Yoga for children, teens and families to inspire creativity, curiosity and connection!

Yoga for children with Martina is where children can speak and be heard; play and be seen; move and be moved - in mindful and inspiring ways. Where children are encouraged to be happy, calm, and confident in who they are. A fun, creative, and safe environment for children and teens to engage in group activities with their peers as well as family-based sessions. Yoga for children is a wonderful asset to their growth and development. A holistic learning time, cultivates patience, compassion, and respect for the self, one another, and all living beings.

We’ll explore the body’s natural movements through yoga, so that we can increase our strength and flexibility. We’ll discover how to relax our mind and look after our emotions. We’ll unearth our innate creativity through crafts and stories. We’ll learn how to improve our concentration, how to respect and embrace our differences and bond over our similarities. There will be high-energy times and quiet times; musical times and inventive times; laughing times, sharing times and concentrating times. All of that and more will be our yoga time, together. Yay!

About Me

Hi there! I'm Martina. Fascinated by language and in love with the word! I work with children in the Wellbeing sector, teaching kids yoga and plant-based cooking, on an individual and small groups basis as well as kids yoga parties! Having also tutored the 5-9 age group in the past, I'm currently adding a TEFL and IELTS qualification to my bag of tricks! I'm here to offer English classes/ tutoring to both children and adults, yoga classes for children and families and cooking activities!

Bulgarian is my mother tongue, I have native proficiency of English, can hold a conversation in Spanish and currently attempting to speak Portuguese! We'll add a first year of Linguistics while at university, a compulsion for note-taking and to-do lists and a renewed love for poetry writing...that's a little about me and my love for language!

What about the world of children? They entered my life, professionally, 5 years ago and changed it...for the better! Teaching me patience, reminding me to remain curious and to laugh...a lot!

Now over to you... let's learn and grow together!

Reviews (2)

Martina is a lovely and motivating person! It's easy to forget we're in a class with the conversation flowing so naturally. I really enjoyed it! Thanks Martina!
My daughter who is 11, took online Yoga classes with Martina, and she really enjoyed it. Martina had a way to connect with her which worked very well; during the class, when teaching to my daughter Yoga movements, and after the class, as Martina asked my daughter to reflect on a number of subjects which were always excellent and helped her notice and appreciate what was around her. So overall, this was a brilliant experience with a brilliant teacher I fully recommend.
Let's connect! Together we'll explore the best way *for you* to learn and practice English, based on your needs and goals! Whether you're at your ABCs or looking to polish up those business e-mails, I'm prepared to help you! We all learn and connect with language(s) in very individual ways. Some of us are really more adept at picking up new vocab, while others will diligently study the rules first. Whatever *your* way, let's find out together and develop what could turn into an amazing journey into the world of English for you and perhaps a new sense of belonging to the world altogether.

Kenza
Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, Pranayama
A full course of one hour (60 min) with the possibility of reserving for a longer duration (90 min). My classes are mainly oriented on the connection with the breath, the anchoring and the deep muscular work. The lessons are adapted according to the level of the students, and I offer several variations: Hatha Yoga: general category which encompasses most of the styles practiced. "Hatha" means "perseverance", "effort" or even "determination". To be determined to achieve liberation within a certain period. This discipline is in relation with "prana", the vital force and its two components: masculine energies, considered as solar and active + feminine energies considered as lunar and passive. From there was born another interpretation according to which "Ha" & "Tha" would mean the sun and the moon united and balanced through the practice of Hatha yoga. The soul being the sun, constant and stable in its brilliance and luminosity, the spirit being the moon, constantly fluctuating and changing like the phases of the moon. The basic principle of Hatha yoga being to unite and harmonize the opposing energies of the body; the mind and its reactions. We unite the body and the spirit to unite the spirit with the universe. A Hatha yoga class consists of physical postures and breathing exercises. The postures are performed slower and last for a few breaths (30 seconds to a few minutes) to promote anchorage and stability. A real in-depth muscular work. Vinyasa Yoga: the Sanskrit term Vinyasa is derived from 2 roots "Nyasa" which means "to place" and "Vi" which can be translated as "in a specific way". Each movement is linked to rhythm and consciously placed to create a dynamic flow. It is a more rhythmic and powerful yoga which allows to link the postures in a harmonious way with transitions commonly called "vinyasa" and used in particular during the sun salutations. Here we retain the postures in a shorter time than during a Hatha yoga session, but we are still aware of our movements and our alignment. Gentle yoga: for people looking for relaxation, a stretching work inspired by Yin Yoga to release muscle tension and settle into letting go. I invite you to discover Yoga with Hope Arts Studio or to deepen your knowledge if you are already practicing. Meditation: work on the chakras; the 7 main energy centers of the body, often represented by 7 specific colors. During this session, we will focus on a particular chakra to balance and / or unblock it through breathing techniques and guided meditation. We will also explore mindfulness meditation, bringing the moment to the present moment, reconnecting to your “inner self” consciously and without judgment, examining thoughts and emotions. This practice is beneficial for relieving tension and everyday stress. Possibility of private or semi-private lessons in the studio, at home or online. I teach in French and English.

