What benefits does yoga provide children?
By incorporating yoga into early years classrooms teachers help to cultivate an environment where children can feel happier, calmer and more cooperative. Through the practice of yoga children will learn skills to help support self-regulation, body awareness and relaxation. Learning yoga helps to increase focus and concentration as well as encourage and support self-confidence and self-control.
