The Needs of Kids Yoga

Due to social and academic high expectations, busy parents, sports competitions, children nowadays live in a hurry-up world, and feel anxious and stressed.

  • In the US, 36% of the teenagers feel stressed and thus tired, said NBC news.

  • Elizabeth Green, an Australian pediatrician, who has seen 25,000 kids over the past 17 years, said we can see children as young as four or five with generalized anxiety disorders.

 

Yoga for kids can help students release some stress and feel more joy in their life.

As children learn how to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun, creative and non-competitive environment, they are also introduced to a healthier lifestyle.

 

It can also be an option for children who shy away from physical activity or group activities for fear of failure.
