Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface.
Regular practice of yoga will reap the following benefits:
- Breathing exercises help improve concentration and energy levels.
- Relaxation techniques clear a distracted mind, allowing for better memory retention.
- Postures help boost the immune system, tone the body and strengthen the core, stabilising muscles of the abdomen and back.
- Posture work helps maintain a child’s flexibility, which can slow down from regular use of being on electronic devices and computers.
- Classes can help develop creativity and self-expression.
- Yoga can help improve self-confidence through vocalisation techniques. Postures can help with day-today anxieties such as separation issues, bullying, lethargy and negativity.
- The practice of yoga improves co-ordination and balance it promotes a healthy sleeping patterns and allows children to explore their intuitive nature and spirituality.
