Yoga Benefits http://freedommontessori.org/2015/02/18/yoga-benefits/ http://freedommontessori.org/2015/02/18/yoga-benefits/#comments Wed, 18 Feb 2015 22:50:18 +0000 http://freedommontessori.org/?p=2423 Read more]]> Yoga registrations are due Feb. 20, with your payment made in the next week.

Yoga is an exercise, meditation and life practice that helps you to be closer to the inner self.

Benefits of Yoga:

  1. Enhancing concentration: When your child gets used to the asanas or postures of yoga, they automatically improve their concentration skills. Ancient sages used yoga as a form of meditation, and their powers of concentration are legendary. Your child learns how to sit still in one place and focus on what’s important as opposed to letting their mind wander and be distracted easily. This helps them in their lessons and at school, boosts their attention span and improves their grades.
  2. Increasing flexibility and balance: Yoga helps improve flexibility and balance and tones their muscles too. It makes them stronger and less likely to suffer sprains and fractures through accidental falls.
  3. Improving general well-being: Kids who practice yoga regularly feel good about themselves and are healthier and happier than those who don’t. They feel both mentally and physically rejuvenated after a yoga session and this improves their mental and physical health.
  4. Boosting confidence: When your child is able to display great agility and flexibility, it does wonders for their confidence. Their improved performance at school also helps boost their popularity and their self assurance. They become more poised and start to believe in their abilities. This feeling provides them with the adrenaline they need to achieve success in all their endeavors.
  5. Relaxing their minds: Even kids are subject to a great deal of stress these days because of their workload at school and the high expectations that their parents have for them. They are pushed to be achievers at every single point of their lives, and when they fail, they take it to heart and become depressed. Yoga helps them relax and de-stress when they feel upset or depressed. It soothes their frayed minds and helps them get back to a normal mental state.

…God loves a cheerful giver!

 

The children of our school have been cheerfully giving to others for 10 days.  Each child had the opportunity to choose the person that they gave their gift to with songs and a Merry Christmas.  We have gotten a lot of kind comments from the community due to the blessings from the children.
