Yoga For Children

Yoga for children can include asanas—physical postures, pranayama—breathing practices, kriyas—cleansing techniques, dhyana meditation techniques and yoga nidra —relaxation training and yields a positive effect in the management of stress.

Yoga practice benefited children by improving hand-eye coordination, attention span, levels of concentration, competitive performance and relaxation. Today’s lifestyle is fast-paced, stressful and breads anxiety. Finding tools to help our children to cope and thrive in this environment is an essential concern for conscious parents and caregivers. The use of yoga for children has diverse applications in maintaining and developing physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual health.

It is our intention to bring useful resources related to yoga and children to serve parents, caregivers, teachers, medical professionals, counsellors and academics.
