About the class
Nursery & KS1 classes are developed around a short age appropriate story and theme to support the National Curriculum and emed the promotion of British Values within the lessons.

Children at this age still thrive on routine. Each yoga classes therefore begins and ends in the same way. Children will become familiar with welcoming each other into a positive, kind environment with the ‘Hello’ song, and end by giving thanks with the ‘Namaste’ song. This allows children to build confidence and familiarity which is built upon during the course of yoga classes.

Classes are structured with learning a variety of breathing techniques such as ‘Equal Breathing’, ‘Bumble Bee Breath’ and ‘Lion’s Breath’. Awareness of breath equips children to handle challenges such as anxiety or strong emotions.

Children then partcipate in a yoga warm up, asanas, partner yoga, and yoga games connected with the yoga story of the lesson. To finish, children learn to be still and quiet during the guided visual meditation.

KS2 and Year 7 secondary school yoga classes concentrate on themes connected to resilience. Lessons explore ‘Positive Body Image’, ‘Feelings’, ‘Believing in Yourself’, ‘Anxiety’ and many more.

Children will warm up their bodies in the practice of ‘Sun Saluation’ sequence each week, which will provide confidence as they enhance technique over the course.

Children will then explore the lesson theme through breathing techniques, yoga flow asanas, partner and group yoga and yoga games to promote working as a team.

The class ends will a longer savasana (relaxation) to encourage children to enjoy a time of quiet, stillness and reflection.
