Help your child develop a sense of themselves in a busy world! This session allows the children to feel their breath and the movement of their bodies. —Amelia Stone

To develop mindfulness and attention to the present moment

During the session we will be learning techniques that can be practiced at home to support the children in relaxing the body and calming mind and the nervous system. These exercises also support children in going to sleep.

These class will run once a month.

There are 8 spaces available per session.

10am – 10.50am ages 4 – 9 years
11am – 11.50am ages 10 – 15 years
(Please contact Amelia to discuss which class will be best suited to your child’s needs, the age guidelines are flexible)

Parents / Carers are expected to stay and support the children.
Siblings are welcome but priority will go to children with ASD, please contact Amelia to discuss bringing a sibling.

These sessions are being partly funded by NAS, but will only continue if they are sustainable.

£5.50 per space/child. Bookings here on Big Play Narberth

Sessions include movement and yoga postures, breathing exercises and meditation. Yoga and trust games, story time yoga, relaxation and creative meditations.We will also be practicing positive affirmations, daily gratitude practice and mindfulness.

For parents who may worry that their child would not be ‘still/calm/well behaved’ enough for a yoga class-……

My children’s yoga classes are centred around the needs of the child. Every child is allowed to move freely during the sessions. They are encouraged to move in ways that they feel is right for them, and encouraged to be themselves within the group. The sessions are non competitive, non judgmental and inclusive of all additional needs. Everyone is encouraged to join in, but it’s also okay for children to leave the room and re join when they feel able to.

The Mindfulness of the sessions allows the children to be present in how they are feeling, and any ‘big’ emotions are welcome!

I have a background in working with children with a variety of additional needs, and can adapt my way of working to include your child.

I am currently working at Mount Airey School with a class of children who have additional needs and I am working on a one to one basis with a child with ASD. I am also working towards furthering my knowledge and understanding of Yoga for SEN by training with Yogakidz Wolrdwide to become a Certified Special Needs Yoga Teacher.
