Teaching Yoga to children helps them develop better body awareness, self-control, flexibility and coordination. The children can carry these skills beyond class and into their daily life and routines.
Building Yoga Children
Yoga has been shown to help the attention-deficit hyperactive disorder child (ADHD). These children crave movement and sensory/motor stimulus. Yoga helps channel these impulses in a positive way and can help instill calm, confidence and balance.
Many children have a difficult time with relaxation and closing their eyes while others can't seem to get enough. Yoga for kids encourages relaxation through visualization and brings focus through breathing and listening to relaxing music.
