Make the world a better place, one child at the time!

Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children. Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. ⁣

Also Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children. A growing body of research has shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.⁣

“I just finished the Kids Yoga teacher training course at Ganapati School of Yoga. I had the most wonderful time with the most wonderful people. The place is so beautiful and Claudia was born to do what she does. 

The course was delivered in the most warm hearted, comprehensive and fun way! I learned so much and in particular I loved all of the powerful breathwork exercises. 

I am so inspired after it and I really can’t wait to bring it all to the children I work with now. Thank you so much Claudia, I am so happy I  found you!  x”

“Having just completed my Kids Yoga Teacher Training at Ganapati School of Yoga I can't recommend it enough. It was such an inspirational and uplifting course full of like- minded people. 

Claudia allows everyone to share their own knowledge and expertise to further enhance the course and create connections with one another. The course comprised  theory, breath work practice, acro Yoga, loads of fun and teaching practice. 

It is clear that Claudia wants to share and spread her passion for Yoga and promote health and happiness among young people and everyone who enters her studio. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“

“I'm absolutely buzzing having just completed my Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Ganapati School of Yoga. The course, facilitated by the wonderful Claudia Escobar, has given me the tools and confidence to plan and present a yoga class of my own. 

It was practical, informative, and full of humour and creativity. It was invaluable to meet with like-minded people from such varied backgrounds, and share ideas and tips with each other. 

The positivity was palpable from the very start to the end of the course. Claudia and her team have a very special school that offers so much more than yoga. 

I would recommend this course to anyone, no matter the stage of their yoga journey. I can't wait to introduce yoga, and all of its amazing benefits, to the kids in my school and make it a regular part of their wellbeing.“

I can’t recommend it enough! 

The course was so professionally run by Claudia and Pablo. They kept us smiling with games, class plans, kids poses, and we couldn’t stop laughing while learning Acro Yoga! 

I feel so prepared to go out and share my new yoga classes with children and hopefully make a positive impact on those that need it 🥰”

“What a fantastic studio and school. Not only am I lucky enough to teach in such a beautiful space the last 2 years I’m also so lucky to have shared my yoga practise here for years. 

I have had the joy of meeting fantastic people, attending workshops and creating friendships for life. I also had the pleasure of just finishing my kids yoga teacher training! 

What an amazing atmosphere taught by Claudia, she’s a fantastic educator, mentor and overall wealth of knowledge. She has a talent for holding the space, making you feel safe and seen.

Words don’t describe how I feel! Couldn’t recommend enough!!”
