Albert Einstein said “If you want your children to be smart, tell them stories. If you want your children to be brilliant, tell them even more stories!” I would say “Forget about baby Einstein’s. If you want your kids to take time to relax at every level, whilst having fun and tapping into their own creative imaginings then this is the class for them”

Please email to confirm if a class is running as we currently break during school half term and summer holidays and sometimes it is not possible to arrange a substitute teacher.
This session teaches yoga to children through storytelling; some stories are set and some are made up by the children themselves. Becoming various animals such as lions, cats, fish, frogs and dogs, we use fun and imagination to develop a sense of body awareness, improve coordination, core strength, balance and gross motor skills. The class finishes with relaxation and yet another story! This time a therapeutic one. This is a great session for kids who need to let of steam after a day at school and find it hard to sit still; at story time yoga we encourage them not to!
Our Clients Say it Best
At story time yoga it’s a bit like acting out a story,but if one person is acting out something everybody does it, for example: If one is being a bird and they do a shape that you sometimes do in yoga, everyone does it with you. So I think story time yoga is very fun and if you feel shy to do something there is someone next to you who can do it with you. What I really like is that you can choose which character you are.–BY AMINA AGE 8
My daughter really enjoys yoga stories, she is an avid reader and has many ideas for writing her own stories. This class is a great introduction to yoga, using children’s imagination– BY PAOLA PERISSINOTTO
“ Danny (age 5) really enjoyed Liz’s classes which enabled him to let off energy and express himself whilst also helping him to calm down. He was keen to try out yoga poses at home and gained confidence in terms of how he could move physically. He also even adopted some of the mindfulness techniques we tried out at bedtime. ”– BY CATHERINE MOTTRAM.
