Hey parents, let us talk about some benefits yoga brings to your kid. As lives are getting faster and more technology oriented, it affects our kids too. Outside games are less while they are more attracted towards video games and online games and to social medias. When our lifestyle changes, it affects our kids too. Many kids are getting hyperactive and more congenital deformities and neurological disorders are reporting now like autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc.
Juvenile diabetes, obesity, early puberty are also running high in our population. Let us see how yoga can bring a change in such a scenario.
Yoga helps the kids feel calm and peaceful. Since Yoga is a “mind body” exercise method, it has proven to benefit kids with better concentration, improved mental clarity, physical strength and flexibility and better coordination. It helps in brain development and thus is a powerful tool for learning. While we teach children yoga, we can make it enjoyable with games. These games encourage teamwork and social interaction among them. They will learn positive attitude
Yoga assists in neuromuscular-development and motor development on both sides of the body. It improves posture and alignment and helps in developing core strength and correct physical alignment. Yoga reduces injuries and improves performance, improves digestion, and circulation. Since kids are more attracted towards high-calorie bakery foods which are made of white flour, meat, and high in salt, sugar, and fat, while very low in fiber, many are facing constipation. Since yoga increases the metabolism and improves digestion, it eliminates constipation. It also strengthens their immune system, relaxes the
body, and promotes better sleep. For hyperactive children, yoga helps to improves their ability to be less reactive, makes them more mindful of thoughts, words, and actions.
Yoga helps to build confidence and self-esteem. It supports character development and emotional intelligence. It helps to develop discipline and self-control in kids. Yoga gives the kids confidence to express themselves well. It develops social and environmental awareness and responsibility among kids and they will have a sense of universal connectedness. It helps them to respect themselves and others. Mindfulness and simple meditations in yoga helps the children
to see the beauty and light within themselves, thereby it boosts their self-confidence and allows them to feel more comfortable with their bodies. It helps them get in touch with who they are inside. When a child learns yoga from earlier childhood, they develop mindfulness and relaxation for a lifetime and it brings them health and wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
Then, why you wait, let us join together and have a wonderful yoga session. May our children be happy, healthy and peaceful always.
