International Yoga Day: 4 Proven Benefits of Yoga for Kids
Who Says Yoga Is Only for Adults?
The origins of yoga can be traced to northern India way back in 2700 B.C. Ancient folks would practice it to train their minds and bodies to self-observe and get in touch with their inner self.
Today, yoga has evolved. People are doing it not just to meditate but also to improve their postures, strengthen their muscles, and relieve stress.
With the numerous benefits yoga brings, it’s no wonder some parents are now getting their kids into the practice. It’s estimated that 1.7 million children in the United States are currently practicing yoga. Indeed, yoga has been helping improve the well-being of young people in so many ways.
In observance of International Yoga Day on June 21st, Kids Car Donations encourages moms and dads to introduce yoga to their little ones. Here are four reasons why:
- Yoga improves kids’ concentration and memory.
Practicing different poses requires kids to clear their minds and focus on their efforts to maintain balance or achieve a certain pose. This enhances their concentration and memorization skills. In turn, this acquired ability helps them perform well academically, enabling them to get better grades.
- Yoga helps them manage anxiety.
It’s well known that yoga is one of the best ways to fight off stress. The relaxation and breathing exercises can help adults and kids alike handle the everyday stresses of life. That’s because most of these techniques teach a vital coping mechanism for stressful situations: mindfulness.
- Yoga helps develop their flexibility and strength.
There are yoga poses for sitting, standing, and lying down. Each of them targets different muscle groups, allowing kids to strengthen their muscles. This improves their flexibility and lowers their risk of injury.
- Yoga boosts self-esteem.
Yoga can also do wonders for a child’s self-esteem. Mastering a pose or improving their flexibility gives them a sense of personal fulfillment.
