Yoga is beneficial to kids in many ways. Because children encounter emotional, social, and physical challenges or conflicts, a yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioral guidelines, and physical postures can be incredibly valuable for them.Yoga is something children can practice anywhere and that the breathing, the concentration, the poses, and the way kids learn to act or react to situations, will lead to constant self-discovery and inquisitiveness.Here are just 5 of the many ways yoga can help children.
1-It Enhances Physical Flexibility -Yoga promotes physical strength because kids learn to use all of their muscles in new ways. Whether a pose is done standing, sitting, or lying down, each one can challenge various muscle groups while helping a child become aware of his/her body and how it efficiently functions.
2-It Refines Balance and Coordination- Balance is a key element of yoga. Balancing poses were created to promote mental and physical poise, as mental clarity and stability emerge from the effort of trying the poses. Even if a child has difficulty standing on one foot, she learns mental and physical balance if she can stay calm when she falls and when she gets up to try again. As children learn to improve their physical balance, they will be filled with a sense of accomplishment.
3-It Develops Focus and Concentration-The act of practicing poses encourages children to clear their mind and focus on the effort.
4-It Boosts Self-Esteem and Confidence- Yoga helps to instill confidence and to bring learning to children on an experiential level. Yoga teaches them to persevere, be patient, and work toward their goals.
5-It Strengthens the Mind-Body Connection- Yoga helps kids achieve a sound mind in a sound body by exercising the physical body and calming the mental spirit.
