What is Family Yoga?
Family Yoga is beautiful because it is all centred around love, fun, bonding and learning. It is not about perfection or 'being the best'it's about individuals exploring a story, exploring movement of the body, trust, communication and love. These classes can become a very special time in your day or week where you can forget EVERYTHING in your life and just focus on the moment in time that you are standing in. Giving your full attention to yourself and your child/children.
You are your child's first and most important teacher. Your little one may learn about phonics and number patterns at school but they learn about LIFE, PEOPLE, RELATIONSHIPS and so much more with you. Just by being in your company, watching you and copying you they are building their character,, their self esteem and their FUTURE.
This sounds serious and quite heavy! Hey, I'm a mum, I know the weight of parenting can feel pretty heavy at times. But creating time and space for fun together is so important and trying to remember #lovenotcontrol can really lighten the load.
Attending Family Yoga is sooooooo much fun on surface level. When we dig a little deeper its clear that through Yoga we are actually guiding and teaching soooooo much to our children.
Here is a brief exploration of how & what (full blog coming soon);
By sharing an experience together where you are focused on each other you are showing how much value you place on your time together.
Letting go of 'perfection' and allowing you and your child to explore and try new things/moves/ideas in a fluid, calm and natural way.
Learning about the yoga mat and what we do on it and around it. This helps with when you get home and you roll out the yoga mat. You can talk about what you use it for in class, how we use it and even try & remember some of the stories or create your own!
Experiencing being part of a community together. Each week you will turn up to the class and the same parents & children will be there. Each week you are modeling to your child interacting with new faces & spaces.
Plus all the learning planned into the content of each and every class.
