“Yoga means addition – addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul.”
― Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations
Yoga, over the years, has increasingly become popular with adults and children alike. It is a proven activity for people suffering from various ailments such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or even heart disease.
In an article published in artofliving.org, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, “Yoga is not just exercise and asanas. It is the emotional integration and spiritual elevation with a touch of mystic element, which gives you a glimpse of something beyond all imagination.”
Let us take a look at how Yoga can be practised by the entire family. According to an article titled Yoga With The Family: A Mini Class To Get You Started by Gopala Amir-Yaffe published in doyouyoga.com, yoga is one fun activity that not only has a host of physical benefits but will also bring you and your children together.
To start with, you can do the following:
- Warm up is essential and follow the leader – members of the family must follow the movements of the person in the family who is most experienced.
- Each family member can choose two to three of their favourite yoga poses for everyone to connect through.
- One person can guide the others in the technique of breathing properly.
Yoga classes for the whole family offer a wonderful opportunity for parents and children alike to relax, strengthen, have fun and get fit together.
