Sunshine Yoga, in Destin, is offering a Spring Break Kids Only Workshop from 3 to 5 p.m., March 26 and 28. It is no secret that yoga improves our mental and physical health, but what many people don't realize is the important role yoga has in the development of our children. Yoga is proven to help children cope with emotional impulses, hormonal changes and behavioral disabilities.
A regular yoga practice helps control the symptoms of ADD and ADHD and may reduce long-term dependency on medication. By the age of 8, the pineal gland in the body starts to decay, which starts the onset of puberty. Yoga helps to delay this process until the child is more able to cope with the challenges brought on by pubescence. Practicing yoga also improves concentration, boosts confidence, enhances creativity and helps to prevent disease such as diabetes and obesity in our children. Yoga principles teach us to love ourselves, accept others and care for our environment.
