CHILDREN’S yoga and mindfulness instructor Sarah Colquitt is starting sessions at Seven Sisters Ice Cream Farm in Knutsford.

“I am very passionate about mental health and wellbeing,” said Sarah, 27, from Lostock Gralam, who launched her business, The Little Yoga Warriors, in February.

“I have always wanted to work with children. Yoga offers everything a child needs to become calm and happy, and is a fun activity.

“I now have the pleasure of sharing the beauty and benefits with as many children as I possibly can.”

The sessions at Seven Sisters Ice Cream Farm on Holmes Chapel Road are aimed at children aged four to seven.

They begin on Thursday, September 13 at 3.45pm, and will run every Thursday.

Classes are filled with fun movement to stories, games, breathing techniques and guided relaxation.

In addition there are two themed special classes at a weekend.

Animal Story time Special is on Saturday, September 22 at 10.30am and Halloween Story time Special is on Saturday, October 27 at 10.30am. All classes can be booked directly with Sarah at

Sarah runs sessions for pre-schools, primary schools and clubs as well as private yoga parties.

“I start with a warm-up,” she said. “I find a story that has a life moral and put music and movement to it by introducing yoga poses as part of the story.

"After storytime I deliver relaxation. It helps them with their sleeping patterns.

“Little Yoga Warriors create positive minds and a healthier lifestyle through exercise and fun.

“Kids yoga is completely different to adult yoga. Yoga provides so many skills for life and gives children coping strategies so that if they feel angry or sad they know what they can do to help.”

“It builds their confidence, teaches them breathing techniques and self-esteem.”

Research has revealed an increasing number of young children suffer from anxiety and depression.

“If I can change that in only a handful of children I will be very happy,” said Sarah. “It is quite sad to think young children suffer from depression.”

Techniques learned during classes can be used at home and school.
