The philosophy behind the ancient Indian practice of Yoga has influenced various aspects of our modern global society. Unifying the mind with the body and soul to promote well-being is today a world heritage. Yoga invites to be practised by young and elderly without discriminating against gender, economic status, class, or religion.
Introducing the benefits of early childhood education through children's yoga.
Our Yoga, into the Big World.
Yoga for children contributes to personal development. It stimulates a positive attitude toward life to grow and flourish. We believe in yoga as an inspirational force that provides them with a pure mindset from a young age onward.
All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.
Throughout the flowing motion of yoga poses, we bring a message to children that will stay with them. Young kids, girls and boys, between four and fourteen are our audience in this great yoga adventure which brings a lot of knowledge about the wondrous workings of our planet and its unique ecosystems.
We strive for a better world, by teaching the practice of yoga to children.
Children's yoga engages the mind and body through its unique mixture of bodily yoga, which offers a wide range of movements and social skills like playing games. Practising yoga helps develop emotional intelligence, communication, and empathic skills. It encourages teamwork and provides a more relaxed understanding of situations.
Child yoga is a gathering full of wonder.
It's a happening full of story-telling, ringing bells, mimicking, and monkey business. They making art, tickling their toes as a massage and playing a honey bee. All is possible when senses are stimulated and emotions are allowed to flow freely. They capture wonders and are immersed in joy.
It's a yoga jamboree.
Our theme-oriented approach stimulates children's attention playfully, which leads to a positive influence on the child's thinking process. This action develops a right attitude about right and wrong.
The interaction between a child and a yoga teacher is of utmost importance in this concept. The ingenuity and mastering of different educational skills, feeling and dealing with emotions, creativity, and imagination is the silver wire that connects child and teacher in this yoga jamboree. Yoga for preschoolers and youngsters is quite different from yoga for adults. Asanas and pranayama are yoga poses and breathing exercises that we teach in a child-like way, all associated with an educational message.
Beauty in their deepest self
Children receive many benefits from practising yoga.
Practising yoga asanas gives kids a sense of well-being, improves the mind-body connection and encourages a healthy lifestyle. We always presented our child yoga in a child language that made it attractive to them, all in a non-competitive fashion.

Pearls of wisdom
Yoga poses are just physical exercises, but when the philosophy of yoga is adopted, the personal transformation becomes real. Yoga will have a significant added value for those who practice it.
Yoga is an ancient dharmic tradition that focuses on universal values such as non-violence, peace and compassion. Children's yoga finds its roots in the yoga sutras written down by Patanjali. Those ancient texts refer to social and individual disciplines called the "Yamas and Niyamas". According to Patanjali, these two pillars are the foundations of yoga.
What we call today "Buddhism" was in ancient times known as "Dhamma-Vinaya." The word "Dhamma" means Dharma in Sanskrit, and Vinaya is the ethical code of the Buddha. These include moral advice and calls for teaching wisdom, proper insight and right intention.
Generation after generation, these pearls of wisdom were memorized and passed down orally by monks. Later, around 30 BC., in the cave of Aloka in Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks wrote down the recitations on ola leaves. It's called the Pali Canon, and it intends, among others, to help humanity towards healthy and peaceful communities.
Today we have many technological possibilities to communicate and store information instead of ola palm leaves and oral recitations. It would surprise the old monks, sadhus and seers how we save our knowledge in megabytes and how cell phones have fundamentally changed our communication today.
Digital growth connects us worldwide. It's easier than ever to access and share information. Children grow up in this technological wonderworld where they chitchat face-to-face to the other side of the planet in a blink of an eye. "Isn't that easy! Isn't it magic!"
Children love their mobile connections, smart devices offer many opportunities for more engaged learning. Integrated into a yoga gathering, we use face to face communication with children from other countries and continents. These spontaneous chats promote the use of the internet in a good way.
