We are very pleased that we offer Children’s Yoga classes here from Autumn 2020. The teacher will be Emma Ropner.
Emma has a history of working with children – as an LTA tennis coach, Mosaic workshop teacher both at her home studio and in schools, a teacher of Creative Writing in a large London Academy and with the Bedale and West of Yore Pony Club where she was one of two ‘camp mums’ who cared for up to 95 children at the peak of the Pony Club popularity, sleeping under canvas for a week whilst they rode and cared for their ponies at Thorp Perrow.
Children love yoga. Our children’s classes will focus on harnessing the natural energy of a child and engaging their curiosity to learn more about their bodies and about their strength, coordination, balance, and good posture.
The class emphasis is always on having fun whilst exploring movement.
Emma teaches the StarChild yoga method which has Montessori principals (and some Steiner ones) behind the teaching practice. Classes follow a ‘container’ where children can learn about yoga whilst feeling safe.
Expect your child to learn basic breaths, meditations, postures and cultivate self-directed imagination, often lacking in today’s ‘spoon-fed’ digital online culture.
Pre-School classes – 3-5 years – Mondays 11:am for 30 minutes. £7 per child
Ages – 6/7-10 – Thursdays 4.15 – 45 mins – £8 per child
Classes run during term time periods only.
Autumn 2020 classes will begin Sept – 7th, 2020 onwards.
Booking is essential

Class: Children’s yoga
Emma trains with StarChild Yoga – June 2020 and will teach this class from September 2020
What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?
The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!
I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.
Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.
Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.
I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.
My advice? Book it now!
I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.
From the first moment of entering the beautiful hall, I knew this studio is something special. A light spacious yet so cozy and calm yoga space is hard to find. Relaxation comes naturally and yoga is so much more enjoyable in these beautiful surroundings. Emma is am amazing kundalini yoga teacher and divine when playing the gong. Her classes are challenging yet respect individual circumstances and make you feel so much better instantly. She is very knowledgeable, connects theory and practice with ease, is full of energy and positive spirit and a joy to be taught by. I truly love my kundalini yoga and gong sessions with Emma
Emma’s Kundalini classes are ‘first-class, a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Emma is fabulous teacher and really opens you to a new way of being while you show yourself self-love and care’
