When you teach yoga to children, you awaken their innate intelligence – as well as your own.
Key benefits of yoga for primary school students
- Resilience and confidence: Preparation for high school and adolescence is an important time to teach children yoga skills that will increase their resilience and confidence.
- Self-esteem and positive self-image: Negative self-image can develop early in life. Yoga helps to build self-esteem and self-acceptance through a variety of postures and techniques.
- Emotional health: Yoga helps kids manage their own emotional ups and downs through simple breathing, movement and relaxation techniques.
- Physical coordination: Yoga teaches body awareness through postures and helps children to build strength and confidence.
“These kids yoga teaching courses are professional, well organised and very practical. I came away with a varied toolkit that allows me to confidently embed yoga in my classroom. Whether it’s a 1-minute calming or energising exercise, or a full yoga class, I now have the background knowledge, skills and practice to successfully to do this.” – Amanda Kenny, Teacher
