Yoga in School can help improve children’s self esteem. To cope with the strains of technology in their every day life. It teaches them about balance. It allows them to have quiet time inside.
Yoga practise is renowned as a good way to relieve stress, anxiety and to improve mental health.
Elaine says ‘I have seen children first hand in my class change from being anxious (sore tummy with no pain) to bouncing happily out the door.’
Yoga is also great exercise for children. In today’s world where we have to make a concerted effort to make sure that they get at least 60 minutes of activity that is important.
