Mini Yoga Club is a complimentary weekly program designed for children aged 2-5 years. We believe all children have the right to experience the positive benefits of yoga, so we’ve incorporated it into our learning program at each centre at no additional charge. Here are some of the key benefits of yoga for children.
Learning & Development
The mindful practice of yoga is associated with learning, memory and regulating emotions. It helps children process what they are learning and aids their perspective. Yoga for young children uses relaxation based on experience, breathing and imagination that helps children cope in their educational environment and daily life.
Enhancing Physical Flexibility
Learning and development have never been so much fun as children learn to use their muscles in creative yoga poses. Yoga promotes a child’s physical strength as they become aware of their body and how it functions.
Balance & Coordination
Yoga teaches mental and physical balance. Children will be filled with a sense of accomplishment once they achieve balance through practice, failure and success. Yoga also helps children with the development of their gross and fine motor coordination.
Focus & Concentration
The act of practising poses encourages children to clear their minds and focus on the effort. As a result, yoga helps children build techniques to help them concentrate in school and everyday life.
Self-Esteem & Confidence
Yoga supports character development and emotional intelligence as well as enhancing team skills and social interaction. It promotes self-control of the whole body while supporting individuality and self-expression. Most of all, it inspires respect for others and self. Yoga has enormous benefits for a child’s self-esteem.
Health & Well-Being
Yoga strengthens the mind-body connection by exercising the physical body and calming the mental spirit. It improves children’s ability to reduce their stress and contribute to a highly favourable balance in life.
