Kids yoga and teen yoga classes are themed to inspire creativity and have a fun and adventurous experience! All classes are mobile. We would love to share our love for yoga at your daycare centre, after school program or school!
Celebrate your child's special event with a kids yoga party. We combine crafts and jewellery making with yoga too! You can rent our venue located in Runnymede- Bloor West Village, Toronto or we can come to your home!
Breaks are a great time to spend with friends, new and old. Each day at Aqua Elephant Yoga Camp your child will explore movement, play fun games, participate in themed yoga classes, make crafts, learn mindfulness techniques and enjoy nature!
Aqua Elephant Yoga welcomes kids ages 5 and up to enjoy the benefits of yoga through our classes, summer camps, and private parties. Classes are based on traditional yoga poses that are infused with the Rainbow Kids Yoga techniques, which emphasise building community and making yoga fun! Lauren is a certified high-school and elementary teacher (OCT- 2014), who enjoys teaching kids yoga in schools around the GTA. She has over five years experience working with kids from kindergarten to grade twelve, is a 200hr registered yoga teacher (2017), as well as a Rainbow Kids certified teacher (2018). Her goal is to share her passion for yoga with all ages and engage you and your kids in meaningful movement that will increase and maintain overall health and wellness. We are pleased to be one of the few companies offering kids yoga in the West End of Toronto, located close to the Runnymede, Roncesvalles, Junction, High Park, Bloor West Village, Old Mill, Swan Sea, and Parkdale communities.
It is essential for kids to engage in healthy movement and kids yoga helps them to relax, stretch, and strengthen their muscles. In our summer camp and classes we use easy, fun, supportive and creative sequences to encourage your child to try the pose on their own first and then with a partner or in groups because yoga is more fun when we do it together! Partner and group work is not only fun but helps us practice our kindness and compassion towards one another.
Teens are be faced with some difficult topics and thoughts and trying to understand these on their own can be tough. During classes and summer camps we talk about mental health, self esteem, importance of breath and meditation, and how yoga can help manage some of the thoughts and feelings they are having. We also emphasise the transferable skills that yoga has for school, such as increases focus and concentration and an increases athletic performance.
