Wednesday 10th April 2019

Yoga for kids workshop 10am – 12 midday

Venue: The Therapy Chalet, Porlock Hill, near Minehead, Somerset.

I will be sharing yoga, mindfulness , breathing and sound with the children. Gentle , meaningful yoga stretches and releases to stimulate our happy hormones and coping chemicals,  fun yoga poses to massage our digestive systems and internal organs, open our lungs and diaphragms and to stimulate the brain as well as personal and inter-personal awareness.

There will be some really fun and engaging yoga kids games and relaxation. Sound with the breath and sound with the poses will be shared along with some tibetan bowl playing which the children are invited to also share .

Much scientific research into the healing power and benefits of sound has been long proven, most notably by the best selling author  of ‘The Hidden Messages of Water ‘ and  leading Japanese scientist, Masau Emoto . He undertook experiments for years to prove that water which had positive words or beautiful lullabies, classical , relaxing music or tibetan bowls formed the most stunning crystals whereas water that was put near televisions, microwaves, pollution, negative words or heavy metal music formed misshapen , deformed crystals. Considering that children are made up of 75% water and adults up to 68% water, this is significant. Tibetan bowls are also proven to relax the pulse down to theta rhythm which is ideal for the body to be in the relax ,rest and repair state of the parasympathetic system.

There will also be a very mindful and deeply relaxing meditation to relax the body, be aware and present in the exact moment to promote rest, focus, concentration along with our bodies filling with the most amazing happy hormones ! Bliss !!

Cost £10 , cake and refreshments included. All ages and abilities welcome. Limited spaces available.
