Beaming Kids classes use stories, games, music, dance, singing, positive affirmations, colour therapy and art to create a playful connection to the inner self and the natural world.
We teach children good body posture, stretching and strengthening exercises, effective breathing, positive thinking and relaxation.
Children help co-create fun, non-competitive classes and use postures as a launch pad for exploration.
Our classes encourage harmonious personal relationships with others and the realization of self.
Classes are divided into 3-6 year olds (30min) and 7-12 year olds (45min).
The younger group learns through interacting with their environment with emphasis on creativity and spontaneous play. It’s an excellent activity for gross motor development and total body awareness.
The older group benefits from experiences that help them cooperate with others. They improve gross motor skills and take on challenges in strength, agility and endurance. Yoga provides a safe haven for them to feel successful, calm and supported.

Beaming Kids School of Yoga
YOGA IS NOT RELIGIOUS – we have taken out any references to Hinduism or Sanskrit from our program. “In July 2013 a San Diego Superior Court judge rejected a claim by parents that teaching yoga at a school is an improper attempt at religious indoctrination. The ruling meant the school could continue teaching yoga as part of its health and exercise curriculum.”
