The 21st of June marks a very important day in each of our calendars… International Yoga Day!
At YogaBugs we think that it is very important for children to get the opportunity to express themselves through their imagination and help develop their confidence along the way.
We have found three very important ways in which Yoga can help support those with mental health struggles.
Breathe out the problems
Those who are stressed are commonly found to breathe from the chest rather than deep from the lungs, (this is proven to be able to help children’s breathing after classes). Also, the sound of breathing can have a calming effect on children, which really helps some of our own YogaBugs during classes.
Even participating in Yoga for a minute of your day can release chemicals called “GABA”. This chemical helps stop anxiety from developing in the body. Everyone needs a happier brain from time to time, which is one of the reasons why Yoga always wins against mental health.
Doctors around the world have now even started prescribing Yoga as a way to tackle stress. After results have found that it can reduce levels of depression especially in children, it is becoming more and more popular. At YogaBugs we understand that children have problems of their own, which is considered when we teach our classes.
We hope that this article helped you learn a little more about Yoga and how it can help just about everyone… Happy International Yoga Day!
