Life is stressful. Today, this stress is seen at a much younger age as more and more school-age children experience anxiety at school and increasing tension at home. To reduce this stress and prevent the development of negative coping mechanisms, it is recommended to offer positive solutions.
One of the methods that is gaining popularity is the practice of yoga. This helps children deal with stressors while providing physical balance. Whether offered as part of their educational experience or simply encouraged at home, yoga teaches positive stress reduction mechanisms and improves self-regulation in young children. Yoga focuses on calming breathing techniques, healthy stretching postures, and active mindfulness. With regular use, it has a calming effect on the mind, reduces stress and improves the child’s overall well-being.
