Overall Benefits of Pa-Kua-
Learning about Nutrition and why to eat better
Improved sense of Self-Awareness
Improved Social Skills
Improved flexibility, strength and coordination
Practice- The Children will work on many different exercises such as stretching and controlling their breathing, and holding positions that will require balance, strength, or flexibility, sometimes requiring all three as the student progresses. This is always done in a fun and enthusiastic environment with music.
Benefits- When we are born we have amazing flexibility. Then, gradually as we get older, we lose that natural flexibility and must work at it. By having your child attend these children’s yoga classes they are able to stretch and maintain that flexibility throughout their life. Yoga has also been proven by case studies to help them regulate their emotions, manage stress, and calm themselves. Studies now show that they may also choose better foods to eat and engage in more physical activity than children who do not study yoga.
Most Pa-Kua schools offer an introductory class in which the student can try out a class before enrolling. The parents can even stay and observe their child participate in the class.
