Beyond the Hype: kids yoga & wellness (not a “sport” or a “fitness craze”)

kids puzzle - hype free zone

Well it has been quite a week of “media hype” regarding kids yoga! Kids yoga being reported as the latest “fitness craze” for kids and that it is the fastest growing “sport” in the nation. Which then led other news media to turn it into a “sports vs. yoga” debate.

Unfortunately our news media has increasingly become about catchy headlines & misinformation.

Imagine if this same amount of coverage was given to accurate information about the positive aspects of well-rounded kids wellness activities?

Coming from the perspective of a Speech-Langauge Pathologist with 23 years of experience working with kids of a wide range of ages, abilities & needs, what drew me to yoga as a wellness activity for kids is how it taps into multiple learning styles, can be easily adapted to meet individual needs, can be done individually or in a group, is non-competitive & has research showing its benefits for kids with special needs (in particular for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, anxiety, etc…). Here is what I consider to be a well-balanced approach to kids yoga (slide from my presentation at the Oklahoma Autism Conference – click on the slide if you want to see more info):

But kids yoga is just one piece in a larger wellness puzzle for kids. There are many things you can do every day to help kids learn healthy habits that will lead to a lifetime of wellness.

  • Making good nutritional choices
  • Learning to make exercise a habit. This could be any combination of physical activities that are suited for that child’s individual needs, abilities & interests.
  • Identifying sources of stress & learning stress-busting strategies
  • Practicing good dental health
  • Avoiding smoking, drinking and taking drugs
  • Making and maintaining healthy friendships
  • Learning positive social skills & how to handle teasing or bullying
  • Practicing kindness towards themselves & others
  • Always wearing proper safety equipment when playing sports, riding a bike or riding in a car
  • Making eco-friendly choices
  • Reducing exposure to violence in media, movies & video games
  • Internet & social media safety
  • Etc….

Looking for info on the top kids health & wellness issues in the US? The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital  National Poll on Children’s Health measures the public’s opinions, perceptions, and priorities regarding today’s most important child health issues and trends.

Details about the two books I am donating to the mega-giveaway. Since I don’t have any products or services to raffle off, I decided to donate two of my favorite books to use in kids yoga classes. I have hundreds of kids pictures books but the decision was easy. I chose these two books because they beautifully weave affirmations into the story.

Yoga-Recess in Schools – kids yoga campaign

YogaRecessDay2012a_300_300

Yoga-Recess national campaign aims to bring yoga into classrooms

Los Angeles October 7, 2012  —  Yoga-Recess in Schools is a national campaign coordinated by the Yoga Health Foundation to bring yoga-based health education into classrooms. By providing free online resources like instructional videos and lesson plans that will make it easy and fun for school teachers to integrate yoga into their teaching schedule. This allows children to benefit from balancing their body and mind through breathing and stretching exercises. The national campaign will peak with Yoga-Recess Day, Friday January 25, 2013 with hundreds of participating school teachers and organizations.

“Since we started Yoga-Recess 2 years ago over 10,000 school teachers expressed interest in bringing yoga into their classroom. With the new Yoga-Recess in School campaign we encourage school teachers to integrate breathing, stretching and other short yoga exercises into their daily class schedule.” says Johannes R. Fisslinger, president of the Yoga Health Foundation.

Considering budget cuts in schools across the country and the elimination or reduction of physical education, school officials are looking to find cost-effective ways to bring PE back into their schools. Physical exercise alone does not seem to be enough anymore. Children of all grades are more stressed then ever and yoga seems to be the perfect form of exercise to balance the body and mind.

According to the University of Indiana’s Sound Medicine, children who practice yoga, often experience healthier sleep patterns which allow them to relax more than children who don’t practice yoga. A study conducted by the Journal of Attention Disorders found that ADHD children who practice yoga are much more likely to remain focused and are less hyperactive, which in turned reduced the amount of emotional outbursts and their oppositional behavior.

A Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center study showed that people who regularly practice yoga have fewer chances of gaining weight and are more likely to lose weight. Additionally, yoga allows asthmatic children to maintain a healthy lifestyle without fear of a high-intensity exercise induced asthma attack.

Participating in Yoga-Recess is easy:

  • School Teachers: Access free educational yoga-recess videos to bring yoga into your classroom.
  • Parents, Teachers, Yogis & Businesses: Raise funds for your school, engage your community, build a fundraising team.
  • Sponsors & Media Partners: Help us promote Yoga-Recess and receive extensive benefits.

Yoga-Recess educational materials  for school teachers are FREE. The national campaign is funded by passionate school teachers, principals, parents, yogis and people wanting to improve the quality of life for children and youth.

The Yoga Health Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, grassroots organization, coordinates Yoga-Recess in Schools and National Yoga Month September (a national observance). Their mission to inspire a healthy lifestyle through national awareness campaigns is supported by thousands of yoga studios and teachers nationwide.

OMazing Kids Yoga at the JD McCarty Center in Spry Living Magazine

Wow! Imagine my surprise to be reading the daily Google Alert for “kids yoga” and see my name. Totally humbled that they would publish this. The picture is of two of our inpatients, Maria Bratton a fellow SLP who helps lead our therapeutic yoga group & me:

Here is the link to the article in Spry Living online: http://www.spryliving.com/articles/vip-sharing-yoga-benefits-with-kids/

(PS. While they did get a couple of the facts a little off, including my age, it is true that I don’t do much yoga personally….. mainly the breathing & some gently poses. It’s what works for me & my busy schedule 🙂 )
