"Why bringing kids yoga to schools can make a real difference."
We learn many things in school, mainly so-called "facts", but we don't receive the many tools that will help us live a better life. Here are a few of the most important things that can support and enhance our lives:
1.How to be happy
2. How to manage emotions
3. How to communicate in a positive way
4. How to keep our body healthy
5. How to increase your self-esteem
6. How to concentrate
7. How to relax and find peace of mind
8. How to be creative
Yoga offers tools to imbibe these skills that can create a healthier and well adapted future generation.
I offer 5-week workshops to Pre Schools, Primary Schools and Secondary Schools in Donegal.
The Workshop includes:
• Breathing Exercises
• Stretching through Yoga Poses
• Guided Imagery & Relaxation
• Positively Interacting with Classmates
“I just finished a block of toddler yoga classes with Joanne. I just wanted to say how brill this class was. I have a very shy and anxious girl when it comes to mixing in new situations with new people and wanted to bring her to some classes to try and make her feel more comfortable. From not taking part at all in the first class to loving and jumping around and full participation within 4 weeks, it speaks for itself really. Thank you Joanne for a fab set of classes. I know you have one very happy yogi and mummy after it all.”

“I did a set of toddler yoga classes with Joanne with my little boy who had just turned 3. He absolutely loved it and so did I. We both really looked forward to our Saturday mornings. He hadn’t started pre school yet, so Iwas keen to get him involved in a group actvitiy like this, and toddler yoga was perfect. He was really shy on the first day,but by the end of the 5 weeksm he joined in with everything and had really developed in confidence. Joanne is a natural with young kids, and I would highly recommend these classes”
