Childrens Yoga

The question is why we always go for childrens yoga and not any other work out.

These days it is very alarming how many children are suffering from psychosomatic disorders such as sleeping disturbances, eating disturbances, headaches and very often wrong posture like sagging shoulders as well as stress related to pressure, competition and aggression in school. Children today are under a lot of stress and strain. Grounding, pressure to compete with other children, endless after-school activities, over-working - it all adds up. And just like their parents, kids today are turning to Yoga to help them relax.

Children's yoga can be great fun as well as being tremendously advantageous to a child's health and well-being. Stretching will help children become more flexible as well as strengthening their arms and legs. Doing yoga helps children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and build up an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that stunning inner light that all children have to the surface. Yoga will also improve a child's breathing and circulation. Regular yoga practice for children will make them calmer, more relaxed and much happier.

Another approach is to create a guided imagination by telling them a story with a calming theme of some sort.

As you know children have the most active mind's eye, they imagine all sorts of things. So when doing children's yoga let them think that they are walking on a green pasture.

You can even let them think that they are butterflies in a beautiful garden. The main idea in here is to instill a sense of peace and feeling of oneness with nature. Children's yoga should be taught more often and in different places. It is important to teach children the meaning of union of mind, body and spirit.
