The yoga practice is also recommended for kids who want to be healthy and have great posture. Yoga positions are natural for kids at all ages.
As I pointed out at the beginning, it is extremely important that every kid does the exercise carefully and thoughtfully. I highly recommend exercises under the supervision of trained and licensed instructors of yoga keeping an eye on a kid and on a kids’s medical condition. Before taking exercises you have to check your kidˈs condition with your paediatrician.
Comfort and well-being is the main at welfare of the yoga practice of the child.

Yoga for children is a unique concept developed by different knowledges and it is a mixture of child’s development, movement techniques and yoga asanas – yoga postures. In the workshops of Yoga 4 Kids, kids get in touch with different asanas, massage techniques and also with correct and safety movement techniques for good posture.
Benefits of yoga for children: an improved digestion, a better immune system, a better and deeper sleep and a more positive view of life.

If possible, it is recommended to practice yoga every day before kindergarten or school. Otherwise, the optimum is at least twice to three times a week for the body to be cleaned, exercised and relaxed.
Which Group of Children is Yoga Suitable for?
Yoga is an exercise recommended for kids at all ages. Exercises are adapted to the child’s health status and needs. Then it is necessary that a child with different health problems carries out exercises more carefully and avoids excessive exertion.
Practising yoga is usually done in order, i.e. starting with chanting respectively or singing mantras. After that it is time for massage. Then a set of asanas working best for your child is chosen. After performing asanas, relaxation is needed for the child.
Asanas should be regularly performed. The health of child’s condition should be watched out. Consistency and adherence should be required.
During exercise prana stimulates, i.e. the life energy circulates throughout the body and makes the body relaxed in Savasana or, in this case, a child falls into a comfortable sleeping position.
