Themes
A series of yoga lessons revolves around a theme that is suited to the students:

- For teens, this may be physical posture for daily life, acceptance, letting go of judging ourselves.

- For 7-11 year olds, the body, sustainability, caring for each other, the biosphere.

- For younger children, people who help us or a trip to the beach.

Skills

As a highly experienced educator, Carol plans each series carefully, with multi-dimensional progression and variety to foster:

   Focus and concentration

   Physical strength

   Coordination

   Flexibility

   Emotional intelligence

   Ability to relax

   Social skills & empathy

   Creativity and imagination

Content of Sessions

All sessions include body mind movement, use of the breath, relaxation.

A selection of creative art, yoga sequencing, yoga games, music, stories, poetry, knowledge, mindfulness, yoga dance or Qi Gong.

Gradually, as self-awareness grows, students internalise the experiences so that they become able to connect their yoga practice to their daily lives which enables them to thrive.


Inclusion

Carol has taught many non-English language users so will happily lead sessions that simultaneously strengthen an understanding of English within the calm setting of yoga.

She is particularly experienced in using yoga to enhance sensory integration.

 
 

YOGA FOR FAMILIES & FRIENDS

Family yoga develops calm, playful and loving connections as parents and children work in partnership. Yoga with friends is great fun, the atmosphere that is cultivated develops understanding and empathy as the students assist, relax and partner each other.


Carol leads sessions for families and friends with children and adults of all ages, including parents and grandparents. This can be a series of sessions or a one-off for a special occasion.

 
 
 

HIKING YOGA & CHILDREN'S YOGA

Carol's positive influence over my two girls has been amazing,

teaching them to be aware of their feelings,

embrace the positive power of yoga and to grow a connection with nature.
