Yoga for Little Bears
Yoga for little Bears helps children grow emotional intelligence by helping them link movement with emotions. Simple postures such as Mountain pose can help a child build the confidence to take a positive stand. Warrior pose support a child's courage, and softer postures such as Resting Butterfly and Child's pose help a child build trust and self-care.
Sometimes children need support in recognising who they are, and how they feel, in order to socialise more effectively, speak up for themselves, and to build the confidence to follow their dreams.

Yoga and personal development
By accepting your self in every posture, you learn to accept yourself in life. By opening your heart in 'heart opening' postures, you learn to let go of the resistance in your heart and let love in. The deep breathing in yoga lowers stress hormones and increases happy hormones, so you will increase happiness and attract more positive experiences. Yoga is the microcosm of your life. The more you love yourself in yoga, the more you love yourself in life. Yoga can be practiced at home or in a group. However you practice yoga, you will learn more about yourself and bring joy and harmony to your life.
There are easy postures for beginners, and more advanced postures for when your body has improved in strength and flexibility.
The added bonus to yoga is it doesn't matter if your young, old, sick or well, you will be able to practice yoga and improve the quality of your life.
Here at Beach Yoga, we intend to love and accept each other just as we are.
