Yoga

Yoga classes are presented in an imaginative, age appropriate way for each group from Years 1 to 12. The younger students enjoy stories, music and games to learn active Yoga postures. The older students are given more challenging postures and focus on their breathing and the flow of the movements. All sessions conclude with a deep relaxation exercise. Students notice an improvement in balance, strength flexibility and coordination and a greater sense of calm. Yoga naturally enhances self-esteem and respect.
