About Lamaste Yoga
At Lamaste we are all about having fun and learning through yoga.
Yoga can be really beneficial for young people's social, emotional and physical development.
Yoga teaches young people tools to cope with increasing pressures they are exposed to in our modern world. These tools include breath awareness, problem solving, mindfulness, self confidence, concentration and the practice of kindness and compassion to themselves and others.
Through storytelling, drama and yoga games children learn the importance of honesty, kindness, moderation, generosity and contentment, the core aspects of yogic philosophy.
Children also learn the physical poses and work individually and in partnership without the pressure of perfection or competition. Older children learn mindfulness and guided visualization and meditation techniques.
We aim to facilitate a safe and positive atmosphere in our classes where children feel comfortable.
