Yoga

Jo King or “Yoga Jo” as we all know her, has been teaching Yoga at the Granary Nursery School for the past 4 years. She is British Wheel of Yoga trained and specialises in teaching children.

Jo maintains that Yoga is great for our children – it helps nurture children’s body, mind and spirit.

Regular Yoga practice can improve:

  • Physical strength, stamina and co-ordination
  • Good posture and balance
  • Concentration

It can also have the following benefits:

  • Increase self esteem
  • Help children to breathe well
  • Enable children to discover stillness and an inner peace

The children in Butterfly Class at the Granary Nursery School enjoy a fortnightly yoga session. They respond really well to Jo’s Yoga techniques and thoroughly enjoy the sessions.

So what do the children think?

“Yoga makes me feel terrific!”

“When we relax I can float.”

“I feel happy now.”

“My tummy feels happy.”

“It’s fun being a tree!”
