Iona’s yoga sessions for preschoolers are an innovative culmination of her 20 years’ personal yoga practice in the UK and India, many years’ experience of teaching kindergarten-aged children in Japan and the UK, Unity Yoga teaching training (IYN 200 hours) and life skills gained from having her own preschooler at home to share “yoga storytimes” with. Her lively sessions are designed around a story that will be familiar to all little ones; from classic fairytales to Julia Donaldson. Mixed up with some moving meditation to child-friendly songs, bite-sized mindfulness and more.
Iona believes that yoga offers subtle yet powerful tools that can help even small children nurture their inner light, develop emotional resilience, overcome stress, anxiety and other mental health issues, build confidence, develop coordination and motor skills, as well as keep fit and enjoy long term wellness. Her classes are also a lovely opportunity for grown-ups to share something special with their little ones and bond on a far deeper level.
Breathing, movement and meditation practices are probably needed more now than ever before, and can be introduced in a really fun way from a young age. As you will find out when you attend Iona’s classes!
Children of all abilities are welcome. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
