Y3-4 Yoga Club

Dear Parents,

Having recently certified as a children’s yoga teacher, I am pleased to offer an afterschool yoga club. The club will include learning various yoga postures through stories, music and dance. Mindfulness and breathing exercises will be incorporated within every session. Studies have shown that regularly practising yoga with children can improve their confidence and self-esteem as well as their attention span, academic performance and their ability to deal with stress and anxiety.

Initially, this will just be for Years 3 and 4 and if successful, I am hoping to branch out and offer this to other year groups. The cost of the club will be £20 for six sessions on the following dates – 7th February, 14th February, 28th February, 14th March, 21st March and 28th March. We will be running the club in the music room and children will go straight there from their classrooms at 3.15pm, ready for collection at 4.15pm. They can either change in their classrooms or in the music room. The music room should not be entered until Miss Barnes has arrived so please let your child know this prior to the club starting. Children need to be dressed appropriately either in school PE kit or comfortable loose clothing from home (leggings are fine). I recommend having something warm to wear for when we do our relaxation time at the end.

Children need to bring a yoga mat with them to school. They can be bought on the following website for £1.99.

Twelve places for yoga will become available on School Money today and will be on a first come, first served basis.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch. I look forward to starting yoga on 7th February!

Best wishes,

Miss Barnes
