The Benefits Of Children’s Yoga Therapy
Children’s Yoga Therapy provides therapeutic yoga tailored to individual needs. Our fun, creative approach to yoga can be very helpful to children whose bodies are still developing. Through animated poses and basic stretching exercises, children can gain strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness. Breathing and visualisation techniques teach kids how to focus, relax and develop self-control.
Our Yoga Therapy sessions also address a range of special needs and conditions including, autism, downs syndrome, sensory impairment, developmental delay, physical disability and dementia. Yoga is life changing and brings with it a greater sense of wellbeing and independence to all those practice.

Angela Nelson.Yoga Teacher & Principal
My son attends the classes with Angela every week and I am delighted to say I have noticed a massive improvement to his well being. Angela is great with the children and I can’t praise her enough. The classes are brilliant and lot’s of fun. Highly recommended.
My son was having problems with older children at school. The sessions at Yogai have helped him to put things in perspective and the issues he was facing have now ceased. Our household is much happier as a result.
Regular yoga sessions with Angela has enabled our daughter that suffers with a rare muscle disease to grow not just in strength and flexibility but also in well being. Angela has helped her to be more relaxed, be herself and grow in confidence. She is an amazing teacher and I would recommend Angela to anybody considering children’s yoga sessions.
Finally, bedtime is no longer a battleground. The calm that Angela has brought to our home is unbelievable. My autistic son was being disruptive for many months until he started the classes at Yogai. I’ve seen a massive change in him and he’s so much more relaxed and happier.
I’ve struggled with my weight and depression most of my life. I’ve lost two stone to date and managed to keep it off. I’m a lot more active, comfortable in my own body and what has really surprised me is my skin. I have suffered with acne for years and it’s almost cleared up. I have a much more positive mindset and feeling happiness again.
I have been sending our three children to Yogai classes with Angela for the last six weeks. Tom and Hetty have become a lot more well behaved and thoughtful towards one another and to myself. David was having issues with his weight and has lost over 4lb’s. He has stopped going to the cupboard for treats and is doing a lot more exercise including playing football with his friends.
