Kids benefit from yoga & meditation too

Yoga

Yoga and meditation are not just beneficial for adults – children benefit from them enormously.

Here are some advantages of introducing your little one to these disciplines:

  • They develop greater awareness of their bodies
  • They learn how to move their bodies and relate to them in a healthy way, which leads to better body image and body confidence
  • Breathing practises, co-ordinated movement and the awareness that yoga and meditation bring help children manage stress
  • Their sense of focus and concentration increase
  • The non-competitiveness of yoga encourages healthy group dynamics
  • It does not involve screen-time, which is necessary in today’s world
