Why Kids Yoga

We live in an ever-changing world where everyone experiences varying degrees of stress and our children are no different.

Our children live in a society that is constantly on the move – the morning rush to get to school, the pressure to get good grades, music lessons, sports trainings, attention from friends, the need to ‘fit in’ and self-esteem issues are just a few things that our children endure in their lives.

As we know as adults, we all cope with the stresses of life in a range of ways and although the stresses influencing our children’s lives don’t seem that serious to us, they can have a profound effect on how a child can focus and feel, which left uncontrolled will eventually have an impact on their self-esteem and overall happiness in life.
