Yoga for Children and Teens

Emma has been working with children in schools and studios in UK for over ten years and specialises in working therapeutically in schools with children with SEN and additional needs.  She co-founded Children’s Yoga Tree to provide a high standard of Yoga and Mindfulness for Children, Schools and Families across the UK. She  believes the discipline and playfulness of yoga is an essential building block in child development – nurturing children to be calm, creative and resilient in a challenging world.

Children’s Yoga Tree is a Training School specialising in Yoga and Mindfulness for Schools, Family Yoga and Yoga Therapy for Special Needs. It offers training for teachers and yoga teachers, accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals, tailored to the needs of students. We currently offer accredited online courses training students to become children’s yoga teachers.

Children’s Yoga Tree’s network of outstanding Children’s Yoga Teachers in schools and studios across the UK inspire children to be calm, creative and resilient through the discipline and playfulness of yoga. Yoga supports children’s learning by providing a calm space in the school day to stretch, relax and develop focus and concentration.

Classes for young children focus on animal poses, non-competitive yoga games and stories, fun breathing exercises and guided relaxation. Sessions for older children encourages healthy body awareness, creativity and confidence. During the term children create their own yoga poses, build a sequence of poses and discover mindfulness and meditation.

Yoga Therapy helps children develop core strength, motor skills, co-ordination and balance. Yoga is also is calming for nervous system and helps to builds focus and concentration.
