Yoga is a life-time journey and the skills developed not only help young ones in their daily routine and school-work, yoga provides learning, understanding and skills that will and can be used throughout all the stages in life.
The whole point of yoga is to help a person, no matter what their age be successful working with their strengths and to build confidence and self-esteem.
YOGA IS ABOUT SKILLS FOR LIFE.
Yoga means ‘union’. Union of the body and mind through posture. Through creating body awareness that includes balance, co-ordination, flexibility strength and conscious breathing, not only does yoga have a positive impact physically, it also works on the mind and the emotions.
The more obvious physical benefits are often what attracts followers that initially do not have awareness of the other benefits.
Yoga enhances physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health enabling building of ‘inner resources and strengths’ that we need throughout our lives and the situations life presents for us all.
Yoga for Kids helps to embed practices from a very early age and integrates positive behaviours and choices over how we learn, grow, develop and respond to situations throughout our lives.
