The word "Yoga" which is used in USA, is taken from Sanskrit language's word "Yog". It means absorption of soul into God like absorption of small company into big company. In other words, with yoga, we can realize God in our living life. These days yoga is becoming popular for making kids fit and healthy. Not only kids or children, yoga is very important in every age because with yoga, we succeed to send pure air to every corner of body. After this, every part of body feels refresh and fitness. With yoga kids learns more fastly and they feel that a new energy enters in their body. But only do yoga exercise under the control of perfect yoga teacher. like math and accounting teaching, it also require proper guidance of good yoga teacher.
I also do yoga from several years and with this, I feel fit and do all my work fastly and without any physical and mental problem. So, today, I teach the tips to teachers, how they can teach yoga to kids.
Teach Yum and Niyam before Yoga Asan
It is big mistake which is done by yoga teachers that they start to teach yoga asan from first day of yoga class. This is so bad thing. Indian Scientist Pantajli had made 8 parts of Yoga or Yoga and Yoga- assan is the third part of Yog. It means, it is prime duty of teacher to teach yum and niyam first and then teach asan. If as teacher, you will jump to third step, it will surely harmful for your kids. Even on that point, I do n't agree with Yog Gurus, who jumps to yoga asan and leave first two important steps of yog.
What is Yum?
To leave all bad things.
What is Niyam?
To act upon all good things practically.
What is Yoga Asan?
To sit in relax position is called yoga asan. Yoga can even live at this position more than 7 days.
Start Slowly Yoga Exercises
Body of kids is very smooth, so, start yoga exercises slowly by providing good instruction and importance of each yoga exercise. Don't hurry or give pressure to kids, if he or she is unable to do that yoga exercise. But, teacher should go and by personal help and difficult yoga exercise should be performed.
Teach Only Useful Poses for Kids
There are lots of poses which can be done for treating difficult diseases. It is duty of teacher to choose best poses for kids like tree shape pose, animal pose, Yogi pose, snake pose and circle pose. These poses increase flexibility in kids.
Teach Difference Between Yoga Asan and Pranayam
A sincere yoga teacher also teach the difference between yoga asan and pranayam ( Yoga through controlling of breathing). We all know without pure air, we can not live and if we learn to control it we can also feel fit and healthy. Long breathing and sending all your air with the sound of om are some of best pranayam and kids can learn so fastly.
