Mommy’s note:

Maybe I should give this a try with my girls. Bonding time with them.The issue is finding the time to do it together.

Via Preschool Inspiration: The Best Kids Yoga Videos

Kid Yoga videos are giving teachers and parents an incredible tool to help children learn to:

  • manage stress
  • build their concentration
  • increase their confidence
  • and even work on gross motor skills.

I must admit I was a bit skeptical to jump on the kid yoga bandwagon. Did it really work? We started doing family yoga, and my kids loved it. During turtle on the rock, I would crouch over, and my daughter would lie on her back, balancing on me. Soon, we started looking forward to our weekly yoga class. It was both a great way to bond and also a perfect workout and stress reliever.

Need some great Kid Yoga videos? These are perfect for kid yoga in the classroom or at home. Now you can get free yoga in the comfort of your own home.

One day as I was reading through Facebook, I noticed that a bunch of preschool teachers mentioned they had started using YouTube kid yoga videos for their classes, and they were seeing great results in behavior and all around mindfulness. I had to check it out! And wow, they were right! The kid yoga videos were incredible.

No longer do you need to go to a yoga instructor or pay for classes. You can get one right in your home or classroom — and it’s FREE! I especially love that the Cosmic Kids Yoga videos tell a story at the same time. Other yoga videos have songs, and some are even led by kids.

There are even great yoga books!

  • Good Night Yoga: A Pose by Pose Bedtime Story
  • You are a Lion and Other Fun Yoga Poses

We do a morning yoga video now, and my kids can’t wait to find a new and exciting video to follow along. Here are some of the absolute best kids yoga videos.

Via Lora Green: Could Children’s Yoga Classes Help Your Kids Education?

Education comes in all guises. We naturally assume the true experience of education is through schooling with the books and endless tests that are thrust upon our children. Some children rise to this sort of challenge and thrive while others get left behind, sink and struggle with this kind of one-size fits all system and this can knock their confidence for a lifetime. Could Children’s Yoga Classes support your child’s education?
We are seeing a huge rise in the popularity of kids yoga classes as a means of supporting our children’s development and informal education. Yoga helps children to explore and learn life skills in a non-competitive way as one of the true wonders of yoga is that it really does suit all. Southampton based Kids Yoga Teacher, Sally Webber, explains exactly how one of our Children’s Yoga Classes in Southampton could support your kid’s education.

How Yoga Helps Your Kids Education?

1) Children’s Yoga Classes provide a platform that nourish and educate both the mind and body together. Formal education tends to disconnect these two with a curriculum for physical education and a separate curriculum for academic studies and so the path is set for an ongoing divide of the two. A good mind body connection is essential for mental health; problems such as insomnia, anxiety and eating disorders stem from a mind body disconnect.

2) Yoga for Kids helps in the development of emotional intelligence as through a yoga practise children are encouraged to explore a wide spectrum of thoughts and feelings as they relate to themselves and others. Even more so children learn how to control emotions such as anger, frustration and nervousness through yoga breathing techniques.

3) Yoga develops creative intelligence as children’s imagination is enhanced by exploring creativity through movement – a physical theatre for children to learn in a fun and inspiring way during a Kids Yoga Class in Southampton.

4) We all have an understanding of how to exercise the body, but yoga exercises and strengthens the mind as well. Through willpower alone children (and adults) can’t sustain focus, our ability to focus and concentrate is like a brain muscle that can be trained. With the meditation techniques and yoga breathing exercises that are taught in our Children’s Yoga Classes in Southampton you’ll see how it improves overall concentration and calmness.

5) Yoga is about connection and unity. It teaches that everyone is the same whilst also being totally unique. In a Kids Yoga Class, children get to explore and develop their true personality, free of peer pressure and social media – they get to celebrate who they are!
