A leading Parenting expert who specialises in helping parents work with children who may be suffering from anxiety, will run sessions at a one-day course later this month which will teach Parents how to introduce Yoga and Mindfulness into family life.
YOGADOO, which runs children’s Yoga and Mindfulness classes in schools and communities, has announced that Channel 5 Parenting expert and TEDxBristol speaker Jane Evans will run sessions at the first-ever ‘YOGADOO for Parents’ day on Sunday 18th September at the new Widcombe Social Club in Bath.
There are still a limited number of tickets left for the event and during the day, YOGADOO founder and qualified Children's and Adult’s Yoga teacher, Lucy Aston, will run Yoga and Mindfulness sessions which focus on the person as an individual, and as a parent.
Alongside Lucy, Jane Evans will share a body-brain based way of parenting mindfully which brings greater connection and harmony to family life.
Founder of YOGADOO, Lucy Aston said: “I am delighted to welcome Jane to run sessions on the first ever YOGADOO for Parent’s Day. Jane has been helping families for over twenty years, and her advice for families is invaluable.”
"Children are healthier, happier and more able to learn about all areas of life, when surrounded by emotionally regulated adults. I am looking forward to working with the Parents and Carers on the YOGADOO for Parents day later this month." - Jane Evans
"We all live hectic lives. And sometimes it is only when we sit and think about how busy we are that we realise how little time we have to relax. That goes for our kids too. Busy routines of school, homework, extra-curricular activities and play dates can lead to some children finding it hard to switch off at bedtime or even worse - becoming anxious or worried about everything they have to do. During my experience of teaching children and parents together, I was increasingly asked for tips to incorporate Yoga and Mindfulness into everyday life away from the classroom, so that is why we’ve developed this day. We'll teach you really practical Yoga sequences and simple techniques you can use in even the busiest of lives." - Lucy Aston
Parents will be taught relaxing Vinyassa Flow Yoga focusing on different parts of the body. There will be also be sessions which teach simple Meditation and Mindfulness and breathing techniques to start using straight away. The one day course is suitable for beginners, but if you have tried Yoga or mindfulness before, there will be more advanced options. Half the day will focus on the Parent as an individual with a busy life and the other half of the day will focus on the Parent, and teach ways to introduce Yoga and mindfulness into a family’s everyday routine including school, play and bedtime!
The first YOGADOO for Parents/Carers Day will take place on Sunday 18th September and is being held in the beautiful space at the new Widcombe Social Club from 10am-4pm. The techniques you'll learn will be helpful for you as a parent, whatever the age of your child but will be most suitable for children of Primary School age.
Places on the day are limited and no previous experience of Yoga is necessary. All equipment is provided. Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in easily, and bring a packed lunch. Parking is available locally in Widcombe or at Southgate in the City centre which is a short walk away. Course handouts and materials will be provided for you to refer to after the session.
