PRESCHOOL YOGA

Storytime Yoga for Early Learning Centres across Auckland

Offering kids yoga in your childcare centre brings with it a host of benefits for the children, your staff and your early childhood centre.  

By incorporating a centre-based kids yoga preschool program, you begin to cultivate a calm and relaxed environment for both the children and your staff. Not only do the children benefit from a regular yoga and mindfulness practice, but you can boost your enrolments too.  

 

Little Yogis Storytime Yoga

Kids yoga classes give children a chance to move their bodies, have fun, and learn about being mindful and their breath in a safe and supportive environment. Children's yoga classes are designed to help kids develop strength, flexibility and coordination while learning about their magical breath and how it helps them to self soothe and build resilience.  

 

Yoga for children has been shown to improve emotional regulation and challenging behaviours, reduce stress and cultivate a general sense of wellbeing.  

Our toddler yoga and children's yoga classes are the best yoga for kids’ classes you can offer.

If you're looking for a way to boost
enrolment and provide a healthy learning environment consider offering in-school yoga for kids

Here's why:  

WEEKLY CLASSES

Classes are run by highly trained kids yoga teachers who are passionate about kids AND yoga.

Each class combines traditional yoga techniques with breathing exercises, stories, music, imagination and mindfulness to create a unique kids yoga experience. 

These classes encourage children to discover their inner potential in a non-threatening environment and to feel good about themselves, both inside and out.

Our business model partners with centres that choose yoga because of it’s many worthwhile gifts. What differentiates Kids Yoga from other large motor activities is it’s additional focus on deep breathing, mindfulness and meditation.

 

These experiences equip young children with tools to help manage anxiety and stress, such as separation anxiety and social challenges. We passionately believe that such tools should be offered to every child.
