Types of classes
Blue Whale Kids Yoga offers four types of classes to cater for different age groups:
Junior | Primary | Teens | Family Yoga
Junior (3 to 5 yrs):
For younger children, yoga is taught in a fun and a relaxed way through music, rhyme, and yoga stories.
Primary (6 to 10 yrs):
For this age group, classes are a mix of drama, music, and yoga. Classes are still light-hearted and fun and include creative activities, games, and partner yoga. Children also learn yoga more deeply in these classes and are encouraged to learn and remember different poses and sequences.
Teens (11 to 15 yrs):
This older age group enjoys a more formal yoga class, and students are challenged to persevere and master different poses. Students are taught about the principles of yoga and are given tools to cope with stress and anxiety through teen-appropriate meditation and mindfulness exercises. These classes also include some fun drama-type games and partner yoga activities.
Family Yoga (parents & children):
This is a wonderful way for parents and kids to connect with each other and share their love (or discovery!) of yoga together.
What are the benefits of yoga and meditation for kids?
Through conscious movement and asana practice, children and teenagers can develop their physical strength, coordination, balance, and concentration. Yoga can also improve their confidence and self-esteem, as they discover all of the amazing things their bodies can do. Through mindfulness and meditation, children can relax and calm their busy minds. Carefully planned exercises can help them better understand their emotions, develop empathy, and cope with stress and anxiety.
