Today is my daughters birthday and what a bundle she is, my own little mini yogi.
Yoga is so important to children, physically they gain strength and flexibility from practising yoga, plus it also helps them become body aware as they use their muscles in new ways, which in turn improves their confidence and positive self image. It also helps them manage stress with breathing exercises.
As for my daughter she just loves doing yoga with her mum, we have lots of fun times together whilst I’m working on poses for my classes, she just can’t help herself, showing me just how flexible she is in comparison to her mum, or if I am holding the plank position just wiggling underneath me…… adds to the pressure, but most of all doing yoga with your young children is just such fun.
For my not so little one today, however, it’s all about playing and cake……………
