What are the benefits of Yoga for Kids and Teens?
Yoga creates a balance of mind and body, reduces stress, improves physical flexibility, and keeps kids fit and healthy. Children’s yoga differs from adults yoga in that it is play centred yoga. This keeps kids interested and involved and teaches yoga stances without them even realising they are doing it.
What are the benefits of Pilates for Teens?
Pilates can be a safe and low impact way to get children’s developing bodies and minds moving in healthier ways. Pilates is suitable for kids and teens with all levels of fitness and abilities and allows them to work systematically and progressively on their strength, endurance and flexibility.
If you have a sporty kid Pilates can help prevent them from becoming injured, strengthening their bodies and particularly their flexibility so that they can recover quicker from any extreme physical endurance they’re put through. Pilates is complimentary to dynamic sports that require lots of mobility and movement such as hockey, tennis, swimming, football, rugby and basketball. There is a synergy between the worlds of dance and practising Pilates as this can add strength and balance to their dance repertoires.
