Your little boy plays three recreational sports and your little girl takes dance class and as well as being on her way to becoming a tennis champion. But have you ever thought about enrolling them in a yoga class? If not, it's worth looking into. Yoga can be very beneficial for little ones.
Your kiddies won't be little for long. They are well on their way towards adolescence, where they'll encounter the stress of puberty, from the classroom to the practice field. Yoga is a gentle, whole-body exercise that creates feelings of calm and well-being during and after practicing. If yoga works for adults, it can also work for children.
Through yoga, kids learn how to take flexibility and turn it into body awareness. They also learn coordination through carefully concentrated yoga poses and movements. Remember how your son can't seem to concentrate on more than one thing for five minutes? Yoga can improve his concentration and focus, while allowing him to hang upside-down and have fun.
Maybe your little girl sometimes has temper tantrums when she doesn't get her own way. Through deep breaths and meditation techniques learned in yoga, she can learn to channel her anger into something more positive, and become a calmer, more responsive child.
