Yoga is an excellent recreational activity for all children, including those with
developmental disabilities. Yoga is non-competitive and is focused on building
self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-control. Children will learn how to use their
breath to calm and center their minds. They will learn how to honor and move their
bodies to strengthen and elongate their muscles. It is an activity they can do
throughout their lifetime
Who can benefit?
All children could benefit from learning how their breath affects their
mental state, how to control their emotions, how to focus and concentrate
their minds while maintaining a lifelong fitness activity.
