Tell me more about this yoga!
During a do-in yoga class we pay attention to:
- playful exercises & breathing techniques
- traditional stretching exercises (from do-in yoga)
- interactive moments
- mindfulness exercises for reflection.
With regular practice children will feel vital, happy and relaxed! The Japanese exercises come from a 'Makko Ho', and are translated to playful exercises for kids. During class the kids can enjoy calming and playful exercises. An example: give a child a feather and let it use the breath to keep blowing the feather up in the air. Like this exercise there are more examples of playful breathing techniques. Children are also invited to interact with each other during the workshop. Do-in Yoga is also a way to look within, so calming exercises are a part of the workshop.
