It all started when…
In a world where parents and children are so busy, family yoga provides a wonderful place to spend healthy and happy, quality time together.
No mobile phones, no iPads or TV, no other duties…it’s just you and your children.
Family is so important, and time and care are needed to nurture it and make it work; yoga is perfect for this! Children, parents, and even grandparents get to enjoy practicing yoga together and strengthen their bonds while they support each other and have fun.
This is relaxed and fun as well as building strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance of body and mind. Busy parents have the opportunity to relax some of their responsibilities and have fun with their children.
Being Present with Each Other
If the purpose of yoga is to become awake in the present moment, then children are inherently yogis in training. With the correct encouragement and focus they are easily fully engaged, no matter their age. We can harness their intrinsic desire to move and curious imaginations to use yoga postures as an opportunity for a fun game of “make believe,” and also to move in ways that are beneficial for the body and mind. Yoga can help alleviate growing pains, build self-trust, self-awareness, ability to focus, balancing skills, confidence, and release anxiety, so that we can support the next generation to be holistically balanced adults.
Yoga is about moving the body, but it is just as much about positive, compassionate thinking. This is the perfect time to share loving thoughts about each other.
Join together with your family to enjoy the benefits of yoga.
