This January, Young Sussex Nursery have added weekly Yoga classes in their pre-school rooms to their class repertoire which also includes Music and Movement, Forest School and Cooking classes. All classes are free of charge to parents and run by external professionals.
Yoga at an early age encourages confidence and body awareness with a physical activity that is non-competitive. The classes are run by Cassie who is British Wheel of Yoga trained with over 12 years experience teaching.
Julia Cross, Group Manager at Young Sussex says; “The children absolutely love their Yoga sessions. They practice balance postures to improve concentration, a variation of sun salutations for children to develop their physical skills, and a couple of other postures that change weekly. Simple breathing exercises for mindfulness and a relaxation at the end ensure even the most energetic children get a few minutes of quiet time to unwind and calm themselves.”
