Hot Lotus is delighted to introduce Family Yoga classes to our schedule. In a world where parents and children are so busy, family yoga provides a wonderful place to spend healthy and happy, quality time together.
No mobile phones, no iPads or TV, no distractions…it’s just you and your children. You might be surprised, but that does not happen often in our busy modern lives.
Family is so important, and time and care are needed to nurture it and make it work; yoga is perfect for this! Children, parents, and even grandparents get to enjoy practicing yoga together and strengthen their bonds while they support each other and have fun.
The Importance of Play
In their constant struggle to juggle all of their responsibilities with the numerous things they need to do to care for their children, parents often lose the art of play!
A wonderful thing about Family Yoga is it teaches parents how to play!
Bridging the Gap
Family Yoga is very special; it is a rare opportunity for both parents and children to observe and learn from each other and a great way to bridge the huge age difference between them.
- Parents get to see how their children learn and how they interact with other children and adults. And children get to see their parents as learners, something that doesn’t happen very often, setting a great example for their children.
- Until a certain age children think that their parents are superhuman; that they never get tired, never run out of time or money, and that there is nothing that they can’t do. It is good for the children to realize that their parents are not perfect.
- There are many poses that the children can do and the parents can’t, and some activities that the children can do better than the parents. This humanises the parent and eases the pressure that their children’s expectations can create.
In addition to all of the other great benefits of Yoga, the classes can help to relieve tension in the parent/child relationship.
Our classes are held each Sunday at 12.30pm. (term time only).
The cost is £10 for a drop-in per adult with child. For children under 7, the ratio of adult-to-children is 1:1, over the age of 7 the ratio is 1:2.
Hot Lotus Members can use their class packs to attend – 1 class + 1 credit and the class is including within Platinum memberships and Hot Yoga unlimited memberships.
Spaces are strictly limited to 12 adults (with their respective children) so book early to avoid disappointment.
No experience required this is a fun class that the whole family will enjoy regardless of their experience or flexibility!
