With Kids Yoga, we're happy for parents and children to share passes (5 class, 10 class and 20 class pass). Email us and we can setup your account for the whole family to practice yoga.

Kids will be introduced to asanas (yoga postures), breathing techniques (pranayama), mindfulness, affirmations and guided relaxation. The practice will support focus and concentration as kids move through the final term of 2019.

Erika has themed this after-school program; 'An adventure through Aotearoa and beyond', and has weaved Maori words and values throughout each class. All things aside, the main emphasis is on FUN and collaboration – often led by the children’s own ideas and imagination.

An Adventure Through Aotearoa and Beyond!

Week 1: Rangi & Papa:

We'll start our exploration between land and sky, meeting some Maori legends along the way! 

Week 2: Under the Sea:

We'll start at the beach and flow beneath the waves with the other ocean creatures. 

Week 3: Adventures in the Atmosphere:

Where will the breeze take us?

Week 4: Blast off into [Kanuka Yoga] SPACE!

We're brave astronauts venturing into the great beyond.

Week 5: Love for Papatūānuku:

We'll come back to Earth to practice gratitude for the planet and all our friends on it. 

We'll be sending children home on the last day with a little Polaroid token to remember their yoga practice at Kanuka Yoga.

Each themed class will follow a consistent structure to allow children to become comfortable and relaxed with the space. Here is an example of the basic class structure:

  • Connect (to each other and the class theme)

  • Move (dance, yoga postures, sun salutes)

  • Play (with balancing, with each other)

  • Relax (mindfulness, guided relaxation)
