Calm, Confident, Connected Kids at Santosha
Kids, like adults, face the stresses of a modern world and can feel out of touch with themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. This can lead to poor sleep, poor academic work, loss of confidence and either extreme hyperactivity or listlessness, depending on the child.
In our yoga for kids classes we use mindfulness techniques to engage the children in the process of learning more about themselves mentally and physically. We play games, practice breathing exercises and work to understand ourselves and the world around us.
Children are naturally curious at heart and these classes will endeavour to harness their curious nature by encouraging self - expression whilst teaching them to self regulate, choose wisely and respect the needs of their peers.
These classes are delivered by Aisling Graham who has and continues to work with children in schools, yoga studios, in the community and she also offers one to one yoga therapy sessions.

As well as regular yoga and mindfulness classes Santosha Yoga Studio also offers 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.
Yoga for the Special Child® with Blanche Thompson
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 has experience of working with children for over 30 years and has been teaching yoga for children for seven years. She is the only licensed yoga practitioner in northern Ireland who delivers the Sonia Sumar method. She has experience of working with children and adults with specific needs including Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Multiple Sclerosis, Cri Du Chat, Brittle Bone, Anxiety, Fibromyalgia, Epilepsy, working with adults with learning disabilities and she also teaches in a mental health unit.
