Yoga & Meditation

Yoga & meditation

We live in a busy world, so it is important to take time during the day to slow down, practice basic stretches and promote exercises that have enormous benefits. Doing yoga allows children to connect deeply with their inner self, and develop a relationship with the natural world that surrounds them.

To facilitate this simply set up a yoga mat or a towel on a flat surface. There are many different stretches you can practice. Entice your child by inviting them to stretch like a dog on all fours, balance like a flamingo on one leg, breathe in nice and deep like a bunny or stand strong with your arms stretched out like a tree. Let them make a connection between the environment and their bodies.
