Thank you for your interest in Kids' Yoga in English.
Kids' Yoga in English is a great way for kids to learn English while they exercise, relax, and discover more about their bodies.
The low-stress approach to learning English offered in this class offers children the building blocks for a lifetime interest in language learning and, equally if not more important, in themselves. The class includes games, relaxation time, dance, yoga, and many speaking opportunities. For students who participate four times per month, homework assignments include preparing for a presentation, such as a monologue, skit, or book report.
If you're interested in the free trial lesson, please contact me by telephone (080-2011-4474), e-mail, or using the online form below.
Be sure to let me know your child's age and which class you'll be signing up for.
Your child should bring a water bottle and towel. Mats are available for free rental for children's classes, but children can bring their own mats if preferred.
Kids' Yoga in English is intended for pre-elementary and elementary school students (1st ~ 3rd grades, 4th ~ 6th grades separate classes). Each month we focus on a different seasonal theme, such as "Halloween" in October, "Christmas" in December, and "Nature" in spring. Lessons incorporate the vocabulary and grammatical concepts introduced in Japanese elementary schools. For students who participate in the class four times per month, homework involves preparing for a once-monthly oral presentation in English. These presentations might include introducing oneself, singing a song, presenting a monologue, or performing a part in a play(!) Yoga postures and meditation ("quiet time") are also introduced in class.
Depending on student ability and need, upper elementary classes may cover grammar and vocabulary necessary for junior high school entrance exams. Yoga offers calming strategies for upper elementary school students facing high-pressure junior high school entrance exams.
