Here + More Yoga - Kids and Family Yoga Workshops
Jen from Here is teaming up with Kelly at More Yoga to bring Family and Kids Yoga workshops to families in February and March. These initial workshops will take place at More Yoga’s lovely studio in Finsbury Park, North London, and we welcome people of all abilities. Whether you’re a beginner or yogi with years of practice, we are creating these workshops to bring children and families together through various elements of yoga and mindfulness designed to engage the younger and (only slightly!) older generations.
What are the benefits of children and family yoga?
In one of our recent blogs about the benefits of doing yoga with your child, if was focused on play, however there are so many more benefits for practicing together and for introducing your child to yoga at a young age. One of these important aspects of family yoga is that it’s a chance for you, as a parent, to model the mindful behaviours that you are encouraging your child to instil within their own behaviour. This can be a challenging task if you don’t have the tools and ideas to bring yoga and mindfulness into your own home so this is what we hope to share with you during our family yoga workshop! Alongside this, it is a chance to enjoy a shared space of calm, fun, movement, breathing and relaxation.
One other important factor of introducing your children to yoga, and especially in bringing them to workshops and classes with others, is for them to build upon their social skills. It’s providing the opportunity to develop relationships with peers in this positive and open environment which invites children to share thoughts, express themselves, and support each other through poses, breathing, and games.
Come and join us!
This is a new and exciting venture and we at Here are so excited to be on this journey to bring yoga and mindfulness to more families and children here in London. We invite children aged between 4-10 to our children’s workshop on Thursday 21st February 3:30-5pm, and parents of any age with children aged 5+ to our family workshop on Saturday 2nd March 2-3:30pm. It will be a lovely opportunity to connect with other parents who share the same interests and also for your children to connect with peers too!

We are so looking forward to meeting you and your children and creating this opportunity to share the joy of yoga and mindfulness with you :)
