Helps To Manage Weight Children spend long hours in sitting poses and tend to consume a lot of junk food as well, both of which are a by-product of the modern lifestyle. Yoga helps to counterbalance this lifestyle. Through regular practice of asanas , children can manage a healthy weight. This helps to ease the problem of childhood obesity at a young age. Improves Flexibility and Posture Sitting down to study for long hours and too much screen time can lead to incorrect posture. This poor posture in childhood can develop into major anatomy complication in adult life. The practice of various asanas on a regular basis leads to correction of posture, enhances flexibility and improves their balances as it brings balance to the whole body.


Teaches Healthy Breathing Breathing is fundamental for life and how we breathe is directly related to our overall wellness. Good breathing affects our movement and our ability to cope with stress in a very positive way . Through pranayama, students can learn at a young age how to master the technique of breathing correctly and improve the quality of their life. Promotes Mindfulness Mindfulness is simply learning to be in the present. Focusing on your breath or directing your attention to the sounds you can perceive is mindfulness. Everyone can do this at any time of the day – even for a few seconds . Mindfulness enables people to become less anxious but more relaxed. Children can become more mindful using creative and entertaining visualisation techniques. Encourages Self-Love Yoga promotes healing from the inside rather than looking good on the outside and teaches people how to respect and love their own bodies. This is very important message for children who are constantly advertised with "idealistic" body images on social media . Self-love which comes with yoga promotes self-care and can teach these values at a very young age. The children learn to be comfortable in their own skin and nurture it well.


Helps To Bring Peace Of Mind The vastness of academic curriculum alone can baffle students and yet, they deal with many other extra-curricular activities and social life as well. By practising pranayama and mindfulness, students really learn how to handle the anxiety and manage the different aspects of life effectively. The peace of mind stimulates the release of good hormones that have a snowball effect and uplifts the mood of the child in general. Improves Self-Control Through controlled breathing and controlled movement, yoga teaches students self-control. As a result, they do not react impulsively or make hasty and wrong decisions even in an emotional state. With self-mastery, a person can keep his or her anger in control and make rational decisions when required. If a young yogi can learn self-control at a young age, indeed, no door can ever be closed for him or her.


Reduces Absences And Violence In School Because of good health and balanced temperament, children are less likely to remain absent from school or pick fights with each other about small issues. Instead, they tend to engage more positively in school and develop healthy relationships with their teachers and friends. Enhances Coping Skills As mentioned before , children are burdened with a lot of stress . Yoga teaches children how to correctly cope with the stress, manage it, and stay productive. This is because the children learn how to breathe deeply and be more mindful . Boosts Immunity And Improves Physical Appearance Alongside its other health benefits, yoga also boosts immunity and prevents attacks from different viruses and bacteria by increasing the levels of antibodies. Yoga promotes blood circulation which can work wonders for the skin, hair and nails. A healthy body feels and looks happy.


Improves The Quality Of Sleep Children should sleep for up to 7-8 hours each night. A good night’s sleep allows the body to be healthy, ready, and energetic for the next day . As yoga allows the body and the mind to relax, practitioners notice a better quality in their sleep. With better sleep, children can focus better in class, play more actively, and perform better at examinations. Increases Self-Confidence Yoga is an old art but is relevant in present times more than everything. When it comes to benefits of yoga , these are just the tips of the iceberg.
