The Dramatic Benefits of Yoga for Kids
Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface. Yoga postures stimulate children’s imaginations and improve their physical and neurological skills. As the poses build coordination and skill, the nerves and glands are stimulated, the young internal organs are toned and soothed.
Yoga for children is a physical activity in which there is no competition, and self esteem has room to grow.
