So what do people say about Shine Kids Yoga Classes?
"Oli has been going to yoga for nearly 2 years now and loves it greatly. He likes the stories and adventures and enjoys 'let's play yoga' at home, having myself and his brothers doing the positions (his favourite being the tree). He leaves the class calm and able to concentrate for longer on an activity after doing yoga. As a parent I love the work Jackie does with Oli and he always leaves smiling and enthusiastic and can't wait for next week"

"I love coming to yoga because it helps me do things that I can't do sometimes,like putting my feet up. So thank you very much for teaching me what is the true meaning of yoga"
Alejandra, Age 9
"The children really enjoyed the sessions and came back to the classroom quite energised. They did not know that they were doing yoga movements as they were pretending and imagining, which is what young children do best. The staff all felt a few centimetres taller after doing a workshop session too? It was a great experience which we would repeat, without hesitation."
"The children have really enjoyed their Yoga classes with Jackie, It has been great to see them using their imagination in such a creative way, and it has also been good to see them participate in a physical activity in which they have all experienced success."
"I enjoy yoga and it has helped me a lot with my SATs. Since I’ve been doing yoga I have improved a lot with my SATs, thank you. Yoga is a great activity and it helps me to calm down, relax and since I have been doing yoga it has helped me to not worry and chill. I appreciate all the yoga you have taught us, I will try and do it in the future maybe when I’m older I’ll be like you teaching yoga!"
"Yoga with Jackie has been amazing, from day one Helen has responded with enthusiasm. From becoming all sorts of animals at home (noises and actions) to recreating the story adventures with her friends, the images and positions stay with Helen and fire her imagination.
The classes are relaxed and fun with great interaction between the children, parents and Jackie as we go traveling on our adventures. Physically it is fantastic exercise, for us all! Emotionally the breathing exercises in particular allow us to calm our frustrated two year old with ease giving her much more control over expressing her feelings and actions.
As a family we are all firmly converted yogis and look forward to continuing our journey with Jackie. Mum of Helen from 18 months, now 3 attending Parent & Preschooler Class"
