Why Do Yoga?


In the fast paced world we live in, our children find themselves inundated with pressures and stress.

It may not appear that factors such as increasing school pressures, busy and harried parents, competitive sports and activities, extra lessons, peer pressure, over stimulation through media such as television and video games, shopping malls, mobile phones and the internet, influence our children but they do have an effect, usually negative.

Yoga, when presented in a child friendly, fun, creative and loving manner, is a proven and extremely effective method to counter the pressures and stresses of modern life experienced by our kids.

When children learn techniques, such as those taught in yoga, they navigate life and its challenges a little easier.

Yoga is a powerful tool to assist kids obtain a sense of calmness and develop a connection with themselves and the world around them.

It has been proven that children practicing yoga display improved behaviour, academic performance and physical health – as well as a strong mind-body connection.

Yoga teaches mindfulness, with the intention of improving learning, and supports the health and well being of the child.  It encourages loving oneself and others (compassion) and teaches the ability to control and regulate their emotions.  Instilling these traits early in life leads to a generation of well balanced beings.

It is important to understand that yoga can foster the mind, body and spirit without violating individual beliefs.  Zen Zoo Kids guarantees zero religious indoctrination or influence.

Yoga is not a destination, rather it is a journey of a lifetime.

With Zen Zoo Kids, your child will learn and accept that life is a journey, with good days, bad days and everything in between.

Give your child the gift of yoga – the gift that keeps on giving.
