Chakradance™ Kids is a modern day movement therapy modality, woven with ancient healing traditions that nurture the whole child. We have a strong focus on creativity, imagination and self-expression through play whilst developing the physical, mental emotional and energy bodies of the child.
Weaving original music and modern day fairytales that reflect what children of today are facing, along with expressive movement, mandala-based art, meditation and breath awareness, Chakradance™ Kids classes offer children a space where they can truly discover who they are, in the most magical of ways.
Peek inside a class and you will see the children wiping away dragon sneeze with feathers, or moving like wolves. They may be creating art in a magic circle, or reaching up like a forest of trees.
Our classes are playful, creative and full of magic, as this is how children learn best.
WE'RE FOCUSED ON THE WHOLE-child
Chakradance™ Kids lessons focus on the development of the whole child.
Our foundations are based on the integrative energy ‘map’ of the chakra system together with Jungian psychology, a variety of contemporary Childhood Development theories and ancient eastern wellbeing practices.
Each lesson explores key childhood developmental themes, that also relates to the child’s physical, mental, emotional and energy development.
These foundations underpin and drive the key developmental themes in each class.
Our framework offers a holistic approach that supports the development of the individual child. And in this process, we are each contributing to creating a world of balance, peace, and harmony. We believe we are contributing to a greater global and human existence.

THE CHAKRA SYSTEM
Where energy intelligence begins!
The Chakradance™ Kids energetic philosophy follows the map of the seven main energy centres, called chakras. These energy centres are integrated with the physical body, running in a vertical column from the base of the spine, to just above the crown of the head.
The word ‘chakra’ is a Sanskrit word that translates to ‘wheel.’ According to ancient eastern philosophy dating back more than four thousand years, a chakra or wheel is a spinning sphere of bio-energetic energy that emanates from specific areas in and around the body. Each chakra is like a realm, vibrating to different sound and colour frequencies. They contain their own biological makeup and are energetically connected to specific glands, organs and hormones in the body.
In every moment of life, from the point of conception, we are gathering information, processing, storing and responding to our environment, physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. We are geared to survive, this is the basic drive of human existence. However, we are much more than that and as energies, we are also here to thrive, grow and evolve on a soul level.CLAIM YOUR FREE KIDS CHAKRA HEALTH CHECK!
When we view the whole child through the rainbow lense of the chakra system, everything becomes clear.
“The chakra system provides us with a clear map of the whole-being. By following it, we can guide children through meaningful, nurturing, soul evolving transformations and development; with plenty of play and magic!” – Anna Kelly
