Term 1: The Tiny Explorer
Tuesday 13th February ~ Saturday 7th April (8 weeks)
Focus: Bones, Body Parts & Brave Hearts
We start from the inside, with a fascinating and entertaining journey into our bones through the landscape of a giant’s body, with our curious, caped companion, the Tiny Explorer. Children learn about basic human anatomy, discover how it all moves and fits together, beginner’s yoga poses and how every adventure is better when we begin with courage in our hearts.
Term 2: The Call of the Wild!
Tuesday 8th May ~ Saturday 30th June (8 weeks)
Focus: Animal Yoga/Movement, Nature Studies, Body Language & Self-Expression
Animal Kingdom here we come! We travel back in time to the primal origins of yoga, observing and mimicking creatures great and small in their natural habitat. Besides encouraging confidence in self-expression, your wild child will have the time of their life as they embrace their animal spirit and release those wolf howls!
Term 3: Fairy & Wizard School!
Tuesday 31st July ~ Saturday 22nd September (8 weeks)
Focus: Magic Mind Meditation, Yoga Action Sequences, Potion Making and being Magical You!
We welcome you to the yoga school of childhood dreams! Grab your broomsticks and wands and get ready for magical days at Imagination Yoga. The lessons here will have you spell bound! Our movement will be with intention, flow and grace. We will learn meditation tricks (maybe even levitation tricks!?) This is the school where we have lessons on how to believe in our mighty selves, stretch tall (& shrink small!) and trust our inner wizard. Mostly expect fun, fun, FUN!
Term 4: The Seven Worlds Tour!
Tuesday 23rd October~Saturday 15th December (8 weeks)
Focus: Energy, Emotions, Inner Resources & Creative Spark
We head into outer space on a fantastical mission to seven mythical planets that represent each of the colours of the rainbow/energy of the chakras. On each planet we will meet a mysterious and kind animal guide that has its own special star quality. We will embark on a problem-solving adventure with each of these new friends and have a completely colourful and cosmic time. Especially confidence building and inspirational for budding artists, explorers, creators and storytellers.
