FAMILY & ADULT YOGA
We are online!
Our class offerings are available online! Classes are interactive streaming live from my lounge room into yours! All you need is a phone, tablet or a laptop as well as a safe place to practice yoga.
The current environment can be very stressful for a lot of families, with so much uncertainties around our future and health. Some of us may be stuck at home, juggling working from home while homeschooling our children. Some of us may be self isolating or recovering.
Whatever it might be, our level of stress can weaken our immune system, making us more susceptible to illnesses. Stress could even slow down our recovery. Stress could also worsen existing mental health issues.
This is where yoga can help. The poses, breathing techniques and mindfulness exercises can help us slow down, become more centred and instil a sense of calmness amidst the chaos. Doing it with the family may even help diffuse cabin fever from being stuck at home together!
Please refer to Bookings and Registration tab for more details.
Family yoga or parent and child yoga delivers the same mental and physical benefits as any other yoga classes: enhanced flexibility and strength, refined balance & co-ordination, improved focus, peace of mind, relaxation and a positive self-image and much much more!!!
Our family schedule these days are jam-packed with work, school, homework, soccer practice, dance classes, birthday parties, not to mention the laundry, cooking and cleaning up!!!! As a result, most families are over-stressed, are just plain busy and probably not spending enough quality time together.
Family yoga classes offer families the opportunity to come together and re-connect with each other:
By engaging in yoga, parents are demonstrating to their children the importance of prioritising their mental and physical health. Remember kids learn from watching their parents!
Parents are given the opportunity to work with and learn alongside their children or learn from their children as the family learns different types of yoga poses and meditation or breathing practices
Allows family members to better understand each other and communicate in a positive way
Parents and children can relax and have fun together - creating memories and forming stronger bonds
Spending time together without the disruption of technology shows our children that we are prioritising them and that being together is important.
Book now for a private class for your family or group of family friends.
These sessions are also wonderful for bringing in the family into schools and Early Learning Centres to help form collaborative relationships, helping build a community focussed on health and wellbeing!
Family Yoga for ELCs
Family yoga is the perfect opportunity to get the parents involved! Perfect for forming and maintaining the educators' and centre's relationship with the children's family! This creates a welcoming environment for parents and educators to collaborate together. After all, children thrive when families and educators work together in partnership to support the children's learning.
Family yoga is perfect for those special occasions such as Mother's Day, Grandparent's Day, Family Week, Children's Week, Father's Day or any other events that the centre may be exploring.
Family yoga can also help with building a community in and around the centre. It helps families meet other families that they wouldn't otherwise meet during the busy routine of drop offs and pick ups.
Classes involve partner yoga poses, group yoga poses, breathing exercises, games, massage, and relaxation. Most poses are done within the family unit to help enhance connection within the family, with others done as a whole group.
At Namate Yogis, our aim is to help you relax the body, find a balance between strength and ease, and quieten the mind to find stillness and peace.
A regular practice of yoga helps enhance flexibility, strength and coordination, improve energy and vitality, maintain a balanced metabolism, improve cardio and circulatory health and protect from injuries.
We are passionate about sharing the gift of yoga and helping you apply what you learn on the mat, off the mat.
Our adult yoga classes are based on Hatha Yoga with Vinyasa influence. Each pose is linked through the breath while at the same time ensuring the integrity of the alignment is maintained.
Each class contains a balance of standing, balancing, twisting, forward and back bending poses. Our adult classes run for 60 minutes and consist of asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and savasana (relaxation). The aim is to help students apply what they learn on the yoga mat, off the mat.
Our style is suitable for all levels (beginners and intermediate).
Book now for a private class in the privacy of your own home, or you can invite your friends to join in.
Adults yoga is also perfect for rewarding staff for their hard work or can be used as part of your health and wellbeing program, where wee come to your work place on a regular basis.
Yoga for Educators
Being an educator can be quite stressful. The more we look after our own physical and mental wellbeing, the more we are able to give to the beautiful children under our care. As they say - "you can't give from an empty cup".
So why not show your appreciation to your hard working educators by rewarding them with a relaxing yoga class? Classes can be held in the centre - at the end of the day or during staff meetings. Smaller classes can also be held at shorter intervals during the day to ensure your educator / child ratio is maintained at all times. For example, 3 x 15 mins classes during lunch breaks.
Yoga classes can also be used to help with team bonding. Where this is the aim, the class will involve fun partner and group yoga poses. Expect plenty of fun and laughter, finishing up with a well deserved relaxation.
