Rise Up Kids Yoga & OT • Whispa Wellness, Albion 3020star5.0(View 15 ratings)

Overview

    On these July school holidays, parents, are you looking for an activity for your child/ren that is:
    * Meaningful and fun
    * Purposeful and beneficial to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing
    * Harnesses their imagination, creativity, curiosity, playfulness and attention?
    * Builds their strength, co-ordination, balance and flexibility
    * Nurtures their superpowers (their strengths) and their gorgeous and unique self
    * Is value for money

    ...then this Mindful Movers Wellbeing session ticks all your boxes!

    Tweens will explore yoga and mindful movement practices, learn and experiment with strategies to relax and focus their minds, engage in fun group activities and create something special to take home as a memento. These sessions are not your typical yoga that you may come to expect for adult classes. In fact, quite different! They are focussed on fun, engagement, connection, feeling comfortable within your own skin and creating moments of joy, laughter, flow, mindfulness, relaxation and creativity in many different ways. They provide tweens with important wellbeing skills and knowledge that they can take away and use in their life.

    These classes are run by Paediatric Occupational Therapist (OT) and Children & Teens Yoga Teacher Michelle. Michelle has more than 20 years of clinical experience working with children and families as an OT. She is knowledgeable about children's development and wellbeing, and is passionate about supporting and empowering them to become the best version of themselves all whilst having HEAPS of fun!

    Parent feedback:
    "My son had “fun”!! Which is high praise from him" For more reviews, see Rise Up Kids Yoga and OT profile page.

    No prior experience of Yoga is required and children don't need to be flexible!

    If you have any questions about the session and your child's suitability, please feel free to contact me! Details on provider page.
