Yoga For Kids


Growing up can be very challenging. Children these days harbour a whole host of feelings and emotions; they are faced with daily distractions, temptations and peer pressures and are sometimes unsure of how to channel this.

I wanted to train to teach yoga to kids because I wish I had been introduced to yoga at a much earlier stage in my life. I would have been ecstatic at the option of a lunch-time or after-school getaway in a peaceful setting where I felt safe and calm; an escape from the social anxiety of the playground.

Yoga is a low-cost effective tool that can have a very positive impact on everyone, both children and adults, and is a wonderful addition to the school spec to aid children as they evolve through life.

Yoga can help kids:

  • Increase their confidence and positive self-image – by developing good body awareness you are helping the child develop a sense of confidence. Yoga incorporates a lot of mindful teachings with regards to acceptance of both the self and of others.

  • Assists neuromuscular-development - the nerves that control your voluntary muscles

  • Promotes development of the vestibular system – coordinating movement with balance

  • Improves digestion, circulation and elimination.

  • Strengthen the immune system – stress weakens your immune system. Yoga assists lymphatic circulation. The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection by draining toxins, bacteria etc from your body.

  • Build strength and avoid injuries – not only strong, but flexible! 

  • Encourages better sleep – exercise, breath work and relaxation techniques can also lead to better sleep by helping to reduce stress, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed etc.

  • Build concentration – Focusing on the breath, as well as things such as balance through the practice, can aid concentration and lung capacity. Healthy hormones are released and stress is therefore naturally reduced.

  • Feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group – creating a sense of integration and belonging, without the stress and anxiety of unnecessary competition.

  • Improve capability to be less reactive; more mindful of thoughts, words and actions

  • Develop discipline, self-control, individuality and self-expression.
