Multiple children warning!
If you have more than one child and in different age groups choose the class that suits your family the best. Ideally so you do not feel over stretched and exhausted and to avoid the children competing for your attention, the best ratio is one child to one adult. This is not always possible but it will be challening juggling more than one child at a time unless they are quite different ages.
Each class has a theme:
Sea Life, Big Cats, Jungle , Bears, Insects, The Cosmos, Transport, Sports
If you are interested in this class, please let me know.
Privates groups & school classes are available too.
My name is Tara and over the past 17 years of teaching yoga, I have had the privilege of meeting hundreds of new mothers and their babies and toddlers through my classes. But eventually the parents go back to work and kiddies are off to nursery and schools and I miss my babies that I have seen every week for months! So it seems only natural to want to invite these youngsters and their parents back to discover more of what yoga can offer as a family ( after they are 2 is best!). I regard myself as a playful person who loves to roll around and play with children, for me this part of parenthood has been very natural. My teenage girls still enjoy feet , head and back rubs and a good wrestle and playful yoga. It has been be such a valuable mood changer and a easy loving way to give (and time and space permitting ) and extend this to the rest of my family and friends. I may not of given them the gift of art or music but play and massage I have excelled in!
The Family Acro Yoga training really appealed to me for this reason and it gave me more experiences and included a lot more Acroyoga. It also gives me that quality time with ‘little people’ that I miss now my girls don’t need me in the same way. My youngest daugther now has me balance on her, how the clocks change!
In these family yoga classes you can practice how to bring more play, calm, love and have fun into your family home. Children often don’t need the latest toy, or a distraction of a gadget, what they crave is touch. The classes provides a time and space for kids and adults to play and have fun together with plenty of physical contact.
So whether play and massage comes natural to you or not, in this hour you have put everything else aside and have said to the children let’s go and have fun, and explore, move and mimick some of the creatures in the the animal kingdom.
Once a month classes for children 2.5 – 7 years and 7 to 11 years. Ideally one child to one parent ratio.
