For thousands of years, yoga has served as a path to spiritual awakening, a tool for improving self-discipline, and a mechanism for attaining a sense of inner peace and balance. At Camp Tuku, we draw on the inspiration of this time-honored practice to provide yoga lessons for kids tailored to their unique abilities and interests. Under the guidance of our skilled instructors, blossoming yogis will learn easy and effective techniques to practice in their daily lives – with plenty of fun and laughter along the way!
The Benefits of Yoga for Kids
Just as it does for adults, yoga offers a variety of physical, mental, and emotional benefits for children. Even simple yoga sequences provide a powerful combination of movement and mindfulness that can help kids become more self-aware, focused, connected to their inner selves, and equipped to handle life’s stressful situations. Physically, practicing yoga enhances strength, flexibility, stability, and coordination. While team sports also foster plenty of life skills, yoga serves as a noncompetitive sport that allows kids to keep their bodies active while exercising self-control and introspection.
At Camp Tuku, the practice of yoga reflects our mission to nurture children’s mind-body-heart integration. We strive to help campers harness the benefits of yoga while keeping lessons fun and engaging, with the goal of establishing yoga as a tool that kids will want to continue practicing as they grow older.
