Kids Yoga is a wonderful way to get your kids moving, using their imagination, and give them the tools to becoming aware.
A lot of schools are understanding the importance of yoga and the increased concentration amongst their students. Therefore, performing better on tests, etc.
In our kids classes, we start with an introduction to get the kids comfortable with the group and their teacher. We then work on breathing exercises to calm the kids. From there we begin the asana, poses, where they can use their imagination and create poses as well. We read a story and discuss things we should do and not do (Niyamas and Yamas from the 8 Limbs of Yoga). And then we use our imagination to go to a happy place where we can relax and be free!
But there are SO many more benefits than just concentration.
