The Yoga Club is up and running again at John Colet and we had a wonderful group of enthusiastic young yogis attending the first class on Wednesday.
Yoga with children offers many possibilities to exchange wisdom, share good times, and lay the foundation for, hopefully, a lifelong practice.
The children showcased great manners and respect towards each other as a group where the ages varied. They were taught proper breathing, basically abdominal breathing rather than chest breathing, which has many health benefits.
We also went through about 15 various yoga poses, which will set a good foundation for the rest of the program this term.
We do have 5 spots still if other students are interested to join.
Throughout the 8-week program we will employ ecology, anatomy, nutrition, and life lessons that echo yogic principles of interdependence, oneness, and fun.
Most of all, our program engages the entire mind, body, and spirit in a way that honours the ways children learn.
JOHN COLET YOGA CLUB IS ON WEDNESDAYS 3:15-4PM
