Private/Semi-Private Yoga Sessions for Kids
Experts agree that anxiety is on the rise amongst children. In general, people who suffer from anxiety tend to overestimate the danger of a situation and underestimate their ability to cope. These dangers may be real or perceived and tend to be future oriented. Yoga can offer tools to help children cultivate present moment awareness, increase feelings of groundedness and confidence, and help release tension held in their bodies.
For some children, it is nice to be introduced to yoga and mindfulness in private sessions or with a sibling or friend in a semi-private setting.
During our time together, your child will be introduced to some yoga poses for strength, balance, and relaxation. They will be taught easy-to-use breathing techniques and will experience relaxation through restorative poses and final rest. Child friendly meditation and focus techniques will also be introduced.
The sessions will honour your child’s needs, personality, and interests with a goal to establishing a few tools they can turn to in times of need. I do request that you speak with your child about this opportunity and ensure that they are interested in exploring yoga and mindfulness.
After school and summer daytime sessions available
For children 7 years and older
$6o/session or $40 per child for semi-private (+HST)
It is suggested to book a series of 4 sessions so that children can embody some of the practices for use at home and school.

Mother/Daughter YogaAfundamental belief in Yoga is that connection opens the heart and promotes calm and wellbeing, while disconnection causes suffering. At a time when childhood anxiety is all too common and adults are juggling more balls than ever, consciously fostering connection is crucial if we are to raise a generation of children who feel safe, who are resilient, and who move through our world with an open heart. The importance of the foundational relationship between parent and child, and the role it plays in a child’s emotional development, are the grounding principles in the development of this class. While on the surface the act of moving, breathing, and creating with your child appears quite simple, the conscious act of setting aside time to connect and build relationship is healing and powerful.
This class is designed for moms (caregiver/relative) and their 7-12 year old daughter.
