Yoga for children is any form of yoga adapted or designed specifically for youth of all ages. It takes into consideration the peculiarities of every age and adapts the traditional yoga postures and routines so that kids can do them safely. Yoga can be done by children of any age, the only limitations and restrictions are caused by the children’s inability to be attentive for a long time.
Typically yoga classes designed for children incorporate interactive poses and games intended to hold the children’s attention. Such practices as meditation are mostly suitable for adolescents 12 years of age or older. The main goal of yoga for kids is stimulation of the physical, mental and emotional abilities of a child. Yoga is also successfully used as a form of therapy for kids with different physical and mental ailments.
I’m an inclusive, not scary, totally normal yet heavily qualified yoga instructor and founder of YogaBellies® and the Birth ROCKS Method. I’m trained in self hypnosis and meditation and what I love is helping women (ALL women) enjoy yoga without having to whisper all the time and wear fancy activewear that cost a month’s rent.
I believe Yoga is for everyone.
