If pre-teens are going to psychologists to figure out their inner workings, it’s only appropriate that the under-six set should be getting their yoga on as well. Leave that to Bija Kids Yoga at their newest location in Clinton Hill.
If you thought yoga was just something for middle aged divorcees, think again. Young person yoga starts as young as 2 years old. Bija Yoga promises that getting your kids in the downward facing dog is more than just having them look at their belly button. Young person yoga “strengthens, stretches, and calms growing bodies (while) nurturing budding minds with knowledge and care.”
Bija Kids wants to “plant seeds of self confidence, peace, and wellness.” They do this by offering “classes, workshops, trainings, parties, and retreats for children, families and those interested in teaching yoga to kids.”
You may not see a reason to get your kid involved in such a sedentary activity as yoga when you recall your youth as jumping and running and laughing and playing. Actually Bija Yoga would disagree. “Yoga provides children of all ages with invaluable tools that lay the foundation for a healthy, peaceful and happy life.” Plus getting your kids away from the TV, computer screen, and noise of one-on interaction can be a good thing.
Bija in Sanskrit means “seed” – Bija Yoga in Clinton Hill Brooklyn promises to plant the seed of good behavior, good choices, and positive mindset no matter how young your child.
