Geckos are quirky, cute and curious. Agile, able and quick. They’re resourceful and independent, and rather talented too. They can walk on ceilings after all. And so can kids.
When imaginations are set alight children can be geckos… or rabbits or camels or dolphins. They can go on journeys without leaving the room and can achieve the impossible just by imagining it.
Gecko Yoga is about lighting this spark in children of all ages by using the ancient practice of yoga in a fun, engaging and age-appropriate way. Classes are designed for students across the span of the lifecycle of the growing child: from conception assistance to prenatal and postnatal yoga for mums, and for babies and toddlers through to teens.
Gecko Yoga offers
Gecko Yoga’s goal is to fire up imaginations, energise young bodies and inspire eager minds; to teach skills that children will take with them as they grow and learn; to nurture a healthy acceptance of self and tolerance for others; to enable parents to interact in a different way with their kids; to offer yoga teachers the insight they need when working with children; and to help mums have the conception, pregnancy and delivery experiences they desire.
But above all, Gecko Yoga is about kids having fun – healthy, active, imaginative fun – and empowering adults to make this happen.
