Why Yoga for Kids?

Research shows that kids learn best with a multi-sensory approach, using kinaesthetic, visual and aural learning. This makes yoga an ideal learning tool. Yoga for children …

  • Improves flexibility, strength and body awareness
  • Enhances self-confidence and positive social interaction
  • Encourages self-expression and imaginative play
  • Improves focus, balance, co-ordination spatial awareness
  • Increases awareness of breathing and deepens the breath
  • Provides a playful, fun way for children to learn how to relax

When kids are having fun, their brains are switched on for learning!

Some people are good at yoga, but not good with kids; some people are good with kids, but not at yoga (like me).


Michaela is great at both! Add to this her wonderful voice and creative thinking and you have a yoga class that is fun, highly imaginative and leaves kids in a really positive and relaxed state. Highly recommended!
