Teach Our Children Well.

After posting the wonderful ‘ Grounded ‘ Yoga film last week i thought it apt to add my very own, It’s a bit of a comparison. I started to think about how versatile yoga can be when we are in the throws of teaching our children, whether that’s as a parent at home or in a class situation with a teacher. The different angles Yoga can take to get the point across are a true inspiration. Please add comments about your own experiences, I’d would love to hear more of your stories. ” And May the Long Time Sun Shine Upon You

    If you have read my previous articles you will realize that i got into yoga through having an eating disorder, this too is a subject close to my heart, i see it everyday, the stress that children go through.

    Cheryl thank you, yes i think the chanting is best started young, because i teach a number of adults who fear it!!mainly due to feeling silly:)
    I love what you say and i find this too, children understand these terms when some adults look at you like your mad!!:) i still use them in all my classes x

    What beauty! I agree whole heartedly with your comments regarding chanting. It should not be ignored as a powerful tool and so often people who teach kids are afraid to chant with them. Kudos to you and all those who chant with children. Sat Nam!

    Although I don't have kids myself I would like to say that this was an inspirational video which I hope encourages more children ( and adults) to take up/learn/experience yoga and how it can help/contribute to/motivate others to learn to relax.
    A bonus was actually seeing you teaching !!
