Yoga is a wonderful way for kids to increase awareness of themselves, others, and the world. Kids’ yoga classes are a fun way to engage a child’s natural, boundless energy whilst encouraging self-expression, imaginative play and instilling valuable lessons in positive thinking.
Urban Yoga is delighted to present a new course designed to introduce yoga to kids aged 5-8 years. Each class is alive with magical journeys, where we meet animals, fly a plane, surf the sea, or grow into a tree – all in the form of dynamic yoga poses that improve flexibility, strength and body awareness. Music, games, props, storytelling, relaxation, visualisation, mandala colouring, meditation and more will keep kids involved and focused while teaching them to relax, stretch and energise while having fun. Research shows that when we are having fun, our brains are more open to learning. The same goes for kids!
Introducing your children to yoga at an early age can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits that are foundational building blocks for becoming a resilient teenager and thriving adult.

Jess Sandoval-Swinbourne is a Rainbow Kids accredited yoga teacher and Ambassador.
Jess was drawn to kids yoga as a mum looking for a positive, life affirming practice, to help her five year-old son who was experiencing episodes of anxiety. Jess quickly discovered the many tools of kids yoga, such as breathing exercises, guided meditation, movement and mindfulness exercises helped him deal with his everyday feelings in positive and sustainable ways. Nowadays they have a regular night time routine of breathing exercises and meditation they do together which helps them connect with themselves and each other before bedtime.
Since completing her training earlier in 2017, Jess has been teaching kids yoga classes at her son’s school, as well as pop up classes, courses and mindfulness workshops for parents, caregivers and children throughout Wellington.
When Jess is not teaching kids yoga, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going for mindfulness walks, going to the gym and of course her own yoga practice!
