Yoga creates a space for coming back in contact with who you truly are; to relax, to invigorate and to enjoy.
It benefits mental health by reducing stress levels in the body through calming breath techniques, movement sequences and guided relaxations. It benefits the physical body by encouraging awareness of the body and its needs; be that strenghtening, mobilising or resting.
Children are natural yogis so exposure to yoga helps them to stay in touch with their natural state of harmony. This connection is maintained through yogas wonderful array of ways to self-sooth, relax and listen to the body.
For both boys and girls yoga is a great way to promote body-confidence, self-esteem and contentment. There's no winning or losing so everyone can feel they belong.
Through this playful mix of yoga, movement, games and visualisations children can learn social, emotional and personal skills that will benefit them for life.
