Chair Yoga & Mindfulness For Children

Did you know that children spend on average 5 to 7 hours a day at home and at school sitting down for “screen time”?!

 

Inactivity and sedentary behavior is one of the biggest challenges we have in public health today. Sitting for long periods at a time is linked to a host of problems like: stress, diabetes, obesity, and poor mental wellbeing.

 

We need to unplug kids from their screens and move! Let’s use the chair to our advantage and teach the younger generation Chair Yoga poses, mindfulness, and breathing techniques. This kind of exercise is a new and innovative way for teachers and school-age children to be physically active, stay alert, productive, and creative as they sit their way to better health.

 

Chair Yoga is an incredible tool for health, growth and change. In this Yoga Alliance online workshop taught by Jessica Rosenberg creator of www.AdventuresofSuperStretch.com and the top 100 health and wellness iPhone app ‘Super Stretch Yoga’ you will learn:

  • The physical and mental benefits of Chair Yoga for Children
  • Sitting properly and alignment as it relates to Hatha Yoga
  • Breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation tips while doing Chair Yoga postures.
  • ‘Take 5 Chair Yoga Breaks’ postures and sequences for your home, classrooms, community centers and/or studios
