What is Yoga for Children?

Natural energy and creativity are at exceptionally high levels during childhood. It is an ideal time for children to learn more about the dynamics of their bodies as they gain insight into how their minds’ work.
Through the practice of yoga, children enhance their strength, flexibility, coordination and gain a heightened sense of awareness of their bodies. They are able to achieve a feeling of calm and improve their concentration and relaxation skills. The benefits of yoga for children are many, but the principal focus is to nurture a strong, healthy body, a contented mind and, with commitment, a sense of inner peace.
