Tatty Bumpkin and Baby Bumpkin are yoga inspired classes that take children, babies, young people and their carers on amazing adventures.
We use our bodies and our imaginations to take us far away on wonderful story adventures. Tatty Bumpkin yoga class is a world apart from adult classes; it is more spontaneous, more creative and a little noisier! It is taught in a different way, using a multi-disciplinary approach that provides learning opportunities to stimulate the senses, sharpen their minds, develop their muscles and co-ordination, extend their attention span and bring them a sense of calm. A session may incorporate- story telling, singing, music, movement, dancing, counting, games and problem solving, as well as postures and relaxation. Even the name of the postures are different, often taking their inspiration from nature, weather, plants and animals.
Each class follows a lesson plan with specific learning objectives. The class is inclusive and non-competitive, ideal for boys and girls. The postures will be adapted to suit all ages, so everyone can succeed. Importantly our sessions include lots of different exercises, not just yogic ones which help to encourage early concentration skills, imagination and self- confidence. Hence it not only develops physical skills but also learning and social skills.
