will also build children’s confidence and self-esteem, as well as some of the important principles of respecting one another and how we work best as a team with support and kindness.

We can also facilitate a teacher relaxation and meditation session at the end of the school day to help the staff de-stress too!

Probably most suitable for children already in Primary School ages 4-11yrs (should you decide to bring a preschooler they will count as a child.)
All equipment, i.e. Mats, are provided, you are of course welcome to bring your own. Yoga doesn't need any special clothing just stretching comfortable cloths and yoga is done barefoot (or in socks if preferred.)
