Why should kids do yoga?
Yoga is a technology and technology is for everyone & anyone. Scientific research & evidence is rising daily for what many have long said: that a practice like meditation and yoga can help us address many issues that our society is facing. It’s a technology whose benefits are innumerable when applied and learnt from an authentic source.
A few of several benefits for kids to do yoga:
- Concentration: Kids learn to focus on their breath during meditation. They learn to
tune into what’s happening on the inside rather than focusing on what’s happening
on the outside. This tremendously helps them in reading, taking tests, completing
homework, and gets them ready for tasks that are required both at school and at
home. And enables them to tap into their creativity.
- It’s FUN: A kid’s body is more open and receptive. Children who are introduced to
yoga at an earlier age have access to some distinct advantages as they grow up and
move through life. Yoga helps them to become more joyful. They learn that
everyone falls and everyone gets up. There is no competition.
- Enhances flexibility: Yoga promotes physical strength as kids learn to use their
muscles in new ways. It helps the kids to become more aware of their body and
helps them build a deeper understanding of knowing how it functions.
- Self-acceptance: Kids will learn to cherish and accept themselves as they are. We all live in a society which is becoming extremely competitive, so it has become very
common to send messages of inadequacy, yoga teaches kids to stay with stable
foundation and have the clarity and energy to be competitive & yet not stress over
All this understanding & more, automatically comes to them from their own experience while doing the practice. If given an opportunity for them to learn the scientifically proven ancient yogic practices & meditation – kids will naturally have the tools to fight the increasing feelings of self-doubt, inadequacy that come during the years and beyond.

“Our classes at Yoga Nebula are taught with great care and precision to create a conducive atmosphere for learning the subtle science of Hatha Yoga in New York City/New Jersey. Taught in an intimate group setting, classes are designed to gradually introduce students to yoga practices through verbal instruction and demonstrations. We also feature informative videos that provide intellectual insight into the processes taking place. Unlike many modern yoga studios, we avoid playing music, using mirrors or props, talking while demonstrating, or physically touching participants during the classes. Many students comment on the depth of their experience as a direct result of this inward oriented teaching format.”
Hatha Yoga stems from a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body, and uses
yogic postures, or yogasanas, to enable the system to sustain higher dimensions of
energy. By practicing this profound science, one can change and enhance the way they

in your life. The body becomes a stepping-stone in the progress towards blossoming
into your ultimate possibility. Developed by globally-renowned yogi, humanitarian and enlightened master, Sadhguru, the Isha™ Hatha School of Yoga has been established to revive the ancient science of Hatha Yoga, with programs taught to millions worldwide.
