Yoga For Schools

“Catch Them Young”!!

-Dr. H. R Nagendra

Kids in Modern World

There are not many programs around which are non –competitive….

Yoga in schools is a creative fun filled approach to yoga that is very helpful for children whose bodies are still developing. The use of animated poses and basic stretching exercises promote strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness. Breathing and visualization techniques teach kids how to focus, relax and develop self-control.

Kids improve concentration and focus, stimulate their imagination and help to release energy in a fun, safe environment. 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.
