Here are some reasons why yoga and toddlers totally go together, and these might just help you understand why so many parents think it’s awesome for their kids.
HELPS BODIES STAY FLEXIBLE AND GROW STRONG
Young bodies are naturally flexible and yoga helps them to maintain this flexibility, whilestrengthening their growing muscles. Strength and flexibility allow for fewer and less-severe injuries, especially when these little tikes are running and bouncing around all the time.
TEACHES FOCUS AND ATTENTIVENESS
The different poses and pacing allows children to learn self-control, teachingthem focus and awareness from a young age - a skill that is essential in learning and all of life.
Yoga poses yield poise and power, and help children learn persistence as well as control of their own bodies. This does wonders for a child’s confidence.
HELPS QUIET THE MIND
Yoga teaches us to be still (and we all know how rare this is to achieve in little kids)! Even if it is just for a few minutes,children learn the importance and peacefulness of being quiet and focused, and learning this mental posture is a tool that will benefit them throughout their lives.
GIVES US TOOLS TO MANAGE STRESS
Practicing yoga provides powerful relaxation techniques for calming the mind and the body. The carefree little ones may not need these techniques right now (and we do hope it remains this way for a long while!), but these are all tools that a child can carry into future life situations.
Yoga encourages self-expression and freedom through the various postures and poses. Not only is it fun, but it invites kids to start being bold and creative in exploring the ways they can move their bodies to express themselves.
TEACHES DISCIPLINE AND RESPONSIBILITY
Yoga is a journey which takes discipline, practice, patience and perseverance. These are traits that are important to instill in children from the beginning, which they can carry along with them for the rest of their lives.
