BENEFITS OF YOGA FOR CHILDREN

If you’re reading this, it’s likely you already know about the many benefits adult stand to gain from a regular yoga practice. The benefits are the same for children, whether they are practicing yoga at school, camp, a birthday party, as part of a warm­-up or cool­-down for a sport, etc..

If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.
— Dalai Lama

A regular yoga practice can:

  • Improve mind/body awareness and connection

  • Bring children into the present moment

  • Emphasize individual abilities rather than competition

  • Encourage respect for others and oneself

  • Enhance focus and concentration

Artemis Girls Stand Strong, Stand Tall is a Girls Empowerment Program that guides girls ages 10-13 to seek their own true voice with yoga, mindfulness, breath work, creative expression and self-reflection. The program meets weekly in a 90 minute session for six weeks. 

When girls feel confident about their bodies, their self-worth and their intelligence and they have practiced how to handle self-doubt and adolescent stresses, they have an opportunity to go into the world and fully express themselves — as girls, as women, as humans.

Artemis Girls Stand Strong, Stand Tall creates a safe space for girls to build strength of body, mind and spirit while developing the skills of communication and self-respect to empower and inspire girls.

Classes will include weekly yoga and mindfulness class, group collaboration and games and independent thinking coupled with an art, journal or other creative activity centered on themes such as:

  • Body Confidence and Self-Respect

  • Stress & Self-Care

  • Emotional Awareness

  • Identity & Labels

  • Honest, Healthy Friendships & Social Stamina

Artemis Girls - Stand Strong, Stand Tall is an opportunity for girls to build physical and emotional strength, make new friendships and connection, learn more about themselves and practice proven ways to relax and breath when stress or challenges arise. By exploring important life lessons, girls will build both physical and emotional strength and self-esteem while growing compassion and respect for themselves and for others.
