Our Yoga Journey
Today's life is busy with jobs, children, family, and friends - we're anchored to our desks, hovering over the kids and slouched over chores.
All these things contribute to shortened and weakened muscles, joint pain, trouble relaxing, and often sleep issues. Our mood, concentration and quality time with the kids are affected.
Yoga helps encourage a positive shift in lifestyle, starting from childhood. Yoga promotes a sense of wellbeing and leads to a better self. We're better students, more productive at work, happier and healthier people with yoga in our lives.
Big Little Yoga is a fun place for babies, kids and mums to create their own yoga journey, and meet other like-minded people.
Life is fun, magical, silly and full of smiles! Be your own person, love yourself, and make Big Little Yoga a part of your yoga journey.
