Why Children and Teenagers should have Yoga in Their LIFE

February 3, 2019

 

 

 

Why Teach Yoga to Teenagers?

 

Well for a start Growing up is never easy and although we have all done it, having the right tools such as your very own yoga class where every single student is treated equally and there is no grading so no pressure to perform can be just what your child needs to build their confidence and take some time out just to be themselves.

The pressure of studies, body awareness, Bullying, Anxiety, Depression, Social media are all very much a part life and just having a place to come and learn breathing, Postures, relaxation without any judgement on whether you can touch your toes or not can be very fulfilling.

 

Yoga helps children see the beauty and light within themselves, thereby boosting their self-confidence, allowing them to feel more comfortable with their bodies, and helping them get in touch with who they are inside. A child who learns yoga, mindfulness and relaxation will be developing essential skills for a lifetime of health and wellness in mind, body and spirit.
