Yoga for toddlers

Yoga for Toddlers, Global Youth Voice, gyv

I am Dr Sumita Mukherjee and today am writing something related to yoga for toddlers. You may think that ‘toddlers’ means one month to 3 years of age. How could they do yoga?
But in my previous note I mentioned that yoga is there in every moment of life. It’s just that you have to tune the tremendous energy of a being to correct path. And it will become yoga.

Inappropriate actions or emotions under normal circumstances.
Learning difficulties that are not caused by another health factor.
Difficulty with interpersonal relationships, including relationships with teachers and peers.
A general feeling of unhappiness or depression.
Feelings of fear and anxiety related to personal or school matters.

Reasons

Malnutrition
Unhealthy environment
Accumulation of stress due to fighting of parents
Disturbed daily routine

How can yoga help

Toddlers are very young to understand mindfulness. So to deal with them every thing should be playful.

Dance is a very good meditation. Kids can get all benefits of meditation by music and dance.
Music and dance can improve motor ability too
Drawing and painting can be very good meditation for those who have interest in it. Parents have to search their interest and then they could help them.
Few easy asana, pranayam and mudras can also help in learning disabilities and all these problems.

1.Simply sitting quietly with some mantra chanting music.
2. Vajrasana
3. Trikonasana.
4 Tadasana
5 Vriksaana
6. Om chanting
7 Bhramari
8. Deep breathing
9. Hakar kriya
10. Lie down with soothing music.

Reflexology

Pressure on thumb and palm for brain and thyroid

Nutrition

Healthy diet and plenty of fluids and milk.


Attitude of parents towards kids


This is very important that parents should give time to them. Parents should make all activities a game. Stress is very harmful so avoid stress. 

In my next blog I will write about how to do these asanas and pranayam.
Thank you
