Other benefits:

Stress

Yoga may be able to help children reduce stress and deal more effectively with stressful situations.

Anger Management

  • Yoga helps calm the mind and bring peace even into situations that would normally provoke anger. In theory, children who learn these skills early will be less prone toward anger as adults.

  • Body Awareness

  • Yoga helps to develop body awareness, which can increase self esteem in children as their bodies change and grow. Yoga can also help children maintain flexibility as they grow.

ADHD

  • According to research conducted at the University of Heidelberg, yoga for children can be effectively used in conjunction with medication to treat children with ADHD.
