About yoga

This helps us to be able to see stressful situations from a new perspective and not perceive them as such. Etymology comes from Sanskrit and means “union, union”, or unite the mind, body and spirit. Yoga combines breathing practices, physical postures and relaxation methods that contribute to the development of a healthy and balanced life, promoting physical, intellectual and spiritual development in children.

As with swimming and climbing, yoga moves and uses the whole body and thus helps the overall motor development of the little ones, helping to develop their flexibility and plasticity and takes care of their good tone. As we already know, children learn most easily through games and repetition of sounds and movements, and at the same time they are imperceptibly helped to feel the energy embedded in the various poses, as well as to see the philosophy of practice.

Yoga helps children balance their emotional balance by teaching them to be present in the present here and now, teaching them to be disciplined and able to concentrate easily while relaxing and gaining a calm state of mind, which ultimately improves their emotional regulation.

An additional plus is the fact that practicing different yoga poses helps children get to know their bodies and the movements they are able to do. From the brain point of view, yoga improves children’s concentration and memory, requiring them to focus and memorize different types of moves, as a result of which they gradually learn and begin to reproduce them on their own.
