YOGA BANANAS® CHILDREN'S YOGA
Every Thursday 4-4.30pm @ North Holmwood Village Hall, Dorking, RH5 4HQ.
A unique children's yoga session suitable for primary school children to attend with their parent/s.
Yoga Bananas® is a children's yoga and mindfulness training provider with a creative approach that incorporates all the elements of Hatha Yoga in a form that appeals to children, opening their eyes to the marriage of narrative and movement and the absorbing effects of rhythm and rhyme. We provide original techniques and unique class structures to help children live a meaningful and spiritual life. The exercises aim to promote in children and their parents a healthy awareness of the body and the mind that will be instilled within their lives for many years to come.
The Yoga Bananas Technique™ aims to open in parents and their children an awareness of their gifts, strengths and potentialities, guiding them to develop a deep connection with their inner child. With the focus on embracing the present moment, the Techniques enhance self-worth and boost confidence. A well-rooted confidence in childhood stands much less chance of being lost later in life. Yoga Bananas encourages parents to praise their children whenever they can during the class. Children who are made to feel secure within themsleves whatever is going on around them can more fully enjoy a positive existence despite the competitive nature of human beings and despite their limited influence in the world. Parents' commitment and willingness to view life through the eyes of their child and foster a nurturing environment will make the classes all the more fun.
The Yoga Bananas Technique™ covers all aspects of yoga including breathing, meditation and story-telling, relaxation and visualisation and teaches an understanding of the equality and respect that children and their parents should exercise towards each other.
