Yoga is great exercise. Many of us do it as part of our everyday routine - it's good for our bodies and our minds. So, why not for children too? The health benefits of yoga are numerous. Some of those benefits include an increase in positive body awareness and confidence, better balance and breathing, and increased stress management and concentration skills. To have children learning these techniques at a young age is a definite bonus for families - they are such important life, emotional and social skills.

Yoga at Play combines all of the benefits that come from this time old meditative exercise with fun, music, storytelling and laughter - it's an unbeatable combination.

Kirsten is the face behind Yoga at Play - she is friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the benefits of yoga, especially for children.

Yoga at Play uses the hybrid style of yoga called Acro-Yoga. It's a physical combination of yoga and acrobatics. There are many different styles that have also evolved in Acro-yoga - dance, Thai massage and callisthenics etc. Mostly it's about vigorous movement and being able to have fun with it.

The instructions are simple, the poses are not meant to be textbook perfect. Yoga at Play sessions are fun, loud and very energetic. Kirsten engages with the children - they come away from the sessions having had a heap of fun and also having learnt something new. Kids are encouraged to participate at their own energy level, confidence and attention spans.
