YOGA FOR CHILDREN IN SCHOOL

Science has shown and educators have experienced first-hand, that when children are anxious, frustrated or stressed, it is nearly impossible for them to learn.  It is only from a relaxed, calm and present state of mind and body that our children can be psychologically and physiologically learning-ready.

Yoga helps children see the beauty and light within themselves, thereby boosting their self-confidence, allowing them to feel more comfortable with their bodies, and helping them get in touch with who they are inside. A child who learns yoga, mindfulness and relaxation will be developing essential skills for a lifetime of health and wellness in mind, body and spirit.
