Yoga is a system that emerged in India thousands of years ago. This system can be applied to all who want; No special clothes or tools are needed. There is a need for a self-discipline and a hygienic cover (just because we will put our face on the floor in some poses). Yoga literally means unification and is not a religion.
This system, which is preferred by millions of people today, brings physical, spiritual and mental relaxation. So let's take a quick look at the benefits of the yoga system, which is designed for children as well as for adults.

Application at Home
If you plan to teach yoga to children, there are a few things you should know in general to improve your experience. The biggest challenge is to keep children's attention in their hands for a long time while teaching the benefits of yoga such as calmness, balance, flexibility, focus, peace, grace, connection, feeling health and happiness. Fortunately, children both like to talk and don't move - both of them are present in yoga. Children love to play roles like animals, trees, flowers, warriors. Your role is to retreat and give them the opportunity to bark in the dog pose, hiss in the cobra pose, and meow in cat stretching. They can also count ABCs or 123s when trying these poses. Sound is a great relaxation tool for the child and adds another auditory dimension to the physical experience of yoga.
It is a need for children to explore their world on their own. It is not the best way to tell them to think deeply, to do it more accurately, or to say that something specific will be better for them. Instead, provide them with a caring, caring, creative environment in which they can reveal their own truths. Engage their minds to raise their awareness while performing various animal and nature asanas (fixed postures). Let them imagine themselves as a long spine without arms and legs while they are snakes (Bhujangasana). See if they can run again or climb a tree. Let them think that they are a giant oak in a tree pose (Vrksasana) and their roots grow under their feet. Can they stand in this pose for 100 years? What if they're cut? Does it hurt?
When they stretch like a dog, find their balance like flamingo, breathe like a rabbit, or stand tall and strong like a tree, they make a connection between the macrocosmos around them and the microcosm in their bodies. The importance of respect for all life and the principles of interdependence become clear. Children are beginning to understand that we are all composed of the same “matter aslında. We're just different forms.
Think of yourself as a 'facilitator' rather than a teacher. While guiding your children, open your heart to them and let them guide you. There is no doubt that they will invite you to an unlimited world full of wonders and discoveries. If you join them, the learning / teaching process will continue mutually, which will give everyone the opportunity to be creative, express themselves and grow together.
