Yoga for Kids ~ Why didn't we think of this before? September 03, 2013 16:33
What a great pairing...
Like peanut butter & jelly, baseball & hotdogs, Miss Piggy & Kermit.....Yoga & Kids...duh!!
How did we miss this for so long? It may take time for this little partnership to go mainstream and show up in public schools but everyday we notice more and more kids are "OMing" than ever before.
Over-stressed munchkins from toddler to teen benefit from the calming effects of yoga...
Learning to refine their focusing skills in school, extra-curricular activities, doing homework, practicing an instrument.
Discovering how to "self-sooth" when they feel stressed or have difficulty sleeping.
Adding yoga as a therapeutic aid for children with ADD and ADHD that they will use for the rest of their lives.
Teaching children to become more aware of their bodies, feel stronger and more self-confident.
If you have a story to share or an example of how yoga has enriched your child's life we would love to hear about it.
If you're an Instructor who teaches children's yoga, we would love to hear about the changes you may have noticed in some of your student's or the challenges some of them may have had embracing yoga.
