These days it is especially important to encourage children to exercise daily. They spend a lot more time on the couch then before. The main reason is the increased use of cell phones, tablets and computers. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with that but it is important for all children to get acquainted with some form of daily exercise.
Yoga is ideal for that. Children enjoy yoga and learn how to exercise and relax on a daily basis. Yoga can be done indoors and outdoors and there is little space needed. Therefore, yoga offers many opportunities to make them move every day.
Classes for children are divided into age groups so that the sessions interest them and appeal to their developmental age. Thus the youngest children play with the bird YogaKey which can do all the poses. YogaKey also encourages children to imitate and observe the details like gaze direction, activating muscles, breathing through the nose.
