I think my child is too active to enjoy Melbourne Kids Yoga.
Melbourne Kids Yoga caters for ALL children, the active and the more quiet ones. MKY classes have equal parts of activity and relaxation and are planned to get their little bodies moving and then slow them down. Children will be using different muscles and moving in ways that require not just energy but focus to achieve new postures. Please remember that it can take 3-4 classes for young children to become familiar with this new activity so don’t worry if they sit to the side and observe or even run circles for the first few classes. They’ll be taking it all in and very often will practice the poses at home until they become familiar with the new environment and people then suddenly you’ll have a little yogi in your midst!
