Some benefits of Yoga for children are:-
-Yoga covers every aspect of Every Child Matters.
-Breathing exercises improve concentration and energy levels.
-Relaxation techniques clear the mind, allowing for better memory retention.
-Postures help recharge a weak immune system and strengthen the core stabilising
muscles of the abdomen and back.
-Posture work helps to tone the body and reduce the rising levels of childhood obesity.
-Yoga maintains a child's natural flexibility, which can begin to shut down from a surprisingly young age.
-Classes develop creativity and self-expression.
-Yoga improves self-confidence through vocalisation techniques and postures that are designed to release day to day anxieties such as separation issues, lethargy and negativity.
-Yoga is a complete form of exercise in a safe and non-competitive environment. It is a particularly good way for children to exercise on rainy days and benefits both their mind through focusing on the breathing and visualisation techniques and their bodies through the posture work.
-The practice of yoga improves co-ordination and balance. It promotes healthy sleeping patterns and allows children to explore their intuitive nature.
The children are led through creative stories and exciting adventures that stimulate their imagination. The postures in these classes are used to help maintain their natural flexibility. Whilst enjoying a variety of safe postures, the children sing songs, play games and work together. The classes involve a wonderful combination of stretches, back arches, forward bends, twists and balances.
