Lola’s Yoga and Storytelling Workshop

For parents, and their children aged 3 to 9yrs Yoga through storytelling is a great way to support children's wellbeing. Yoga can assist in enhancing a child's physical, social, and emotional development. Some of the benefits include strength and balance, an increase in self-esteem and a decrease in anxiety. The storytelling aspect of the workshop enriches the children's imagination and provides both a visual and audio learning experience.
