Partaking in yoga from a young age dramatically improves the quality of children’s lives.
Yoga develops an incredible sense of calm and enduring stamina: physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. It insists upon self-inquiry and rewards the student with both confidence and humility. Yoga helps children develop their playground grit and become ambassadors to peace and creative enterprise. This practice embraces universal virtues of goodness and grace and teaches students to view adversity as stepping-stones instead of stumbling blocks.
Studies reflect some startling statistics; 30% of young people engage in risky behaviors that compromise their lives and their future. Four years ago researchers from Harvard University and Kripalu Institute teamed up to study students who took yoga two to three times per week. The findings published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics revealed that students who took yoga had fewer negative moods, less anxiety and performed significantly better in academics and athletic performance.
Yoga is truly a life long gift for a child. They become aware of and in tuned to the relationship of their body and of their emotions. By shifting the focus of negative societal trends, children of all ages are empowered and inspired to be healthy, happy and inquisitive individuals. The calming effect of yoga on the nervous system raises the level of energy, compassion and awareness. Yoga empowers young people to reach their creative potential and become responsible and attentive adults.

It is a great responsibility to help shape a child’s destiny and their view of the world. A teacher’s energy and spirit are paramount to a child’s learning experience. Yoga pedagogy involves the science of teaching teachers the beauty and the inherent gifts of yoga. While most passionate teachers are inspired by their students, we recognize that children require a tremendous amount of energy. By creating a reservoir of calmness and an ample supply of vitality, these seminars provide invaluable tools that assist teachers with their sacred charges. By building allegiance between health and education, we create the optimal opportunity and foundation for academic achievement.
