What happens in a relax kids class?
Relax Kids classes are for children aged between 6-9yrs old, run for 1 hour and are fun and expressive. Designed around each member of the class from the shyest to the most expressive the exercises take children from high energy to calmness, showing them the range of their energy, and how quick and easy it is to affect change.
Classes follow a different theme each week and include the following activities:
DYNAMIC warm-ups and exercises
A combination of warm up exercises, dance and movement help children to improve their co-ordination, develop body awareness.
These exercises boost energy to release endorphins, which improves the Immune system and calms the nervous system.
Drama based activities help develop self confidence through expressive play and imagination based games.
Interactive and fun these games also help with social interaction, communication, focus and concentration.
Yoga inspired stretches help increase flexibility and movement whilst also calming and releasing physical tension.
These exercises also have a direct effect on the emotions and children will be given examples when they can use the stretches
to help themselves.
CREATIVE visualisations, mindfulness and meditations
Deep body relaxations, mindfulness meditations, guided imagery and visualisations help release physical and mental tension, lower blood pressure, calm the nervous system, increase emotional and body awareness and give children the tools to relieve stress and anxiety. Whilst at the same time expanding the child’s imagination and creativity.
Done regularly, these exercises can help promote deeper sleep and a more relaxed attitude to daily challenges.
SOOTHING peer massage
Self or clothed peer massage (on the back) Calming and relaxing, positive touch boosts the immune system, calms the nervous system, helps the production of oxytocin and endorphins, and lowers stress levels.
Delivered through engaging games and group exercises, positive thinking and affirmations are powerful coping tools and help foster resilience.
Learning to view themselves and life in a positive way is a great tool for life and thinking and speaking positively releases endorphins in the brain that make you feel great, increase happiness and optimism.
CALMING breathing exercises
Mindfulness based breathing exercises help to still and calm the mind. Deep breathing helps calm the nervous system, balance the left and right side of the brain and aids in concentration and focus.
Children learn how to use the different breathing techniques to calm and self regulate.
