What are the key benefits of children's yoga?

Yoga and mindfulness can promote the following:

Yes, absolutely. Practicing yoga can improve concentration and behaviour and also:

· can help children with ADHD

· teaches self regulation 

· promotes inner calm

· mind-body connection

· can decrease aggressive behaviour and hyperactivity

· can also help reduce stress and anxiety using mindfulness, breathing and grounding techniques

Will my child need any special equipment, clothes etc?

What can children gain from practicing yoga?

My aim is to provide children with a space to sit, recognise and understand the emotions they are feeling.

Breathing techniques will be used to promote the parasympathetic nervous system, teaching that they have the ability within themselves to become calm.

Yoga poses will build strength and flexibility.  It is non-competitive and teaches children the process of learning, by showing that there are many ways to achieve a pose and that we are all different.

It is a privilege to see the transformative effect of yoga on young people.
