What are the benefits?
Namaste: The light in me sees the light in you
Yoga teaches acceptance and tolerance of others. In practicing yoga, kids learn early in life that all living beings are to be cherished and respected as they are, thus helping to create more peaceful local communities and a more peaceful world in our future.
Some kids have difficulty with focusing on anything for long, and yoga can help with that. It teaches kids to be present, and to concentrate and focus on their breathing. Kids learn how the breath can help them throughout the day, in any situation. They learn to focus on the pose by learning correct body alignment, and in so doing, learn to focus on their bodies and how they function—guiding each limb or part of the body through the nuances of the pose.
Through yoga kids are guiding their bodies through poses and learning more about their bodies and what they are capable of doing. They learn more about their minds, and how they can affect not only their own attitudes and approaches to life, but also the attitudes of others. This awareness of the body, mind and spirit, brings awareness to what can be achieved when all three work together.
