At Calm Collective we provide Yoga for the whole family, and believe cultivating an interest in Yoga can start at an early age. Yoga can be highly beneficial for growing minds and bodies, and during these Yoga classes kids will build self esteem, gain confidence, learn new skills, relaxation techniques, gain flexibility, learn about fitness and leading a healthy lifestyle and more all in a fun and non competitive activity, taking them away from the stresses and worries of school, social media and life and bringing them into a nurturing, encouraging and nourishing environment.
Age 5-7 (Wednesdays 16:15-17:00)
Kids Yoga is the perfect way to encourage young children to lead healthy lives, both physically and mentally. In classes we learn and play, moving our bodies intuitively in a non-competitive activity to encourage confidence, and boost self-esteem.
In our age 5-7 group we spend a lot of the class playing, singing, dancing and using our imagination to create stories, learn about and create Yoga poses, and also discuss and practice mindfulness techniques to develop skills to help them cope with stress and ultimately to better equip them for the world. We partake in group activities, games, partner work, basic acrobatic postures and also crafting, creating and story time with each class based on both educational and cultural themes so the younger children can develop their motor skills, reading skills, knowledge of the world, countries, environment, nature and more every session.
This class is perfect for all children, including those with ADHD, ASD or other learning or behavioural impediments.
Age 8-12 (Thursdays 16:15-17:00)
Yoga for ages 8-12 takes on a more mature theme, still incorporating play and imagination, however classes revolve mostly around traditional Yoga postures and building strength and increasing flexibility in the body.
We also focus much more on relaxation and stress relief using meditations, breathing exercises and mindfulness tools that are age appropriate, and that can also be practiced outside the studio in every day life, such as school and stressful situations.
We also do more independent practice in the older classes, while still enjoying group and partner work, we start to learn how to focus on ourselves, practicing looking inwards and honing focus and concentration, becoming more body aware and enabling the children to make autonomous decisions based on their needs and wants.
This class is perfect for all children, and especially prevalent to this who are feeling worried at school or home, those who partake in competitive sports, those who do not enjoy competitive sports, and of course, those with ADHD, ASD and other learning or behavioural impediments
Teen Yoga (Thursdays 17:15-18:15)
Teen Yoga is for those ages 12-16, with the students who are 12 making their own decision based on their maturity of whether they will enjoy the 8-12 class or want a much more mature style of Yoga, as we say in Yoga…”Yogi’s choice”, and giving children these choices allows them to grow in their independence and autonomous decision making.
Teen Yoga is an hour long class that incorporates traditional Yoga styles taught at an introductory level as well as all the tools and techniques teens need to get through school, their social life, family life, hormones and more!
With everything going on for teens nowadays, from more pressure at school, to the dark hole that is social media, as well as their budding social life, teen Yoga gives these kids an hour a week away from the world, allowing them to be themselves, with no pressure or need to “be good” or “perfect” at anything
In these classes we try to vary the practice week by week, pulling from traditional styles such as Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, as well as Restorative Yoga and Partner & Acro Yoga, so that the teens are able to get a wide range of knowledge on every aspect of Yoga. We also practice meditation, mindfulness, breathing techniques and also partake in group discussions around themes such as worry, stress, sadness, and discuss stress relief techniques and self care ideas, sharing our own opinions and thoughts, creating bonds in the group and allowing the teens to open up and feel listened to.
Teen Yoga is perfect for all teens, including those with ADHD, ASD or other learning or behavioural impediments, and is great as a compliment to those who play sports such as football, boxing, dance or gymnastics, those who are struggling at school, those who have anxiety, those with eating disorders, physical limitations…basically any teen who wants to feel healthy, happy and stress free!
