Thursday 4.00 pm - 5.00 Term 3 2020 (10 weeks) Commencing Thursday 16 July
Age 8 -11 years
At this delightful age children are still enthusiastic learners and want to give everything a go. It is a very open age group and we provide a conducive environment to teach core yogic principles and more detailed postures. Children are challenged by the more detailed postures as at this age they start to doubt themselves and compare themselves to others. We ensure to create a solid, safe and non-competitive, everyone is perfect environment using lots of positive reinforcement to build self-esteem and confidence. We switch between fun and serious, starting the class with a short discussion about the topic of the day. Children at this age have amazing insight into worldly affairs as well as their own emotions and they participate enthusiastically in the discussions, including exploring options of managing emotional upsets. We continue the process of a deep inward journey through breath work and relaxation using visual imagery.
