Yoga games, storytime yoga, affirmations and breathing games are some of the elements you can expect in a typical family yoga class. The classes are centred around the children, and built for fun. Previous yoga experience is not essential, and the class is open to the whole family: parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles – and of course, children.
Some of the benefits of a family practice include:
- Connections between family members are strengthened through partner poses and cooperative games
- As parents we model behaviour and our children copy it. By engaging in healthy activities such as yoga we model positive, healthy behaviours for our children.
- Learn techniques to calm and quieten as a family, and take this off the mat and into the home
- Have fun, get flexible and relax together in a non-competitive, safe environment
