Kids Yoga & Teen Yoga Classes in Kirchberg and Merl
Yoga helps kids become more confident, strong, balanced and friendly.
Each Kids Yoga (5-10yrs) class is alive with magical journeys where we meet with animals, fly an airplane or drive a car, grow into a tree or imitate the ocean waves, all in the form of dynamic yoga poses.
Teen Yoga (10-13yrs) classes integrate traditional yoga poses, flowing sequences, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation techniques as well as self-reflection. This course will also give them some tools for dealing with their everyday tasks in a more relaxing way, make them feel empowered and more confident with their bodies, stimulate their imagination, raise their awareness on peace and treating their body gently… all the while having fun and helping them find their own way towards stillness :-).
The teacher can adapt the course languages based on the Teens that enroll, but we would need to limit it to two languages for sake of time. We will offer English and either FR, DE or LU as needed.
