Kiddy Kalma Yoga

Mindful Movement, Music, and Meditation for Kids and Teens.

Kiddy Kalma Yoga

Kiddy Kalma Yoga classes are not like your usual Yoga class… Each session is designed with children in mind and contains elements of Yoga, mindfulness, music, drama, storytelling, and arts & crafts. The classes are always focused on providing kids with a safe space to play, have fun, relax, get moving, and get mindful.

Today’s modern world can be a busy and overwhelming place for young people. With the stress and over-stimulation that can come along with school, exams, gaming, and social media and so on, children can find it hard to relax and take their mind off all the distractions.

But we can help! Kiddy Kalma Yoga classes help children to develop their ability to self-soothe and 'kalm' themselves amidst all the chaos. Classes are full of games and songs and movement, but also provide children with moments of mindfulness, relaxation, deep breathing, and 'kalm.'

The Benefits of Yoga

The benefits of Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness are countless and fast becoming more widely recognised for having a lasting impact on both physical and mental health. While the physical poses (Asanas) help to strengthen muscles, improve flexibility, balance, and co-ordination, the deep breathing (Pranayama) and relaxation techniques can help to develop focus, concentration, memory, positive outlook, and energy levels. And Yoga does all this while also encouraging the values of being a peaceful, helpful individual with a respect for all the world's people.

But the real beauty is this: your child will, of course, have fun, exercise, make new friends, and learn new songs and games and Yoga poses. And then, one day when they are feeling overwhelmed at a party or at school or elsewhere, you might just catch them using the little tricks they’ve learnt in class and having a quiet moment to meditate or breathe…

And...

This is our goal: to help as many children as possible develop their ability to 'kalm' themselves as they go through life. We truly believe that, with a basic understanding of the practices of Yoga, children will find that, as they grow, they already have the tools they need to help cope with stress, anxiety, sleep-disorders (and more!).

So, why wait? Let Kiddy Kalma Yoga help your child (and you!) find a peaceful moment of 'kalm.'

Find your happy...

Kiddy Kalma Stories:

One of our brilliant Kiddy Kalma Yogis came along to a session hoping Yoga would help him keep strong for football.

Little did he know, it could do more than just that...

He was flying in Crow Pose in his first session

And we couldnt't be prouder of him :)

 

Some Kiddy Kalma Yogis have become so aware of how helpful meditation can be in real life that their parents often see them practicing when in stressful situation or a need for a moment of 'kalm.'

As the Dalai Lama says: "If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation."

Well, let's all have a go!
