Free Online Yoga Videos For Kids
Help kids stay calm, keep active and learn mindfulness with these free online yoga videos for kids. Namasté!
I will stay but saying that I am a yoga devotee, and have been for years. Yoga has been part of my weekly, often daily, fitness routine for years, and recently I’ve bene involving my daughter in the practice.
Yoga is an excellent activity for both kids and adults. For kids, yoga has many benefits. It helps them to slow down, relax and unwind. It encourages body awareness and enhances flexibility, strength and co ordination. Yoga can also help kids with their concentration and to feel calm. While doing yoga, kids can connect with their inner self and begin to practice mindfulness, which helps reduce stress and mental health in general, plus helps improve sleep!
We practice yoga together in many ways. Sometimes we do yoga poses together based on these kids Yoga Pretzel cards, and sometimes we do videos – either those aimed at kids or suitable for all ages.
Whichever way you practice, you can enjoy the benefits listed above, as well as connecting with your kids by spending quality time together.
Here are four free online yoga videos for kids to try this week.
