Kids need an average of an hour of exercise a day. Some of the benefits of daily exercise for kids include: helps them maintain a healthy weight, strengthens their muscles and bones, improves concentration at school and increases their health and well-being. One of our favorite ways to get our daily exercise is with YOGA. I started doing yoga with my son when he was born, and then it became a regular part of our daily routine as he got older.
Kids yoga is playful and full of imagination and adventure. It’s about letting kids be creative and seeing what type of poses they are drawn too. My son always loved the eagle pose and other fun postures to test his balance. We have a few favorite yoga CD’s that we would play and dance along to, such as Feeling Good Today by Snatam Kaur, Happy by Shakta Kaur Khalsa. We also loved the DVD, Shanti the Yogi and the book Fly Like a Butterfly, by Shakta Kaur Khalsa, where yoga is done through story-telling and acting out the story using yoga poses. With yoga, kids will be quieting their mind, meditating, breathing, all while doing fun exercises.
Why should kids do yoga? Here are 7 reasons:
Kids will love this playful and creative way to exercise. Yoga is a healthy tool for their body, mind and spirit! Namaste!
