Can Children Do Yoga?

Posted on: February 6, 2010


Well as you can see, Yes children can do yoga!

It is actually pretty healthy and has lots of benefits, I posted last month about my morning exercise with my students, it is not yoga but it’s very similar.

There isn’t alot of space in class so we can stretch fully, teachers can do it on a lower scale. However, it would be a great thing for you as a parent to do some yoga exercises with your child. Why?

 

  • It helps children to relax, concentrate and focus.
  • It builds stamina, stability and balance.
  • It helps improve digestion, elimination of toxins and circulation.
  • It strengthens the musculature of the body, elongates the spine and promotes good posture.
  • Children who practice yoga have a good posture.
  • Specific postures help relieve gas and constipation.
  • It improves breathing habits through pranayam.
  • It develops speech skills through the use of singing and chanting.
  • It improves sleeping patterns.
  • It improves memory and develops effective concentration skills.
  • Yoga means connecting to God. A child’s mind is pure and body flexible. They’ll absorb everything that is given to them. The earlier your child begins the better he will feel. Let yoga be his guide into the world of good and harmonious living. Give him this gift to keep him healthy and happy – more positive, self confident and emotionally independent. But make sure you look out for a qualified teacher first. A teacher who has the ability to teach the children according to their attention span and abilities and who can teach in a creative, playful manner to help them develop all their potentialities.
