Yoga for Stable and Calm Kids – Creating Greater Balance and Integration


Many children today struggle with attention, focus, anxiety and “behavior issues.” Yoga looks at the deeper wisdom of the human mind and addresses the root cause of these conditions rather than the symptoms.

The practice of yoga is empowering for children because they appreciate being active participants in their own experience of Well Being. Yoga for children is engaging and effective. It’s a new perspective from an ancient tradition.

The body and mind are much like a house – they need a strong foundation. Without it, our lives can feel wobbly or out-of-balance. It can leave us feeling ungrounded.

Being “grounded” is a subjective term that relates to our sense of stability. When kids aren’t stable in body and mind, they may feel anxious, have a hard time focusing or act out and display “disruptive behavior.”

Yoga teachers, school teachers, parents and other pediatric professionals will benefit from this deeper understanding and be better able to help children.

What You Will Learn:

  • What we all need to be grounded, stable and strong and what happens when we’re not.
  • Some conditions children face today that are related to not being grounded.
  • Specific techniques to help children feel grounded, safe and stable.
  • The key poses that help children develop stability – the foundation of well being.
  • The importance of body awareness and how to help children develop this.
  • Additional practices to develop strength and stability.
  • Basic practices you can use again and again at home or in class.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
