What is children’s yoga?

 

Children’s yoga presents a holistic and playful approach to promote and strengthen a child’s personality. Children learn different body postures – so-called asanas – in a non-competitive environment. This not only creates greater body awareness and improves their physical well-being, but also counters the mental and emotional pressures of everyday life. Through yoga, children learn about their own and others’ boundaries. They are allowed to connect with their own emotions, are encouraged to develop empathy for others, and are given tools that help them navigate life’s challenges more easily. All this happens in a playful, creative environment that respects each child’s individuality and developmental stage.

Why Antje?

 

I am fascinated by children’s imagination and innate creativity. The ability to see the remarkable in the ordinary, and to accept the unusual as part of the everyday, is a gift for life! As an experienced and passionate storyteller, I help children tap into and use this strength. My lessons are experience-oriented, letting each child test and improve their mental, physical and emotional competencies. A trusting environment encourages them to try out new things. My magical journeys allow them to experience calmness and a sense of security. And of course, all of this happens in a non-competitive atmosphere, where children are given full rein to their imagination!
