Certified Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher Jasmine Gow shares the tools of yoga with Rangiora children to focus their busy brains, stretch and strengthen their growing bodies and expand their eager hearts! Each course is adapted to suit the needs and interests of the children participating. Sessions progress in challenge over the course and the repetition of certain sequences and exercises will provide children with skills they can practice in between classes.

Yoga sessions are playful and lively; full of creative yoga movement, fun games, interactive storytelling, modern music and relaxation. Each session follows a loose structure starting with a time for us to connect as a group, followed by active warm ups, flowing yoga sequences, challenging postures and quiet time with plenty of joyful games and activities throughout! As a trained and registered primary and early childhood teacher, Jasmine designs courses to support children’s emotional, physical and social well-being in line with the NZ health curriculum.

What should my child bring to the session?
Please bring a drink bottle and a yoga mat if you have one (there will be a limited amount of spares available).
Can I stay and watch?
You are welcome to stay for the first session, after that I’d recommend your child participate independently. Children often get something quite different out of the class without their parents present, as they aren’t tempted to either "perform” or withdraw, and instead can be more present and form connections with the other children in the class.
