Beat the Heat! Yoga for Kids is a Cool Thing To Do!

Summer is in full swing. If you’re looking for something different to do with your kids this summer, skip the pool for once and try some yoga poses instead. They will love it.elevator pose

Kids yoga is on the move! Washington’s Lifestyle news has excellent ideas on how to enjoy some summer yoga with your kids. They will get fit and have fun!

“Yoga has become increasingly popular among children. According to a survey from the National Institutes of Health, 1.7 million American youth practiced yoga in 2012 (that’s up 429,000 from 2007). Research has shown that yoga can improve mental and physical health in children, and because of this, more schools are introducing elements of the ancient practice in their classrooms.

“One of the main benefits is that it increases their focus and concentration … holding those yoga poses really helps them get that laser focus,” said Teresa Anne Power, an internationally recognized children’s yoga expert and author of “The ABCs of Yoga for Kids.”

Yoga also helps strengthen fine and gross motor skills in children, while increasing body awareness and self-control.

Want to introduce your little ones to yoga? Power says there’s no better time than the summer, since the activity can be done indoors on hot days, in the backyard on cooler nights and even on the beach during a family vacation. Here are her top tips for familiarizing your family with yoga”

Group of five happy children jumping outdoors.Kids! Yoga! What could be better than setting a day aside to introduce kids to  yoga all over the world?! Go Go Yoga Kids is excited to be an ambassador for this great event held on April 7th, 2017.

The benefits of introducing yoga to kids are becoming well-known throughout the United States and beyond!  Last year over 140 yoga ambassadors from 21 countries and 47 states, led over 25,000 children through a simple 5 minute routine at the same time, on the same day!

How exciting for kids to be a part of something that unites kids all over the world!  I love the idea of this universal event that ties so many good things together.

Go Go Yoga Kids would love to have you be part of our team for Kids Yoga Day! Let us know  if you want to be part of the fun either planning or participating. More exciting details to come.

Teresa Power is the mastermind behind Kids Yoga Day. I love how she says, “Let’s make the world a better place, one pose at a time.” The world definitely needs a lot more love right now. We can do this!

Who is excited for Rio 2016?

What is your favorite Summer Olympics event?

 

olympic-rings-on-handsI have always enjoyed watching gymnastics. Seeing the athletes twist, turn, and defy gravity was thrilling. I was so enthralled with those gymnasts achieving that “perfect 10” score. Who wouldn’t remember Mary Lou Retton?!

Now years and life experiences later, I truly appreciate all endurance sports. Participating in triathlons, marathons, and swimming events has given me perspective. Training and competing in high-level events is really a body and mind connection…for every sport!

Kids often have the dream of making it to the Olympics.  I love their confidence that they can do anything. That vision is a precious time period in kids’ lives and now they can experience an Olympian feel!

Go Go Yoga Kids wants kids to have fun getting focused and fit! With our Go Go Yoga Kids 2016 Summer Olympics plan, they will become swimmers, archers, and equestrians while strengthening their mind and body.

Celebrate the 4th of July With 3 Fun Yoga Poses!

It is time to celebrate our freedom! Try some of these yoga poses with your kidsEagle Pose Max and Nia to help recognize our freedom while having fun making your bodies healthier and stronger together.

Eagle Pose: There is no other symbol of our freedom than that of the American Eagle! Try Eagle Pose with your kids. It is wonderful for balance, core strength and detoxing as you hold this twisty tricky pose.

Make Some Fireworks: There is so much creativity involved with this! How can you or a partner(s) make the best firework display you can? This reminds me of Rooftops with Briggsgrowing up and creating cheerleading stunts with my friends. Get creative and take on the challenge. It can be wonderful for utilizing all sorts of muscles in your body.

Hot Dog: Roll your child up in a blanket or yoga mat. I guarantee that they will remember this! Of course, they will need to get their giggles out first. There is something about that snug and secure feeling that will remind them of being swaddled when they were babies. After relaxing for a moment, let them wrap you up!

The Truth About Using Yoga with Kids

I haven’t met the author of this article from Huffington Post, but I would love to meet her and give her a free copy of Go Go Yoga Kids: Empower Kids for Life Through Yoga.

Olga sounds like a great mom. She remembers doing yoga as a young adult and how it did wonders for her self-esteem. Now as a mom, she is looking for a way to connect with her kids and get in shape.

After a few tries, she realized that yoga with kids is different than with adults. The benefits are equally substantial, but she realized how yoga with kids is busy, active and so much fun!

Here is Olga’s story…

…I decided to let go of my expectations. And this is where we start having fun.

We even make up our own yoga poses and sequences: The Head-Bump Pose (stand opposite of each other and then try to bend down and bump your heads in the process), followed by Rolling on the Floor Laughing. We lie on the floor, all three of us together (and sometimes there is a baby lying on my belly), and we hold hands and laugh some more. There are plenty of Cuddle Poses, I’m sure. I stop caring whether the yoga pose is perfect or whether it lasts as long as it should.

Instead, I focus on the fun stuff.

Like roaring like a lion, and making “ssss”-sounds like a snake, and stretching our necks like a giraffe. Now this is something the children can actually relate to, and they want to join me!

We’re finally having fun and connecting.

I love that! That is what it is all about! Having fun, being healthy and connecting with your kids. All at the same time! Read more of Olga’s story here.
