As a children’s yoga teacher you will definitely grow as an individual, but the upliftment that you get from helping a child to grow is beyond words.
Key benefits of yoga for young primary school students
- Mental and physical refreshment: This 5–8 age group starts to spend more time sitting and using electronic devices, so yoga can provide much needed mental and physical breaks.
- Body awareness: This is often the age where bad posture habits set in, so yoga helps to develop more body awareness, and kids learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way.
- Stress management: Yoga gives powerful ways to manage stress for young children through play, breathing, relaxation and light meditation practices.
- Concentration and focus: Kids can develop much greater focus through listening and following instructions during yoga – and this also helps them with their schoolwork.
