Yoga for kids can be an end-all fitness experience for them or be used as a vehicle to help them improve in their school work, sport of choice or improve their overall health. Regardless of the end goal, kids yoga is a fun experience that can help both the body and mind.
Not all kids are athletic in the traditional sense, but they still need physical activity and a group-style interest. Kids yoga provides the fitness activity to promote a healthy body in a fun atmosphere with their peers.
Yoga helps develop the ability to focus and that can translate into better grades. The increased focus on what is being said or read in the classroom will result in better grades on the report card.
Kids yoga will help increase flexibility, endurance and muscle recovery so the child’s sports performance will improve. Whether running, jumping, kicking, swinging a bat, bouncing a ball or swimming, regular yoga sessions will improve kids sports performance.
Kids are exposed to a wide variety of illness-causing germs during their school days and after-school activities. Yoga strengthens the immune system and enables children to ward off many of those germs that would otherwise invade their bodies and make them sick.
