The Benefits of Yoga for Kids

There are many benefits to practicing yoga at a young age, and kids love it! 

Here are some of the benefits of this practice for the little ones!

1. Reduces anxiety

2. Improved concentration 

3. Teaches them to react to situations differently 

4. A form of exercise for those that shy away from other activities

5. Improves flexibility

6. Helps kids recover from other activities like soccer and basketball 

7. Enhances self esteem and confidence by teaching kids to be patient and persevere 

Shana Meyerson, the founder of mini yogis (miniyogis.com), a yoga studio Southern California that offers classes for kids, believes that yoga builds self-esteem and self-respect. "A child's yoga practice is a rare opportunity to experience play and focus without worrying about being wrong," she says. 

It's a great way to get kids out of their heads and into being present and noticing how their bodies feel.
