How many of us say it feels soooooo good when we stretch? Or even saying the word yoga makes us feel calmer? Yoga is a great routine to perform for anyone and can be especially beneficial for children.
When children come into the healthcare setting, they can often be overstimulated, have difficulty coping with their anxiety, or even have the instructions by their medical team to get out of bed and walk and move. Yoga has been supported by research to provide benefits for the following:
- Obesity, ADHD, Asthma, and Diabetes
- Autism, physical disabilities and other disorders
- Emotional regulation
- Sensory Integration
- Developing positive character
