Kids Yoga classes are a wonderful way to increase children’s co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self-esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies.
As children get older Yoga can help them to improve their self-confidence, releases day-to-day anxieties such as bullying and feelings of negativity as well as improving memory retention which helps children learn more easily and improves concentration levels.
