Kids Yoga - Little Yogis

Instructor: Tanja Ambrock

Yoga comes from India and is a system of study that helps to create harmony. When you
practice yoga regular, you will soon find yourself becoming more aware of everything around you. Many children today are suffering from a lack of connection to their bodies, to their environment, and to themselves.

The word “yoga” means “to link” or “to yolk”. Yoga is about connecting all the different parts of the self - the inner and outer, the body, mind, and spirit - in order to maintain good health. To help you understand this, think about the way in which a car needs to be maintained - all its parts need to work well for it to run smoothly. Similarly, an orchester requires each musical instrument to work in harmony with all the others to perform a great symphony.

Tanja Ambrock is a certified yoga teacher by Yoga Alliance and Kids Yoga by Collius & Barth School of Yoga UK. She has been at SSIS family as a parent for almost 5 years.
