Girls Yoga is back, and now on the schedule monthly!

This is a unique opportunity for all 6-11 year old girls join a 2 hour yoga and mindfulness immersion-come retreat each month.

The girls will learn empowering tools and skills to develop and maintain a healthy, flexible, and balanced body and a happy mind – the immersions incorporates a variety of yoga poses with mindful movement, breathing exercises, relaxation practices, and social-emotional techniques in a play-based environment..

Each month will follow an insiprational theme and include yogic philosophy, stories, music, dance, games, art, and partner work in a collaborative, creative, and memorable way. The girls will receive helpful yoga, breath, wellness, and meditation practices that will free tense bodies, calm busy minds, and bring a new level of self-awareness and confidence that inspires a positive way of being.

Plant medicine cacao (ie; a healthy hot chocolate) will also be on offer. Simone uses the highest quality Peruvian ceremonial 100% pure artisan – a superfood full of amazing bioactive compounds that are good for you; iron, potassium, and magnesium to name a few.

Led by Simone Grant (a certified and experienced yoga teacher for both adults and children) this is  a special experience full of all the yogic goodies any wee goodness could ever wish for.

Simone has been sharing her love of yoga with pre-school and school aged children across Whanganui over the last five years in both a schooling environment, and at her city studio, and in nature.  Read some of the reviews below:

“My granddaughter Poppy and I loved attending. Poppy looked forward to it every week and was so sad it had to end, she has some wonderful yoga tools to take with her as she begins school. I highly recommend it, much thanks Simone.”
– Kim Gooding, Poppy’s Nana

“Talulah was a little shy to begin with but after four weeks she has absolutely blossomed and what Simone has taught us is seriously helping deal with emotions. She can’t stop talking about ‘oga’ and showing Dad all the poses and breathing exercises – ‘Bumble bee’ breath is a favourite and we use it together to settle and relax before bedtime.”
– Carly Mcalorum, Talulah’s Mum

“Thank you so much Simone for our wonderful yoga and mindfulness sessions this year – the children always looked forward to you coming. It was amazing to watch the children transform from busy to peaceful, calm five year olds. The different themes and messages you shared throughout, fitted perfectly with our school values and virtues programme.
– Dinny Harrison, New Entrant/Year 0 Teacher, St Johns Hill School

“Thank you so much for sharing your light, love and passion for yoga with nga tamariki Simone. Your kind, gentle and fun loving personality makes you the perfect person to brighten up our day.”
– Fiona Penn, Head Teacher, Whanganui Montessori Pre-School

“Simone is wonderful with our children when she shares yoga. So peaceful and calm and our kindy children are captivated by the wonderfully imaginative story lines and themes built into the movement. Highly recommend Simone as an instructor for children.”
