Gosh! What a fantastic and busy summer term we have had at Starshine Yoga! We always love the summer term as it allows us to take our yoga outside which the children love...
And on those really hot days we take a break with an ice lolly!
Once again, we have had lots of new children join this term including Lily, who is one of our younger members of our Tuesday afternoon class. She may be young but here she is confidently leading the sun sequence...
So many new members have joined that we are now oversubscribed for our Tuesday class and have a waiting list!
But don't worry, we are looking at running an extra class on a Tuesday afternoon!
This term we ran another yoga party, this time for Keira who turned 7!
We have been working with a community group funded by charity grants called Time 4 Autism which supports children with autism and their parents.
Here is Owen and his mum Tracy working brilliantly together in Boat pose:
At Glastonbury Thorn Infant School we spent this term working with the youngest students, Foundation Stage who are just 4 and 5...
It is a pleasure working at Glastonbury Thorn every Friday afternoon and we are so pleased that they have been awarded with the 'Outstandingly Happy School' award, the first infant school in the country and first and only school in the local authority to achieve this!!
In June we were thrilled to be asked to run the children's yoga session in Campbell Park for the International Day of Yoga.
We had some of our current yogis come along and lots of new faces too which was lovely to see! We learned yoga moves, played games and did some relaxations.
The parachute was a big hit!!
We have been busy this term running some more fantastic mindfulness, well being and yoga sessions for corporate teams. One of these was Clarity, a local brand strategy and marketing communications agency. What a great, enthusiastic team to work with!
And what fantastic feedback we had from team Clarity. We will now be running yoga sessions for them every month.
Clarity is not the only new team we have been working with this term. We have also started a new yoga session for the teachers of Giffard Park and Willen Primary School.
We would like to congratulate Max, who has been coming to our yoga sessions for 2 years and now has his celabratory Starshine Yoga t shirt. What an experienced yogi he is and a brilliant role model for others, well done Max!
Football may not be coming home but we were pleased to see the England football team recovering after their world cup matches with yoga sessions! We know how good yoga is for strengthening, toning, increasing flexibility and helping to prevent or recover from injury.
We love receiving feedback from our students and parents and were thrilled with this message from one of our mum's, thank you Lucy! :-)
Have a great summer everyone!
