Fun Yoga for Trivandrum kids

As told by Smt. K.Uma, M.Sc., R.D (Registered Nutrition Consultant & Certified Yoga Trainer):

When taught in a fun way children enjoy , understand and accept things better, that is what we do in fun yoga classes. The world is going so fast and all are going behind it. Even children are also trapped in that. Here we teach children to become more aware about their body and mind, the precious gift from Almighty and our duty is to take care of it with healthy eating habits, active lifestyle, making our mind happy by doing good things.

When there is competition , fear comes to their minds which in turn spoils their creativity, imagination and their real talents. But through fun yoga classes we teach them yoga in a non competitive environment so that we help them discover their own potential and which in turn they develop self confidence.

Children enjoy doing yoga here because we do not force them to do anything neither we expect perfection. Children enjoy doing yoga through music, dance, stories and games.

Our wholehearted welcome to all loving children to experience the magic of yoga our age old Indian tradition.

Uma’s Nutriyoga is conducting a Fantastic Feb Weekend Childrens Yoga camp at Trivandrum on all Saturdays of February 2015 from 10 am-11.30 am. Fees is Rs. 500/- per month or Rs.150/- per session.

Creative Writing Workshop @Schoolkutti Children’s Library is coming up with yet another workshop to give an introduction to children as to what is creative writing. The session will be led by Retired English Professor and poet Smt. Elsy Satheesan. She will explain how one writer or artist is basically different from another, how every one is unique etc. There will be tips and suggestions for pouring down ideas into paper followed by a writing session. It will be a kind of ‘free-for-all’ session, which means that the children can try any genre they like – poetry, story, essay, a day from their life, can be anything they choose. There will be evaluation or comments based on the language, style of writing and their overall performance. She will also read aloud from her own poems as examples of creativity.

Author reading event at Children’s Library

Archaeologist and Writer Dr. Bina Thomas conducted a reading session for the children of Trivandrum on Jan 3 at Children’s Library. Her first book for children ‘Anaconda in My Backyard and Other Stories’ was released last month at Kanakakkunnu Palace Grounds by popular author Smt. Khyrunnisa A.

In this book, Bina has chosen to write about social issues as she feels that the urban middle class children are shielded from ground reality. She interacted with the children, asking them thought provoking questions and and bestowing them valuable insights on the topic of social awareness without being preachy.
