Yoga at Ripe Nursery School
Hi my name is Gemma and I run YogaBee & YogaBee_KarmaClassrooms, I believe that everybody should have access to the many benefits of yoga and mindfulness.
Last term I started to practise yoga with your children at Ripe Nursery and they are born yogis.
Yoga is beneficial to children in many ways. Because children encounter emotional, social, and physical challenges or conflicts, a dedicated and intentional yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioural guidelines, and physical postures can be incredibly valuable for them.
Yoga is something children can practice anywhere and that the breathing, the concentration, the poses, and the way children learn to act or react to situations, will lead to constant self-discovery and inquisitiveness.
By practicing yoga poses, children can learn how to exercise, develop confidence, and concentrate better.
Balance is a key element of yoga. Balancing poses were created to promote mental and physical poise, as mental clarity and stability emerge from the effort of trying the poses. Even if a child has difficulty standing on one foot, she learns mental and physical balance if she can stay calm when she falls and when she gets up to try again. As children learn to improve their physical balance, they will be filled with a sense of accomplishment. Coordination is also closely tied to balance and promotes overall dexterity.
So if you see your little one in ‘frog’ or ‘pebble’ or even ‘hedgehog’, I encourage getting on the floor with them and letting them teach you what they have learnt.
Love and Light Gemma
