At Pinnacle we encourage children ‘Get up and Grow’. Part of our Munch and Move program we incorporate yoga into our curriculum.
Yoga has amazing effects on people, especially children. It teaches children to be calm while gaining awareness of the bodies, self-control and discipline.
Here are just a few benefits on yoga for children.
- Grows Confidence
- Promotes a Healthy Body
- Improves Concentration
- Manages stress through Breathing exercises
- Promotes Inclusivity
- Introduces Kids to Mindfulness
- Teaches through Stories and Song
- Improves Coordination and Balance
Children’s yoga can enhance your child’s strength, coordination and flexibility, while encouraging body awareness, posture and self-esteem. It can reduce your child’s anxiety and stress and promote a sense of calmness.
As children learn how to guide themselves in and out of yoga poses, they are taught self-awareness and how to control their bodies by focusing on individual movements.
