Put your kids on the fast track to health this sum­mer by sign­ing them up for yoga classes with Yoga Kids. At this cen­tre, trainer Shrad­dha Se­tal­vad fo­cuses on teach­ing it as a dis­ci­pline rather than as a class. Chil­dren can ben­e­fit from the 3Fs pro­gramme which com­prises Fit­ness, Fo­cus and Fun, and is a holis­tic com­bi­na­tion of the body, mind and en­ergy. It helps in im­prov­ing work­ing ca­pa­bil­ity in a group, phys­i­cal fit­ness and strength­en­ing the mem­ory power. This pro­gramme has been de­signed for chil­dren so they can en­joy yoga, and not just treat it as a form of ex­er­cise. Aasanas and breath­ing are first in­tro­duced through the medium of sto­ries and grad­u­ally a se­quence is cre­ated. They are also taught San­skrit ter­mi­nol­ogy for num­bers and names of asanas. Chil­dren who can­not at­tend the course can buy yoga DVDS by Se­tal­vad. HIGH­LIGHTS Yoga helps strengthen the child’s im­mune sys­tem. The Yoga Kids kit which is part of the course com­prises flash cards, Surya Na­maskar flip books, a spe­cially il­lus­trated Yoga Kids text book— an aid to help chil­dren delve deeper into the sub­ject. COST Rs 2,800 for eight weeks WHERE City Stu­dio, C- 4 Chi­noy Man­sion, War­den Road TEL 9820349688
