How can yogabugs help children with learning difficulties?

 

Parents are frequently concerned if their child shows signs of learning issues at school. Naturally, there may be any number of reasons for not reaching age-appropriate targets in school, but often such issues relate to a particular learning difficulty.

Interestingly, children with learning issues often have normal range of intelligence. They strive to follow instructions, to concentrate and be well behaved in their home and school environments.

However, regardless of this effort, they may not understand school assignments and as a result they do not achieve their goals. Learning difficulties can affect at least 1in 10 school children.

By introducing yoga into the lives of children who have special educational needs, you will focus their concentration, while positive reinforcement will help to build their self-esteem and confidence. Physiologically, yoga will help develop low muscle tone and reduce spasm in areas of the body with high muscle tone. It will increase flexibility which will, in turn, give children a clearer understanding of their body and how it can work for them. Children will also have a clearer understanding of where they are in space (proprioception) and of their body parts, and where they are in relation to each other.
