Benefits of Yoga and Mindfulness for Children

Research continues to show that yoga has positive benefits for overall health and wellness. Kids and teens both have a lot to gain from the movement and breath that yoga has to offer​

Yoga supports physical fitness.

As a form of aerobic exercise, yoga provides a great option to help children and teens be active. Plus, as a non-competitive activity with low-aerobic intensity, yoga is ideal for children and teens who may not feel comfortable participating in other sports.

Yoga supports the brain.

As kids and teens grow, their brains require support to help them not only learn and perform in school, but also to develop skills and habits to become balanced, healthy adults.

Yoga helps to reduce stress and anxiety.

Kids and teens are stressed.

In fact, according to the Telethon Kids Institute in partnership with Roy Morgan Research in 2013-14, one in seven children between the ages of 4 and 17 experience forms of anxiety or ADHD.

Physical activity is known to help relieve stress, but yoga may go further than exercise alone. Studies show that yoga has a positive effect on reducing stress and improving overall mental and emotional wellbeing.

Yoga improves sleep quality.

Research also shows that a regular yoga practice can improve sleep quality by decreasing sleep onset time and number of awakenings while increasing total sleep time, sleep efficiency, and subjective sleep quality. This is especially important for children and teens, who require sleep for healthy growth and development.

Yoga supports social-emotional learning.

Social emotional learning (SEL) addresses students’ social-emotional needs in the context of learning.

Through SEL, students master skills that are essential for success in school, work, and life.

Yoga provides students with the ability to identify who and how they are being and bring them into who and how they want to be.

Additionally, Yoga supports the children in the following ways:

Creativity - Play - Motor Skill Development - Sense of Identity - Body Image - Personal Safety - Acceptance - Emotions
