"Bringing yoga and relaxation to our group programmes has been really valuable, helping young women to build confidence, self-esteem and reslience" Eleanor Wright, Young People Cornwall
Youth Yoga, Wellbeing & Fitness
We have successfully been delivering Yoga, Mindful Movement and Fitness sessions for 8 years to young people in schools, youth clubs and support groups. These can range from taster sessions, weekly courses and one day enrichment sessions.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss bringing sessions to your community. Where possible we will look for funding to support sessions and are happy to collaborate on this.
Youth Yoga Training
Our vocational youth yoga teacher training courses and CPD sessions are another great way to enable practitioners working with young people to share the benefits of yoga and mindfulness. We offer bespoke training sessions in schools and youth organisations as well as full training courses for staff.
Mind Body Reboot
We've teamed up with the Pain Team at Worthing and Chichester hospitals to offer a course to young people coping with chronic pain. The sessions provide a safe, inclusive and fun environment to improve fitness, strength and flexibility.
Our work with the Pain Team have helped us compile case studies, demonstrating the benefits of yoga and mindfulness for young people.
Youth Yoga and Mindful Movement
While yoga can have a reputation as being something that 'hippies' or 'beautiful skinnny women in leggings' do (quotes from our young yogi's!) we aim to break down these barriers to what is proven to be a beneficial practice for stress levels, anger management, confidence, positive body image as well as strength, flexibility and overall fitness.
Our sessions are fun and light hearted, adapted to suits the needs of the groups which range from school groups, young mums and those dealing with mental health challenges to those who simply want to give yoga a try. Sessions can take place in a studio, classroom, gym, youth centre or anywhere that people feel comfortable.
Please see our current timetable below for Sportivate Youth Yoga sessions in Sussex:
With the increase in fast food, computer gaming and a sedentary lifestyle, people are lacking the opportunities to understand about fitness let alone take part in it. As children move up in school PE can take a back seat as 'graded' subjects become more important. As they reach adulthood many can't afford gym memberships and have lost all confidence in their ability to exercise. Our fitness sessions aim to give young people an opportunity to get active in a fun, relaxed environment and remind them how positive exercise can be.
