I am delighted to announce that from April 2022 Ella Bella Yoga will offer yoga and mindfulness classes to teenagers in Roseberry, Newbridge, Co Kildare. Spaces for trials available and i look forward to speaking with the parents. Please send me a message with any queries you might have. Kind regards, Jelena
About Outdoor Classes
Outdoor classes will only run if allowed by Irish Government with strict social distancing in place. Ella Bella Yoga has an active Covid Response Plan which is issued to every parent prior to child attending the class. Class numbers are small and availability is limited.
The structure will remain the same as indoor classes but I would hope to add more movement and introduce sensory activities. All props will be provided. Please follow social media for photos of materials used.
Class duration is 1 hour for all ages.
I would recommend you dress your child for the weather. Cover from the rain will be provided at all times. All information regarding materials required for the class (ie yoga mats, water etc) is issued to parent upon the booking.
Classes are currently Pay as you Go but there is a small fee applied to trial class in person as places are limited.
1 to 1 option is available. Please pm for pricing plans.
About Zoom Classes
I will continue to offer Zoom classes to kids as an option due to COVID-19 subject to demand. I am trying to keep to the original class structure and would ask parents to assist with props prior to the class. These all should be readily available and should not cost a penny (like flowers, leaves etc) and are not compulsory but would be beneficial for breathing exercises.
Structure of the Zoom class: we meet and greet, list yoga class rules and discuss Today’s theme, we ground ourselves, do a warm up stretches and move to yoga pose sequence, we then do breathing exercises to calm us down and finish the class with meditation.
Classes last 30 minutes for age 4-7 and 40 minutes for age 8-12.
I am using Zoom which is an online meeting platform. You will need to download the app to attend the class.
1 to 1 sessions available and price and can be discussed.
I recently introduced a Free Trial policy which provides a free first Zoom class without any obligation to sign up for further classes.
All classes are Pay as Go currently.
Please pm for further details.
About Indoor Classes
*NOTE: currently no indoor classes are permitted
I started small group yoga classes for kids in Newbridge last year and hope to expand to new venue in future.
During the classes, I might have two assistants with me: yogi yorkie dog Laila (who likes to eat feathers) and yogi student Ella (who does 4-7 age class with me and loves meeting new friends).
Class structure varies from week to week, but I try to include a variety of activities including games, breathing exercises, yoga poses, meditation and story reading.
I believe in using props during my classes to help kids engaged and stay focused. I use feathers, glass stones, shells, stones, stickers, scarfs and even Tibetan singing bowl. I also like to use natural props like flowers, leaves, pine cones, branches and stones. Over the last few months kids created beautiful painted stones, flower mandalas, mindfulness jars, breathing buddies, worry monsters and eye pillows for meditation.
If you live in Kildare and have a small group of children interested in trying out Kids yoga, please contact me regarding a slot. Slots would be available during the week (evenings) or weekends (Sundays).
1 to 1 yoga sessions also available upon request and cost can be discussed.
I hope my classes can bring some joy and confidence to children in a warm, friendly and inclusive space.
