    Yoga is a great way to build confidence and awareness through creative engagement with the body and breath.

    Curriculum
    Yoga Through The Chakras

    This week-long program will introduce yoga to children through 5 themes based on the Chakras described in Ancient Yogic practice. The body has 7 Chakras or energy centres and each resembles a different energy or context. During this week we will look at the first 5 Chakras, each lending a theme to the yoga class, activities and mindfulness practice of the day.
