The Little Yogi Academy brings Yoga to Children in a fun and free way. Without realising it the little Yogis who attend our little yogi academy are learning techniques such as Breathing, Relaxation, Meditation and Movement with Awareness. They are allowed to express themselves in a safe, non judgemental way that will hopefully equip them to navigate through life with ease in the future, allowing them to reach their full potential.Read More
All our Yoga classes include music of some sort. A younger group will have simple rhymes to music to help us keep in rhythm with our body. As the child gets older the music adjusts to their needs getting more meditative and even repetitive as the child grows. This is to help them experience some stillness from the brain chatter that starts to creep in during preteen years.
All our classes at the Little Yogi Academy have an emphasis on our breath. Each movement is done with some element of breathing – a large bird needs wind beneath its wings or we pretend to be a balloon that needs to be inflated. Yoga means to unite and when we can consciously unite our breath to how we move and how we feel then life seems to flow more easily. Life seems to flow like a breeze for children anyway but they can sometimes fall out of step so a simple breathing technique can be just what they need to bring back some balance to their day
All the Yoga classes at The Little Yogi Academy use fun stories to bring the children along in their Yoga Journeys. The actual Yoga posses are done as a way to help us with our story so they don’t exactly feel like exercise. The stories are designed to follow a sequence that would be similar to a typical yoga class but you would never know. The best part about our Yoga stories are when the children tell their own stories. Recently we played Yoga Simon Says which went down a treat
At the Little Yogi Academy we try to make ourselves as accessible as possible. We currently teach in Sligo, Galway and Dublin and we are always working to bring yoga to children in new ways.

I like my new Yoga Friends we help each other to do Yoga by telling Yoga Stories. I love when its my turn and all my friends do too.
Yoga is brilliant I can do loads of Yoga and show all my friends at school. Sometimes we do partner Yoga and we balance on top of each other. Its really cool.
We had so much fun at Yoga Camp we made magic dream catchers and mine is hanging over my bed.
I don’t usually like to do what the others are doing but I liked The Little Yogi Camp. We spent loads of time outside and we even dipped our feet in the river. We made a fort and I made some friends
