#5 - Encourages Cooperation: Children practicing yoga get to help each other with poses and positively interact with different age groups.
#4 - Helps Maintain the Peace: Little bodies sometimes get out of control and frustration levels reach a capacity where hitting and temper tantrums come naturally. Yoga is a healthy physical activity that engages them fully.
#3 - Increases Gross Motor Skills - Children learning poses and routines become more aware of their body and gain control over their movements.
#2 - Keeps Growing Bodies Flexible - Stretching is a minimal part of a child's regular daily life....unless they participate in yoga or some other specific stretching program. Having flexibility comes from keeping flexible.
#1 - It's Fun! - KIDS LOVE YOGA! They think it's hilarious to see an adult with their head on the ground and feet in the air. They love to imitate and what's better than playing with the whole body?
