About this Course
- Yoga teaches Confidence.
Acknowledging the individuality in each body, they learn that these differences are okay. No one is better or worse at yoga; we are all exploring our bodies and learning from them in our own way. Yoga is truly for everybody.
- Yoga teaches Self-acceptance.
In the same way that it provides an opportunity to learn something non-competitive, it also teaches children to accept and cherish themselves as they are. Learned young, this incredibly valuable lesson arms children with the right tools to fight off the increasing feelings of self-doubt that come during adolescence and beyond.
- Namaste: The light in me sees the light in you.
Yoga teaches acceptance and tolerance of others. In practicing yoga, children learn early in life that all living beings are to be cherished and respected as they are, thus helping to create more peaceful local communities and a more peaceful world.
- Focus, Focus, Focus
We live in a world of distractions. These days, children seem increasingly hesitant to focus on anything for decent lengths of time. Yoga can help with that. It teaches children to be present, and to concentrate and focus on their breathing.
- Yoga teaches Calming Techniques
Young children generally deal with frustration by crying and throwing tantrums. When they learn proper, healthy breathing techniques and tools to focus the mind, they begin to learn how to cope with stress and other emotions.
- Self-Awareness through Yoga
They learn more about their minds, and how they can affect not only their own attitudes and approaches to life, but also the attitudes of others.
