Relax Yoga

16th Nov 2019


On Wednesday 13 November 22 lucky children attended a yoga and mindfulness session, funded by Sports NI. The session was led by instructors Owen and Leah from Clanyre Group's, Everybody Active 2020 Programme. 

The aim of the session was to help the children learn relaxation techniques that can be used in any situation to help cope with feelings and reduce stress.

The children were committed and had a great session. Some even got the chance to display their moves on the instructors mat! 

We would like to thank the instructors for a truly fantastic session.

The children had this to say about their experience.


"I really enjoyed the stretching and would like to do it again".


"I liked learning new moves from Owen and it was very nice exercise".


" I liked it all and I got the chance to step onto the instructors mat to do some moves".


"I now know that exercise can be used make me think differently, to help me stay calm. I only ever did exercise before at P.E,".
