At Üphoria Yoga, our aim is to provide an environment that encourages active engagement and exploration for all children in our academy.
It is our belief that educators must take each child's interests, needs, and strengths into account in order to successfully co-create a relevant curriculum. We understand that each child is unique and will approach their learning in a variety of ways. We strive to accommodate each type of learner through the activities, equipment, and engaging materials offered.
Our teachers at Üphoria Yoga recognize social and emotional development as the fundamental groundwork for each child's success. Through positive teaching/modelling of these important life skills, it is our belief that children can reach their full potential.
