Inner Child Yoga empowers children to connect with their true-self and love who they are.
As a mother who practices with her son, I saw first-hand the many physical, emotional and mental benefits that yoga brings to children.
My kids yoga training has been completed with Zenergy Yoga under the guidance of Loraine Rushton, who wrote the standards for kids yoga in Australia:
* 95 hours Children’s Yoga Teacher Training, including Yoga Therapy for Special Needs, accredited by Yoga Alliance
* 75 hours assisting the delivery of Zenergy Children’s Yoga Teacher Training courses
* 175 hours Zenergy Leadership Programme
Education is an ongoing pursuit, I have also completed The Science and Practice of Yoga with YogaMOOC.
Yoga is a gift that can be shared with people of all ages, it is through this passion that Inner Child Yoga was born.
Inner Child Yoga offers term time programs to preschool and primary school aged children and workshops during the school holidays. Classes include adapted Hatha style poses, yoga therapy movements, games, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation.
Yoga is a practice that can be taken off the mat and into everyday life. Inner Child Yoga is on Instagram, has a Facebook page and Pinterest boards full of information and resources for carers and families to share with their children at home or at school.
As parents and carers, we have the privilege of creating the inner child of tomorrow’s adults. Yoga is a beautiful platform for children to explore their bodies and minds in a safe, fun and nurturing environment.
