Children's classes at YogaSana in Barcelona are non-traditional, energy-fuelled sessions that are invigorating, interactive and imaginative.
Acting like barking dogs, mooing cows, or roaring lions are just some of the wild-child games that kids take part in during the session. The courses are designed to develop a child's mind, body, and spirit and yoga play is followed by asanas (yoga postures) that typically originate from the natural world. As YogaSana see it, children are not little adults, they don't practice yoga - they live it.
Children respond to different stimuli, and learn in different ways.
Through yoga they can access a wealth of life skills that include creativity, cooperation and confidence.
Yoga Prenatal classes are also run at the centre, giving expectant mums a chance to take time out, focus on themselves and prepare mentally and physically for childbirth and motherhood. Each class includes breathing work (pranayama) and pregnancy specific yoga postures (asanas) which strengthen the body and protect the mobile joints. At the end of each class there is time for deep relaxation and light massage.
For those recovering from birth who want to enjoy some playful exercises with baby, the <i>Mommie & Me</i> classes are designed to regain alignment, tone the pelvic floor and re-establish core-strength. Babies participate with their mothers throughout the class, enjoying age-appropriate exercises and massages as well as observing the movement around them. The classes are also open to fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers - in fact anyone with a baby is welcome.
Small groups and private classes can also be given in the comfort of your own home.
