Shine Om engages children through fun and interactive mindful movement. We strive to make each class entertaining and fun while benefiting both our minds and bodies. We follow the philosophy of Rainbow Yoga and believe that yoga is best enjoyed together. We foster the idea of ‘togetherness’ providing children with an opportunity to form connections and learn to work collaboratively with their new yoga friends.
Children benefit from experiencing yoga and mindfulness in many ways. Some benefits include encouraging creativity and improving strength and flexibility while building their self-confidence and self-awareness. Through play and movement, Shine Om teaches your child strategies to relax and reduce stress.
Each yoga class follows a theme and uses music to guide children through yoga poses, mindfulness and relaxation. Our classes are held weekly and are indoors during the winter months (May to September) and outdoors in the summer months (October through to April).
During the pandemic kid’s yoga classes are online and are targeted at kids, aged between 5-12 (primary school-aged). However, this is a guide only, and we do our best to adapt the class to suit the ages and abilities of everyone on Zoom.
Online Kids Yoga Classes – available during winter throughout the pandemic
Our Term 3 classes are held online on Wednesdays from 5 PM to 5.30 PM starting 5 August to 26 August. Each week the kids choose the theme and we use our bodies and imaginations to create yoga stories.
- Classes are $10 per household during this pandemic
Please be ready in the Zoom waiting room at least 5 minutes before class commences to allow your child to settle in and to ensure classes start on time.
