Children today are under a lot of stress. Homework, pressure to compete with other children, endless after-school activities, all add up. Parents, today, are realising the importance of yoga for their kids just as for themselves.
Yoga helps children develop better body awareness, self-control, flexibility and coordination. Yoga has also been shown to help the hyperactive and attention-deficit child. It helps instill calm, confidence and balance. Physically, yoga offers the benefits of increasing flexibility, strength, and coordination. There is a risk of overstretching with yoga, especially for children, but no more so than with gymnastics, dance or stretching when warming up. Mentally, yoga is reputed to increase concentration as well as calmness. Other internal benefits include being introduced to and practicing the art of stillness, focus, self-acceptance, peace, and grace. The non-competitive nature of yoga (against others or self) makes it a safe practice, welcoming to all children. A yoga practice can provide new tools for kids when it comes to handling stress.
Yoga should not be introduced to children before the age of seven.
