Would you like to join you child and learn different techniques and meditations to help you feel more relaxed, communicate better and feel more connected?
A fun and engaging group parent and child class to calm, relax and empower your connection with each other. Working on many different themes including compassion, communication and love we will use a variety of meditation and relaxation tools to calm and empower your child and increase your connection with your child.
This class came about as the Inner Space ethos has always been about guiding children to find their own inner space, their inner calm and delivering practical techniques that can be used anywhere to help them find this place of calm and to re balance.
I send home emails with each Relax Kids class to encourage parents to do the exercises with their children however it can be hard to find time and kids often associate specific exercises with classes they go to and are reluctant to do them outside of class if it’s instigated by a parent. Children do experience the benefits of doing a class singularly without doing follow up exercises but I see the most progress with children who continue to do the exercises outside of class making it a way of life rather than something they just do at the weekend.
Bringing you, the parent into the class helps get the exercises home to the whole family, empowering you to make changes as well as helping you to relax.
So having taught many private family classes and on occasion inviting parents into a Relax Kids class setting I’ve really enjoyed witnessing the transformation that can occur when a parent steps into a child’s world. It can be very empowering for a child to share this space with their parent and it’s lovely to see everyone relaxing together during the meditations.

The techniques you learn will be transferable to home situations and you will receive email guidance and help throughout the course and beyond including a weekly newsletter to remind you of the different exercises and how to apply them to very day life.
