Why is yoga and mindfulness
so important for primary students?

Our primary aged kids are stressed like never before. Anxiety, depression and meltdowns have never been so widespread.

 

Social media and screen addiction is an ever-growing and scary reality, leading to a myriad of problems that include, but are not limited to: 

  • poor social-emotional development 

  • poor quality sleep  

  • depression + anxiety 

  • impaired emotional comprehension 

  • increase in aggressive behaviours 

  • limited self-regulation and resilience skills 

  • poor posture - compromising breathing + digestion
