Yoga for Kids
Yoga is great for kids. They find it fun and at the same time challenging. They enjoy the movement and also like the way it teaches them to relax. We find yoga works with kids who like other sports as well as those who are not that keen on competitive sports. Both groups of kids really enjoy doing yoga poses.
The proven benefits of yoga for kids include:
- better grades
- anger control
- mental focus
- de-stressing & calmness
- less disruption in class rooms
- less dropping out due to stress (see link below)
- less substance abuse (due to less stress)
- better self image and optimism.
Teachers in schools have also reported that classes are much easier to handle when they do short yoga breaks.
Nearly half (47%) of Australian students feel very tense when they study, compared to the international average of 37%.
There’s more about why yoga should be done in Aussie schools in this short article from The Conversation.
