"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
From The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost
Yoga at an early age encourages self esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive. Yoga fosters cooperation and compassion-instead of opposition. Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Yoga improves concentration, and enhances calmness and relaxation. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface.
Teen Yoga- Practicing yoga helps teens develop a body-mind connection. This connection not only improves body image but also promotes better posture and even alleviates stress. Yoga differs from other sports activities because with sports the adrenaline rush comes from the cheering crowd. With yoga, it’s not the crowd cheering that makes you feel good about yourself. You, alone, are responsible for feeling good about yourself. In addition, always competing and wanting to be the best on a team can be draining and induce anxiety, yoga brings relief.
