Here at YogaBears, our mission is to use yoga to develop the mind, body and soul, and to create a sense of oneness within each and every child. Read on for more about these benefits.
Why Is Yoga Great For Children!
We are Flexible
Children are born with a natural flexibility. Yogabears take children on a magical Yogabear adventure through the A-Z of YogaBears which are inspired by traditional Yoga Postures.
We are aware
During our YogaBears classes, we highlight to children the importance of their breath. As each posture is explored, not only are our YogaBears aware of stillness or movement, they are innately aware of the control of the breath and positive affect it has on their mind and bodies.
YogaBears allows children to flow through movements and postures in rhythm with gentle breathing. A controlled rhythm of breathing increases blood flow, which in turn improves circulation throughout the body, helping everything to flow effectively. Our YogaBears are beautifully balanced, inside and out.
We Are Aligned
We enhance and protect our children’s natural posture throughout the A-Z of YogaBears, aiding in the development of happy children who are aligned not only physically, but emotionally.
We Are Non-Competitive
YogaBears is suitable for all children. We are all born YogaBears with innate superpowers, and at YogaBears we encourage children to go at their own pace to allow their individual superpowers to thrive.
We Are Calm
YogaBears helps to soothe children’s minds with a peaceful and positive syllabus, with enjoyment at the core and a sense of self control every step of the way.
Such an amazing place full of beautiful people, such a wonderful thing to give your child the gift of yoga. My daughter has attended YogaBears for years and she still looks forward to her yoga fix on Saturdays.
The YogaBears ethos is so inspiring, the way in which they work with the children means that even the younger children are super engaged. My daughter dances and her yoga practice helps her in so many ways.
Amazing class and amazing team! My girls have come on so much since starting last year. I have watched their confidence, concentration & compassion grow so much. They love YogaBears!
My son struggled slightly with anxious and excited behaviour, YogaBears and Ces & Kate really helped him to learn how to become aware of this and how to calm himself through his breathing!!
