Mini Me Yoga Workshop

An Introduction to Yoga and Positive Thinking for Kids

In this 2.5hour Mini Me Yoga workshop, parents, grandparents, childcare providers and teachers learn simple techniques for introducing 15 minutes a day of kids yoga and positive thinking to preschool and National School children using games and exercises designed to make it fun and engaging.

No experience with yoga is necessary – anyone can join in the kids yoga fun!

Each participant will learn about:

  1. Breathing
  2. Meditation
  3. Why we do kids yoga
  4. Plus, at least 14 yoga poses

It’s action-packed and full of information as well as practical tools. Everyone leaves with what they need to get started right away, with an easy 15 minute a day program designed to be used in your daily routine, whether it be in the home, the classroom, community groups, etc. Introducing these simple games in school, daycare or the home significantly reduces stress, increases children’s capacity to learn and be gentle to one another; it teaches respect for nature and how to grow strong mentally and physically. During this age where childhood diabetes, food intolerances and hyperactivity disorders are on the rise, our games and activities bring much needed fun time where children can create and express themselves. This is an opportunity to strengthen the bond with your child whilst improving their (and your) well-being in just 15 minutes a day.
