yoga for school sport
Why is Yoga an excellent addition to Sport within schools?
LIFE and Movement Yoga for Sport programs teach students tools to help them help themselves be calmer, more focused and more positive. Students are educated on their growing bodies and minds, providing valuable life skills. The result is students who are educated on how to take responsibility for their behaviour and actions, and calmer, happier classrooms.
Why do students choose Yoga for School Sport?
- Yoga as an option for school Sport programs offers a unique alternative to other Sport options.
LIFE and Movement Yoga programs are non-competitive, offering children who aren't Sporty an appealing option.
Sporty students love yoga too because they get to stretch out muscles that have been overworked in their preferred sport.
Children receive the benefit of relaxation at the end of class. This is an opportunity not often offered in other subjects or Sport options, and benefits students by giving them the chance to be still and focus inward, which is often a sparse resource in today's busy lives.
Physically, yoga is the perfect balance of strength, flexibility and coordination. This complements any sport that children may already be participating in.
The breathing and calming skills learnt in a LIFE and Movement Yoga for Sport program are invaluable. For example, players of team sports learn to stay calm in stressful situations on the pitch, field or court, using mindfulness techniques.
Students work on focus skills, which will help them with focus in other activities.
It's also fun! Students given the option for Yoga come back year after year because LIFE and Movement Yoga For Sport programs include elements such as yoga and mindfulness games and activities, interaction with their peers, and challenges that are offered within the class.
Yoga is Australia's fastest-growing leisure activity, with 1 in 10 Australians now taking part, so why not give children the opportunity to experience Yoga within a school setting?
