Perhaps you already know that it is very important to teach your kids about sport. It is not only about their health, but also about their discipline and culture, which can be developed through any sport regime.
Stretching exercises are used to stretch the muscles and they warm up, especially after exercise or when working to develop flexibility. These exercises are proven as very good for kids with health issues, as well as for obese kids.
Flexibility is the engineered capacity of the human ability to perform movements with greater amplitude. Flexibility depends largely on the construction of joints, ligaments, body structure, the elasticity of muscles, as well as that of the skin.
These factors change with age. Flexibility may reach its zenith at the age of 20 for men and 25 for women.
The benefits of stretching are many but when it comes to kids, it can help as they improve the physical condition of the body and the ability to learn as they develop various motor skills.
The stretching is good for children with health issues, for it accelerates healing processes and reduces the risk of injury.
Through various yoga practices – physical postures and movements your child will learn the different parts of its body and how they work synergistically. Children should learn different breathing techniques which develop the lungs and deliver more oxygen to the tissues and the cells.
The yoga exercises will help your child to learn to express himself freely and to release its creative energy. The stretching exercises and the yoga can be as good as any creative activity – painting, singing, playing, dancing, and story creating.
The yoga relaxation techniques soothe and balance the emotions and the mind as they direct them to create something creative – upright, calm breathing, patience, love for all surrounding them and developing an optimistic point of view, which is great, especially if your children have behavioral issues.
