How Yoga Can Help Children Achieve Mindfulness
“Yoga and Mindfulness” is sweeping across the Western world at mock speed. It is one of the fastest growing practices being taught in yoga studios, the workplace, hospitals, and more recently, schools. It’s not just adults that can stand to benefit from cultivating a focused awareness on the present moment. Mindfulness practices could be beneficial for children for the same reasons it helps adults, contributing to reduced stress, improved sleep quality, and heightened focus. Today, children live in a hurry-up world with school pressures, lessons, video games, and competitive sports. This can contribute to anxiety, tension headaches, and nervous stomachaches. We usually don’t think of these influences as stressful for our kids, but often they are. The bustling pace of our children’s lives can have a profound effect on their innate joy. The use of meditation may optimize the health, well-being, and happiness of children. Sign up at the rec or online today!
