On July 1st, Springfield’s largest Yoga community is opening its doors to a new Kids Yoga Community.
Offering children’s yoga classes 6 days a week, all year round, our KidsYoga Community will help your child to become more balanced, engaged and focused. Here at Revive, we pride ourselves on providing a fun environment where kids can learn skills to help them developmentally, socially and physically. Launched by popular demand, Kid’s Yoga classes are held in our new studio extension. Your little one will be cared for at each and every session by our team of friendly teachers.
Each week we focus on a different theme designed to foster mindfulness, resilience, focus, balance, fun and more. Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page and monthly newsletters for more information on each theme and how your child will benefit. Some example themes we may cover each week include:
Strategies to reduce anxiety
Improving socialization skills
Improving confidence and self-esteem
Feelings of connectedness to peers
Enhancing concentration and awareness
Mindfulness and meditation
Learning about and accepting diversity
Learning emotional resilience
Class Schedule & Fees
Our classes are split into two groups, with age specific lessons for your little one to thrive.
Kids do not need any prior yoga or meditation experience. There will be some partner work, trust exercises and pretend play. In addition to the physical practice of yoga, there will also be a component of meditation and mindfulness in each class to end the session.
Each child should bring water, wear comfortable clothing they can move in, and bring a yoga mat if they have one. Otherwise we have mats they can borrow.

As a mother to two young girls, I felt inspired to pass on my love of yoga so they could feel the benefits, and be equipped with tools to aid their mental and physical health as they grew older.
Teaching yoga has been my passion for many years now - and I have experience teaching children from as young as 18 months old right through to adulthood. My passion in this area has given me the drive to grow - and I’ve done this through education and experience. I have obtained my children’s yoga mastery, leadership and therapy qualifications. From the day I started teaching children, I knew I found my calling!
Hello! I started practising yoga over 10 years ago, but it wasn’t until the birth of my son in 2014 that I tried a Child Friendly yoga class and my heart, mind and body were changed forever. I loved sharing yoga with my little one and making lifelong friends which started me on a personal yoga journey as a yoga teacher sharing the lessons and teaching with other mum and bubs.
As my son grew older and my passion for kids yoga grew, I decided to do my teacher Training and become part of the Revive Kids Yoga Community.
What I love most about teaching kids yoga is to see their confidence, self-awareness and smiles shine brightly from week to week.
My personal journey with yoga began as a child when a curvature in my spine was identified at the age of 10. Since this time Yoga has become an integral part of my daily life. My passion to continue to learn is always edging me closer towards an even deeper understanding of what yoga is and how when applied to our modern lives we can all achieve inner peace, vitality and freedom.
As a kids yoga teacher I like to explain the concepts of yoga through stories and play. By making yoga fun and relevant to the child’s current age and level of experience enables the young mind to understand their own personal toolbox and develop autonomy to make good decisions. In my classes I use yoga props and poses to develop body awareness, breathing techniques for emotional connectedness and meditation to centre and calm.
The highlight for me is seeing the glitter in children’s eyes following class. Giving kids the skills to remain mindful encourages an inner confidence that truly shines!
Gen de Waal
My name is Genevieve (Gen). I'm an early childhood teacher, a mum with a 1 year old daughter and have been teaching kids yoga for 3 years.
I have taught in local kindergartens, the school where I work and also here at Revive.
I love the excitement that children bring to yoga, they have this enthusiasm to want to learn. Being creative with different poses, exploring mindfulness and having so much fun are all components of why I love teaching yoga to children. I'm so passionate about yoga and I can't wait to share my love for yoga with you all.
Kids yoga & mindfulness practices helps to strengthen cognitive, physical, social & emotional development & improve their experience of learning & quality of life. It helps to decrease reactive behaviour & allow a safe secure space to explore and play, free of environmental pressures.
The best thing about teaching kids yoga is to see them develop self regulation skills, emotional awareness and resilience that they can tap into off their yoga mat in daily challenging situations.
I love being able to facilitate that space, and I get an excuse act like a kid again and have FUN, PLAY and stay CURIOUS!
