One of the many benefits of kid's yoga include enhancing concentration; your child learns how to sit still in one place and focus; this helps boost their attention span which can help improve grades.

Just For Kids Yoga

Yoga allows a child to just be a child while getting back to basics of taking time to pause and connect with the breath.  Yoga also serves to stimulate the body and mind while engaging in fun yoga a posture…Who doesn’t like barking like a dog in Downward Dog pose??!!

A few of the many benefits of yoga include enhancing concentration; your child learns how to sit still in one place and focus; this helps boost their attention span which can help improve grades.  Yoga also increases flexibility, balance and tones muscles. This will lead to greater strength. Once your child is able to display greater flexibility and better performance in school it will boost their confidence and create a wonderful sense of self.

Children are surrounded by so much outward stimulation at a very young age, but yoga is a great tool which allows the child to just be, visualize a day in the park, breathing, balancing, connecting with nature and just having fun.
