Teaching toddlers and pre-school children yoga can be rewarding and a fantastic addition to other classes such as baby massage and baby yoga. Nurseries and other child care settings also find toddler and pre-school yoga sessions a great asset to their setting.

What is toddler and pre-school yoga?

Toddler and pre-school yoga is a great way of introducing young children (18 months to 3 years) to yoga and its many benefits. The toddler yoga weaves yoga in to songs, stories and sensory play making it fun and engaging for both toddlers and parents. Our programme has a strong emphasis on child development as well as teaching key life skills through the yoga, sensory play, story telling and songs. Following the face to face days, there are post course case studies with children in your own area to be completed and written up.
