Kid Yoga

Children today are under a lot of stress (homework, after school activities, pressure/competition, medications, therapies, etc.) and need time to relax! Yoga for Me is unique to every child, gentle, therapeutic, and FUN. Each session is a comprehensive program of yoga techniques modified to the child's abilities, attention level and needs.

Why is it working: Muscles and joints provide a vast network that stimulates and nourishes the brain. Yoga stimulates all the systems and provides the proprioceptive input needed to get these intersensory systems fired up! Many children today have systems that are under or over stimulated. As and OT I understand the neurology of the brain and the integration of these systems. I am using Yoga to help make a connection and bring Balance.

Movement is the most significant principal function, therapeutic influence, and primary concern of the brain.

Our senses give us the information we need to function in the world. The senses receive information from stimuli both outside and inside our bodies. The vestibular, proprioceptive, and tactile senses are the three body-centered sensory systems that provide the sense of oneself in the world. To do their job well so that we respond appropriately, the senses must work together. When working together they provide a well balanced diet for the brain. A brain that is nourished with many sensations operates well. When the brain operates smoothly, so do we!

Practicing yoga can lessen anxiety, heighten concentration and improve motivation!
