Ensuring yoga is accessible to children is more vital today to counter stress and anxiety and poor postural habits. It is a positive balance to those actively engaged in sport, including gymnastics and dance as well as suitable as an alternative for those who aren’t very physically active.
Yoga for children and teenagers helps improve posture and flexibility, strength, stamina, self confidence and concentration.
I have enjoyed teaching children since 2013 and teach a variety of regular classes during term time. I teach in a local primary school from age seven and teenagers at Northfields Community Centre and at triyoga Ealing.
During the Covid pandemic in 2021 I was teaching as part of an initiative by Iyengar Yoga (UK) which offered free classes to teenagers taught by certified and experienced teachers.
