Benefits of Childrens Yoga

Teachers today are finding that children are struggling with the standard school routine as they are unable to sit for the period of time required in a school day. Evidence suggests that this is largely due to the increase of time they spend in car seat and prams as small babies.

Lullaby Lucy Childrens Yoga uses stories and adventures to guide the children through the exercises. This can help to correct posture and encourage physical strength because children learn to use all of their muscles in new ways. Whether a pose is done standing, sitting, or lying down, each one can challenge various muscle groups while helping a child become aware of their body and how it efficiently functions.

Lullaby Lucy Childrens Yoga develops focus and concentration, practising poses encourages children to clear their mind and focus on the effort. As a result of this single focus to achieve a particular pose or stay balanced, Lullaby Lucy Children yoga encourages children to feel a great sense of achievement.
