KIDS YOGA Benefits
Yoga is something children can practice anywhere! The breathing, the concentration and the poses, lead to constant self-discovery. A child's yoga practice is an opportunity to experience play and focus without worrying about being wrong. Yoga is for everyone! Yoga is an option for children who shy away from physical activity or group activities and it helps athletic children excel in other physical activities and sports.
Enhances Physical Flexibility
Yoga promotes physical strength by teaching kids to use their muscles in new ways. Whether a pose is done standing, sitting, or lying down, each one can challenge various muscle groups while helping the child become aware of his body and how efficiently it's made to function.
Refines Balance and Coordination Balance
This is a key element of yoga. Balancing poses promote mental and physical clarity along with stability. Even if a child has difficulty standing on one foot, she learns mental and physical balance if she can stay calm when she falls and when she gets up to try again. As children learn to improve their physical balance they become filled with a sense of accomplishment.
Develops Focus and Concentration
Practicing poses encourages children to clear their mind and focus on one thing. As a result of this single thought to achieve a particular pose or stay balanced, yoga teaches children how to focus and concentrate better in school, resulting in better grades.
Boosts Self-Esteem and Confidence
Yoga practice helps to bring about learning on an experiential level. It teaches us to persevere, be patient, while working toward goals. When a child masters a pose, it naturally gives him confidence and self-esteem.
