Yoga for Kids

Through games, stories, occassion and seasonally theme classes yoga is introduced to children.

The Kids classes encourage and facilitate a reconnection with themselves as a means of play, self-expression, self-development and fun!

Every parent wants their child to grow into a happy, healthy and contented adult.

Our classes are child centred, accessible and inclusive and are non - competitive!

Using a series of games, stories and nursery rhymes the classes seek to promote the physical and emotional well-being of the child in a fun filled and supportive environment. Emphasis is placed very firmly on the `fun` part! Yoga is an excellent system for healthy development and promoting 'wellness' in kids.

It's benefits include:


  • An improved sense of self-esteem
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Developing emotional balance
  • Increased energy and the ability to self-calm

A child who feels good and positive about themselves will be more inclined to make positive choices about other things in their life.


Next series of Classes: To be arranged.



Yoga for the Special Child®

Santosha Yoga Studio is now offering a unique therapeutic yoga method that has helped children with special needs across the world. The program was created and pioneered by Sonia Sumar who had a daughter with special needs herself.

Sonia put together this method in order to help and enhance the natural development of her own daughter and consequently help other children with special needs. Sumar has been teaching this method for over 40 years and her work has received worldwide recognition as the best yoga therapy for children with special needs. 

A yoga therapy session includes singing, eye exercises, breathing, asanas and relaxation. The sessions last between 30-60 minutes.
Blanche Thompson has been teaching yoga for children for five years and is the only licensed yoga practioner in Ireland who delivers the Sonia Sumar method.
