Happy Faces: Kids Yoga
Occupational therapy and yoga is a powerful mix. Research shows that yoga cultivates mind-body awareness, self-regulation and physical fitness. Yoga assists with children’s behaviour, and mental and physical health, leading to increased resilience, academic outcomes, social effectiveness and general school performance.
The Happy Faces Yoga Program is designed to expose your child to the science of body, mind and self-regulation. The program is tailored to actively teach the principles of yoga postures, deep breathing, yoga philosophy, deep relaxation, mindfulness & meditation. Through the program, children will develop resilience and coping strategies for everyday life.
We are excited to be partnering with the Good Shepherd Home to hold the classes onsite which also gives us access to the beautiful Palmetum Botanical Gardens. Some of the classes are held in the Gardens which is a great way for children to see nature in a different light using mindfulness techniques.
We also facilitate Happy Faces Yoga for Kids at schools and early childhood centres. We have classes for 4-6 year olds and 7-12 year olds.
We run 5-week programs and children can continue their journey with us for as long as they wish. They will get something new out of each session and we encourage each child to participate in the full 5-week program.
