Fun yoga for kids aged 4 and up!
In Yoga Kids Roc classes there is a beautiful balance between spontaneity and structure. The kids help create the class with guidance from Rocci. We use stories, games, music, breathing and poses to create a journey in different times and places around the universe. We end each class with a short quiet time in which we learn the skills to relax. Even at 4 years old children can learn the benefits of time to sit/lie still and quieten the mind, helping to control emotions.
Yoga Practitioners have long seen the benefits of yoga including stress and pain relief, improved circulation, a sense of well being and inner peace. Yoga is a great remedy for the stresses found in the school environment. It encourages concentration, positive thinking, confidence, self-esteem and self-expression.
Yoga keeps the bones healthy, strong and aligned, and the muscles around them supple. It helps achieve good posture, a straight spine and healthy lungs. Balancing poses help keep focus and build concentration. Poses named after animals and geometric angles encourage imagination and play. All philosophies and religious disciplines can be embraced and deepened, as yoga has freedom from religious dogma. Yoga is all inclusive and expands the mind and heart to embrace differences between peoples.

Tatty Bumpkin classes are fun, yoga-inspired stories designed to encourage movement and enhance development. The sessions focus on giving a firm foundation for social, emotional and physical confidence - all required for future happiness and success. Each session follows an adventure, using stories, music, props and simple yoga moves based around the character doll Tatty Bumpkin.
Tatty Bumpkin classes really do help children become happy and confident - emotionally, socially and physically, which is the foundation for a happy and successful future. Success can be measured by 'well being' - the ultimate goal of all human endeavour, is that we feel good about ourselves and the people around us, and do things in our lives which give us a sense of meaning and value. Tatty Bumpkin will help you and your children understand what this means and how to achieve it.
