“Children are super-sensitive, fully-fledged people, with high potency antennae which record every vibration within their vicinity, completely and very deeply” – Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
Each child walking the earth is a gift and a beautiful, special soul. By granting them the ability to practice yoga we are helping them tap into their unlimited potential, and providing tools to help them cope with the stresses of daily life.
In a typical class, children will be guided through age-appropriate breathing techniques, stretching, exploration of yoga movements and yoga games. Classes end with visual imagery and relaxation, helping children discover the power of quietening the mind and body.
Research shows that children who practice yoga-based movement, conscious breathing, and mindfulness activities are better able to regulate their emotions, decrease stress and anxiety, increase focus, concentration skills and self-esteem. The studies also illustrate that centered, calm and focused children learn more easily, have better social skills and, in general, are much happier children.
Additional reasons why children should practice yoga;
places emphasis on individual abilities rather than competition
provides a non-threatening and gentle method to increase physical fitness and enhance health and well-being
improves low muscle tone in children
encourages children to express and free their emotions
teaches children how to channel their excess energies
helps children fall asleep easier
gives children the ability to explore their imaginations
provides children with the courage to create their own opinions
assists children to manage chronic illness
