During the classes for younger children we take them on a journey visting lots of places of interest to them,  it can be to the beach, space, forrest, haunted castle or even undert the sea. We incorpoate movement, visualisation, music relaxation, breath work and have lots of fun along the way. Here is only 1 example of a trip to the undersea to children aged bewteen 3 -9.
