Kids Yoga

Gone are the days when it was considered that yoga is only for adults. Today, kids yoga has equally become very important and is in rage for all good reasons. Yoga for kids is essential as it has several physical and mental health benefits. Learning yoga from a young age can improve the kid’s focus, immunity, concentration, cognitive abilities, emotional quotient, and intelligent quotient. To help you with the same, Cure.Fit has started sessions on kids yoga which is very helpful, and I say this from my own personal experience. Your kids can practice yoga from the comfort of their homes.

Features of kids yoga sessions on Cure.Fit

You will find different videos that contain simple yoga postures and exercises for kids. The videos are exciting and involve them in the practice session. They have been designed and customized to suit the interest of kids and retain them in the classes. The yoga asanas that are included in the videos are easy yet compelling and explained in a way that the kids could perform it smoothly at their home.

Age-appropriate videos

The Cure Fit kids yoga pack have two sessions of three videos. The sessions are divided as per the age group of kids. The first session is kids yoga for 5 to 7-year-olds, and the second session is for 8 to 10-year-olds. The videos in all sessions are of 30 minutes. The categorization has been done to make it further suitable for the kids of the age bracket. The pre-teens and teen kids can practise the asanas in the second category. Even adults at home can use the same yoga postures to perform their early morning yoga workout session.

5 to 7 year age- The kids at this age are very active and their bodies, are quite flexible. If they start practising yoga from this age, their body can quickly adapt to the postures and help them embark on the beautiful journey of yoga. The videos are filled with fun and involve the kids with the activity without actually making them feel that they are doing yoga. Instead, it seems to be a fun play activity.  Thus, the kids play and stimulate their bodies at the same time.

8 to 10 years- Kids this age are eager to make their decisions and thus the yoga postures in this category focus to calm their minds and help them to stay focused and make their decisions. These postures help them strengthen their body and boost their immunity. Overall, with yoga postures from these videos, the kids improve their performances in academics and sports as well.

Why Cure.Fit?

The most important reason to opt for Cure.Fit is that it involves the kids in a way that they enjoy the session instead of getting stressed. The kids will look forward to their yoga sessions as the postures here are simple and useful for the kids. The postures help the kids develop confidence and calm their minds. Also, they need not go to yoga centres or pay a considerable amount as fees. Instead, under your guidance from their homes, they can perform yoga on Cure.Fit.

Yoga Session With Kids

Are your kids becoming a couch potato during this quarantine period? It’s okay if they are demanding new snacks or if you are feeding them with the new snacks, but then should spend their energy otherwise it would develop a layer of fat on their body. 

No, I am not turning into a parenting and traveller blogger into a nutritionist. But, as an adult we need to burn some calories throughout the day, so do our kids too. 

If you are following this series, then you might know that I have participated in the AtoZ Blogging Challenge with #BlogChatterA2Z and the topic for this blogging challenge is the list of fun activities to do with your kids during the quarantine period. 

We have come a long way and this is the second last alphabet of the series i.e., Y and Y for Yoga Sessions with Kids. I know I have included exercise as one of the activities in this series. But, yoga and exercise are two different things. And, moreover, you should need to know the basic asanas of Yoga as it has multiple benefits.

Earlier kids are used to busy with their homework, schools, and playing and now they don’t have to do these things until the lockdown is over, so why not teach them something different. Yoga isn’t a one-day activity like most of the exercises. If you want your kids to practice yoga and gain its benefits, then they need to do it consistently. 

Material Required for the Yoga Session With Kids

If you know yoga perfectly then you just need a yoga mat to perform all the asanas. If you don’t know, there are a lot of YouTube tutorials that teach step by step Yoga Asanas that you can do with your kids. 

How to do “Yoga Session With Kids” 

Before starting away from the yoga asanas, tell them about the Yoga along with its history. Also, don’t forget to tell the benefits of Yoga to our mind and body. Because this might tempt them to follow it regularly. 

Teach them the breathing techniques. One of the most known breathing techniques is to inhale the oxygen until the count of three and exhale it by making a buzzing sound like a bee. Let them repeat this breathing technique 3-5 times and let them identify the sensation when they repeat this activity. 

Now, start with some of the basic poses like Cobra Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Frog/Squat Pose, Butterfly Yoga Pose, Puppy Pose, and Balancing Flamingo Pose. With every yoga pose, tell them their benefits and keep an eye on their moments if they are doing it correctly or not. 

Key Learnings 

As we all know, Yoga enhances flexibility and also gives a much needed mental peace. I have also added meditation along with the yoga sessions to multiply its positive effects. 

My Overall Experience

It was such a great activity to do it with kids and you can also invite other family members to participate as well. This will help to encourage the child and it can be a great habit that might be developed within your kids. 

So, try out this activity with your kids too, and don’t forget to share the experience in the comment section below. If possible, you can also share the pictures of doing Yoga with your kids and tag me, @sneha_261013 on Instagram.
