Our children live in a hurry-up world of busy parents, school pressures, video games and competitive sports. We usually don’t think of these influences as stressful but often they are. The bustling pace of our children’s lives can have significant negative effects.

 

Yoga can help counter these pressures. When children learn techniques for relaxation and self-regulation they can more readily connect to their inner lives, navigating life’s challenges with more ease. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body positivity with a physical activity that’s both challenging and creative. Fostering cooperation and compassion is a great gift to give our children in an often competitive culture.

 

Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically it enhances strength & coordination, beneficial posture and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calm increases. Children in yoga exercise, play, connect, and develop a close relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings a child’s marvellous inner light to the surface.

 

When yogis in India developed the asanas many thousands of years ago, they lived close to nature and took inspiration from it—the hood of a cobra, the curve of the archer’s bow, the grounded stature of a tree. When children imitate the shapes and sounds of nature they have a chance to experience the perspective of another being. The physical movements introduce kids to yoga’s true meaning: union, expression, and honour for oneself and others. They grow their understanding of their own special place in the delicate web of life.Krista Leonard is a certified Pilates mat work and Hatha yoga instructor with specialized training in Kids’ yoga and Trauma Sensitive yoga. She’s studied meditation in the Shambhala lineage and the method of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. She’s also extensively trained in ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre and modern dance, and has years of experience sharing the joys of movement with people of all ages.

Krista is also a dedicated complimentary & alternative health practitioner. Her one-to-one treatment combines homeopathy, nutrition and therapeutic yoga for all types of health concerns in mind, body and spirit.

Since moving to Ireland from Vancouver, Canada, Krista is happy to be in a beautiful and welcoming place where health and wellness are important to peoples’ lives. And she is so excited to offer her classes to the students at Zenergy. Her classes are a blend of yoga, Pilates and mindfulness, with a focus on postural alignment and breath work. While the asanas and exercises are repeated to assist learning, she likes to make each class a unique and challenging experience for both mind & body.

Krista is happiest when surrounded by nature and loves most anything that brings balance, flow and creativity to life.