SCHOOL COACHING: PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE BETWEEN 12 AND 25 TO BETTER SUCCESS
• What is the role of a school coach? As a professional, support young people between 12 and 25 years old, in their personal and more particularly school career, when they want to make a change. • So, if the topics covered are orientation, motivation, self-confidence and working methods, it will be all about defining an objective and defining the steps to achieve it, based on tools and specific methods, a neutral and benevolent position and its very specific questions. • It is therefore a question of seeing more clearly, decoding and analyzing in order to manage what is blocking, to learn to go beyond one's limits independently, by relying on internal and external resources and by determining the steps to achieve this. his rhythm. • If the work of the coach with the parents consists in better accompanying them to understand and support their children in their generation, the work of the coach with the young person is different: By listening as well as the tools / suggestions proposed as well as the attention given to the emotions experienced, it is a question of reinforcing his motivation to get involved in his role, to develop the desired skills, in line with his professional project, through the recognition and valuation of his own talents. Thus, it is a question of acquiring and then deploying pragmatic tools and methods in order to: • Support young people with high potential and / or hypersensitivity • Get to know each other better (values, desires, needs, motivations, talents, etc.) • Gain awareness and esteem • Pass exams • Better manage stress and emotions related to exams and gain self-confidence • Better manage your workload, projects, time and priorities • Prepare for exams, optimize your organization, find your creative levers • Improve your relationship with others, your communication, team spirit • Dare to assert oneself while respecting one's values • Build and realize your professional project • Overcome your difficulties, your potential and become aware of the opportunities that may be offered. • Integrate didactic learning skills and self-knowledge, in addition to skills and coaching tools • Support young people on different themes such as social integration, relationship with oneself and with others, the meaning of learning, organization, orientation choices, construction of a project Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions *. (* 2021 study) THE COACH - TRAINER: Trained at the Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League University in the United States, our teacher trainer has specialized and worked for more than 18 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, regularly participating in forums and conferences, and also offering personalized INDIVIDUAL support, with pedagogy and careful methodology as key words, all anchored in a pleasant and jovial moment. ➤ PLACE, TIMETABLE, PRICES • Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Bâle-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon-Montreal. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid, this format also unanimously suitable for those accompanied. • Apart from the traditional advantages of videoconferencing (time savings linked to travel, eco-responsibility, increased scheduling flexibility, etc.), the quality of the session and the interaction remain the same. In addition, the notes taken during the sessions are immediately transcribed on the session chat and are automatically transmitted to you so that you can browse them during and after the session if you wish. • Hourly fees: To support each other & be pleasant to you in this very particular global context and in a spirit of solidarity, the fees have been temporarily reduced. But this fixed rate will not increase after the start of the sessions. • Sessions in English / French • As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round. • Program: adapted to each need

Yin Yoga Class with meditation and breathing practice
I am a certified yin yoga teacher and I offer 1 hour 30 minutes yin yoga experience. WHAT IS YIN YOGA Yin Yoga is a slow paced and passive style of yoga practice where postures are practiced on the floor in static way for an extended period of time ranging from two to five minutes. When combines with internal awareness yin yoga also becomes a highly meditative tool to cultivate inner silence, enhance awareness and explore the deeper realm of our consciousness. PROGRAM Class is very appropriate for beginner and advanced practitioners. In 1.30 hour class we will start with 15 minutes guided meditation then we will continue 60 minutes with yin yoga poses. These poses mainly work with lower of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine and focus on facia. The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. We are opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. We will close our practice with breathing exercise such as Nadi Shodhana, Ocean Breath. Breathing exercises can have an effect on your state of mind, improve cognitive function and reduce symptoms of anxiety. The last 15 minutes we can have tea, my hand made glutem free sweet and talk about yoga, life, meditation. WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING • Very big smile and positive energy • Yoga mat- If you don’t have no worries I have enough • Comfortable clothes

In my eyes, it is essential to practice and be well trained, it is necessary to embody mindfulness, to open up with kindness to others, to welcome them as they are in the stage in which he is. I like to share this rich practice, but also always learn from children and adults alike. I have been practicing yoga for 14 years and meditation for 8 years. I first trained to share my daily activity with my children. By opening me to their inner world, it opened a door of resonance in me and showed me the way to teaching. Since then, I have trained for children in the "calm and attentive as a frog" method, for which I am a certified instructor for 4-11 year olds and 12-19 year olds. Subsequently, I trained parents, teachers and trained in mindfulness meditation (MBSR: mindfulness based stress reduction, method developed by Jon Kabat Zinn) at the Free University of Brussels. I am a certified MBSR instructor. I also offer individual or parent-child support adapted to the needs and specificities of each child.

My yoga class - combination of cyclical dynamics and statics, with a wealth of experience delivering yoga lessons to a variety of individuals, with different needs, ensuring to accommodate their individual needs. The background of personal education in yoga: I have 2 main directions(yoga schools) that contributed to my becoming a master of yoga - Universal yoga and Ishvara yoga. A deadly combination that shaped my own yoga style. I don't like wasting time on a yoga mat. So if I decide to stand on a yoga mat - we will work pretty hard, without sentiments. Class level: Physically - quite hard (but not deadly hard :) ) Technically - average (first of all, the training should be healthy and safe for your joints) Party hard and do yoga!
