Young Children's Physical and Psychological Well-Being through Yoga
Kim, Kyoung Jin; Wee, Su-Jeong; Gilbert, Beverly Boals; Choi, Jeonghee
Childhood Education, v92 n6 p437-445 2016
Children's participation in yoga activities is receiving increasingly widespread attention as an exercise system that promotes not only physical health benefits but also psychological well-being. The authors of this article introduce how yoga practices can be implemented in an early childhood classroom to enhance children's mind and body harmony, develop their kinesthetic awareness, and provide opportunities for regular exercise. A school-based yoga project such as the one described here can increase children's knowledge of health, while helping them develop skills of balance and control and promoting imagination and collaboration between peers.
