Susan Verde, the Author of the book “I am yoga” said: “Through simple ideas, movements and an awareness about yourself you can open yourself up and be anything.” I teach my kids yoga classes with this thought in the back of our mind challenging them to join me in imagining to fly like an airplane and to be strong and steady like a tree or a mountain. Together we will travel to the desert as a camel and navigate in a boat though rivers full of crocodile, fish, frogs around us. Together we can do anything!
Yoga helps kids to develop more body awareness and learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way. It has proven to build concentration and increase kids confidence and positive self-image being part of a healthy, non-competitive group.
