Yoga with Tatty Bumpkin
Each week, Tatty Bumpkin visits St George’s to take the children on her Bendy, Giggly yoga adventures!
The sessions use a combination of storytelling, multi-sensory props, music and children’s yoga postures to ignite the children’s imagination to encourage movement and enhance their development. The progressive programme is fully aligned to the EYFS curriculum, and has been developed by paediatric physiotherapists, yoga teachers, musicians and educationalists, so whilst the children are having fun, you can rest assured that their development is also of key importance.
The children’s essential creative pathways connect while valuable life skills are learnt – fine-motor to help with handwriting, communication to aid social skills, crossing the midline to help with dressing themselves and eating, core muscle strength to enable sitting still, mindfulness and relaxation to help with self-regulation and listening. All whilst they are diving into the ocean with Dolphin, or zooming into space in their rockets, or creeping through the jungle in the search for Lion!
