Parent-child Yoga: Yoga Parent-Child Time
Studies have shown that yoga postures are beneficial to children’s intellectual development.
Increase the elasticity of muscles and ligaments, promote spine development, improve posture, and adjust appetite.
Yoga is also a good way to relax. Children, like adults, can use yoga to deal with tension, irritability, depression and other bad emotions.
Special Tips: Children’s yoga activities should be adapted to their physical development.
Adult yoga moves are not necessarily suitable for children. Some of the important adjustments for adults are unnecessary for children.
Since the child’s muscle development is not complete, some postures that require high-intensity strength support are not even beneficial to the child but are a kind of injury that should be avoided.
Yoga for children should be a set of easy-to-imitate movements. Many poses of yoga mimic creatures in nature. Such puppies that children are familiar with can consciously guide children to exercise their imagination.
Music: piano, violin, dulcimer, nursery rhymes . any child’s favorite and familiar music.
Location: Airy room, lawn, beach . any place where children can be quiet and relaxed.
Enjoy the sunshine and air, the communication of the body and the land.
Time: Early in the morning, late in the evening, during play . any time the child wants.
Action: The child likes to imitate and can do the gestures. He doesn’t need to care whether he meets the standards. When necessary, you can assist his movements without interfering with the maintenance of the movements, so that the child is completely in a natural state of play.
Because the child’s bones are in a developing state, no movement should be forced.
Breathing: Normal and free breathing.
Don’t teach your child “yoga breathing”.
Diet: a normal diet.
