Yoga Time!

04.08.2020

Here at Leigh’s the children love doing yoga and as the weather has been so lovely recently we have been taking our yoga outside!!! Our outdoor space is always used just as much as our indoor one and we pride ourselves on the fact that all of our activities can be done in both environments.

Yoga is a great way for the children to come together and have relaxation time. They gain coordination and listening skills as well as improving their concentration and ability to follow instructions. The children are great at remembering what we do in Claire’s yoga and always show their friends so that they can join in on the fun too!

Introducing yoga helps establish healthy habits at an early age. Yoga can enhance strength, coordination and flexibility, while encouraging positive body awareness and actively encourages self-esteem. It can reduce anxiety and stress and promote a sense of calmness at nursery.

We are excited to welcome our lovely yoga teacher Claire back in September. We have limited places for our yoga sessions so if you’re interested please get in touch with your child’s nursery ASAP to secure your place. Our yoga classes take place on a Wednesday at our Heddon and Gateshead nurseries and a Thursday at our Newcastle nursery. If your child doesn’t attend on these days you can still book your child in and drop them off for the session so they don’t miss out!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
