Why Yoga For Kids?

school3Current brain, academic and cardiovascular research provide scientific evidence that practices related specifically to yoga and breathing techniques offer:

  • 27% increase in GABA levels (calmness, anti-anxiety) which is critical as stressed brains literally do not function as well
  • Improved academic achievement through learning how to improve focus and handle stress
  • Increased academic interest as a result of providing integrated movement in traditionally sedentary, academic settings
  • Interactive experiences with team-building, cooperation and tolerance.

We teach kids how to read, add and subtract. Let’s teach them also how to self-regulate their emotions, along with physical and mental levels toward academic and social success.
