Yoga for children

Yoga is good for everyone…no matter how young. OM speaks to experts, parents and children to find out why.

T he ancient Romans had a good saying: Mens sana in corpore sano (a healthy mind in a healthy body).

We have known for centuries that regular and sensible physical activity provides a health boost for all ages. And yoga, in particular, seems to strike the perfect balance between a rigorous exercise and a calm mind.

In yoga, we find asanas that can chall enge even the fittest of athletes. At the same time, many poses are accessible enough to welcome beginners into the practice. The body-mind connection is at the heart of any serious yoga practice. Yoga really is for everyone: from the martial arts expert to the elderly, from the competitive runner to the child.

Indeed, yoga for children is on the up. Many swear by its benefits for children as young as two; even babies are doing fun yoga with their mums. Many go as far as to say that a woman doing yoga and meditation while pregnant will share the positive impact of her practice with her yetto- be-born child.
