It’s Summer time and this month and next I know there are lots of sports days happening and extra time for athletics and games outside! Whilst kids don’t need to warm up and cool down in the same way that adults do (they’re just so springy!), it’s still a great idea to get them into good habits.
At the end of a day, yoga is great for helping children to unwind. It gives them a chance to take a few minutes out of the busy day to focus on themselves. It’s a rare time when children are encouraged to focus their attention inward, rather than outward.
I’m sure you know that standing up from our desks and moving helps us to feel more awake and focused… but did you know that giving children the opportunity to regularly stand up in class can actually improve concentration by 12%?!
