•Yoga builds self-esteem and self-respect. A child’s yoga practice is a rare opportunity to do something without ever having to worry about being wrong.
• Yoga promotes physical strength, encouraging children to use all of their muscles in new ways. This is great for non-athletic children who typically shy away from physical activity in fear of failure or being picked last. It also helps athletic children to excel in other physical activities and sports.
Fun is an element in adults lives, and even in kids lives, that is often neglected and dismissed as unimportant. But fun has lots of benefits:
◦It makes you happy! …and therefore healthy! Woo-Hoo! Endorphins!
◦It’s a much safer environment to learn in, as opposed to fear
◦It helps to release tension
◦It creates space to explore and release unprocessed emotions
◦It’s a place where we learn to interact and communicate with others
◦While having fun, because fun always involves interaction with other people, we learn to play and live under certain basic rules of mutual respect… which is the only way to keep the fun going!
“Play is the highest form of research.”
― Albert Einstein
