Kids these days live in a parent-driven world of activities, non-stop stimulation, high-speed technology and stress. The fast-faced modern lifestyle can have a profound effect on your children’s happiness. How can you help teach them to cope? Yoga is simply a yoke or union of breath to body, body to mind and mind to spirit. The practice of yoga may help your child find balance amidst the constant competitive pressure from peers, from authority and for your attention.
When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease. Yoga allows children freedom of expression in order to create self-esteem through body awareness. It may also enhance their flexibility, strength, coordination, balance and concentration. Yoga allows children to connect more deeply, to experience the natural world around them and fosters compassion, both within and without.
