Summer school holidays are fun and action-packed but even children can benefit from a relaxing activity like this Introduction to Yoga class at The Grounds of Alexandria, Sydney.

Kids Yoga is a fun and incredibly beneficial activity for children of all ages. Classes comprise of movement with an emphasis on games, partner exercises and short meditations help them to develop coordination, flexibility and strength as well as still their minds. They may also experience better sleep, an improvement in concentration, attitude, respect and consideration for others, and the ability to self-manage their emotions through breathing techniques.

In terms of age group, they can do yoga for toddlers and up but need to group them into quite tight brackets as they’re all at such different developmental stages. The way they are grouped:

Monday, January 8 will be focused on younger kids from 4 – 8 years

Wednesday, January 24 will be focused on older kids from 9 – years

The teacher Meg Hutchison knows how to keep it fun and enjoyable too so that your child will not feel like being back in school!

There will be a seating area for parents to observe and we will provide yoga mats for each child. You only need to ensure they are wearing loose, comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle for them to use if they get thirsty.

****NEW! You can now pre-order a kids lunchbox that they will have ready for you at the end of the workshop. You can then decide if you eat in the Atrium, take it home or to our beautiful garden! During the booking process, you will be asked to confirm any dietary requirements (no vegan options at this time). This information is needed when booking due to the volume to produce on each day.****

More about our teacher

Meg first discovered yoga at a gym in London more than 7 years ago. As a trained classical ballet dancer she was attracted to the physical asana aspect of yoga, especially the dance-like flow of a Vinyasa class, however soon fell in love with the way yoga helped her cope with the demands of a high-pressure PR career and insomnia.

As yoga became more and more an integral part of her daily lifestyle, Meg enrolled in a teacher training course to deepen her personal practice and learn more about the philosophy of yoga, and from there developed a desire to share the transformational benefits of yoga with others.

Meg loves yoga for its ability to help give people of all ages, genders, races, religions and abilities the tools to connect and balance body, mind and spirit. Her adult classes integrate movement with pranayama (breath work) and meditation to find balance in the body and stillness of mind. Her classical ballet background gives her an eye for precise alignment and an innate understanding of the way the human body moves.

Meg teaches a variety of hatha, vinyasa and yin classes at studios and gyms around Sydney, as well as corporate and private 1:1 lessons.
