Yoga For Children

Updated: Feb 18

Yoga means union of mind (emotions/thoughts) and physical body creating inner harmony and balance. Yoga has been around for many centuries and is becoming quickly popular in the western culture for its wonderful benefits.

Many adults attend yoga for many different reasons, but as a parent, you may have concerns that there is a religious aspect to the practice. It can be suggested that yoga is part of Hinduism and different aspects like prayer and ‘om’ chanting along with meditation will be part of the children’s yoga classes. To clear up this impression in all the children’s sessions taking place at Lotus Flower Yoga we avoid all religious and cultural message.

The yoga sessions for children are taught with parents concerns in mind. Classes focus on the benefits of yoga for the physical and mental benefits. We do not use any Sanskrit words for the postures, names used to perform the poses are educational instead. We have names such as Cat, Bridge, lizard, tree and much more to capture your little one's attention.

The postures that are performed have a substantial positive effect on children with much research now being/been taken.

"Yoga has more to offer than your typical fun activity for little ones. There are studies connecting it to improvements in asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, ADHD, and autism. "Mind-body practices can be beneficial for a variety of conditions worsened by stress and anxiety, as well as stress or anxiety itself," says Gurjeet Birdee, M.D., a paediatrician and assistant professor in internal medicine and paediatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, in Nashville.”

Here are six benefits of Yoga for children attending yoga

  • Helps with concentration and focus

  • Refines balance and coordination

  • Enhances Flexibility

  • Boosts self-esteem and confidence

  • Strengthens the mind-body connection

  • Helps increase imagination

Yoga helps with the development of your growing child in more than one way.
