The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is organizing a public event dedicated to yoga for kids on January 28, 2017 hours 12:00 to 13:00 in the great lawn of the institution with free admission for children aged 4-12 years.
Yoga for children is a fun way for our young friends to develop important skills, in an environment where competition is absent. From a very young age, children deal with pressure at school, and with the stress of success in sports and extracurricular activities. That is where yoga comes in, to alleviate them from this pressure.
The yoga lesson takes place without judgment and the perfect execution of each yoga pose by the children is not the goal. In an environment of encouragement, children develop their motor, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Through an approach that is child-centered and utilizes play, children learn to control their bodies, their breath, their thoughts and how to relax. At the same time, they improve their flexibility and strengthen their confidence.
