About Me

“To me nothing in the world is as precious as a genuine smile, especially from a child.”
/Rumi, Persian poet/

My Story:

I was always drawn to children. To their ability to be lost in the moment, to truly connect and to truly live. For us adults, it’s a learning curve to come back to our hearts, for our children it’s a natural state.

Yoga allows us to strengthen the connection with ourselves. I have learnt a lot from the best teachers during my studies to become a certified yoga teacher (Vinyasa and Yin Yoga), and later on educating myself about children’s yoga, getting the certification of post-natal recovery therapist, and the list goes on.

My greatest teacher however is undoubtedly my son. He teaches me every day that trying and failing is normal. That you can never say `I love you` too many times. And that practicing yoga together might not be the most elegant and technically perfect practice, but it creates a space for us together where we can jump, laugh, sit, breathe and cuddle.

I am also proud member of the Swiss Kids Yoga Association (Kinderyogaverband).

What happens in a children yoga class?

Classes are held in English. It is a great opportunity for children to learn English, as there are many repetitive words and sentences. Yoga and English learning at the same time.
The groups are set for children between 3-5/6 years and 5/6-9 years.
Classes cost CHF 28.

Body awareness and good posture

Developing body awareness and good posture  is a crucial part of becoming healthy adults.

Mindfulness exercises

Through the mindfulness exercises children can better manage stress and use these techniques in their everyday lives.

Concentration

As they move and replicate what they see, their concentration  is encouraged and their focus is strengthened.

Why kids yoga?

For children this yoga class is a chance:

  • to get familiar with the Asanas (yoga postures),
  • practice their balance, stretch and develop their muscles, while having fun and broadening
    their horizon,
  • focusing on their breath allowing themselves to slow down and understand what their body
    is doing and feeling.

 

What People Are Saying

Zsofia is an enthusiastic yoga teacher who engages the children with creative stories and shows them ways to wind-down by learning easy breathing techniques. The yoga postures are easy to follow and the children have great fun during the class. We arranged a class at our place and invited our friends over. The children practiced yoga and the parents could enjoy a nice conversation in the other room.
