Yoga & Kids

Yoga & Kids - naturally meant for each other. Yoga provides the tools for children to develop into focused, well-balanced, positive and creative adults. It gives them ways to manage their lives and life situations in a constructive way. It recognizes the interdependence of body, mind, emotions and spirit and the need for health and balance in all these layers of our being. 

Through the practice of Asanas, children learn about their bodies, how to sustain a healthy body and keep it flexible and youthful. They learn co-ordination, although it has been said that this is not fully developed until all the milk teeth are lost. Co-ordination leads to a certain grace and poise, which is carried over into other areas of their life and personality. 

Through Pranayama practices, children learn to bring about a balanced emotional state. They learn to manage stress, to become aware of agitation and how to deal with it, and to channel their energy creatively. All of this helps to increase their self-confidence and inner stability.The practices of Pratyahara and Dharana give relaxation and disciplines which develop clarity, improve concentration, attention and memory.
