Yoga + Nature Awareness Program for Children

A fun-filled two-day that instils a love for nature and the power of yogic practices in growing children

Yoga for children offers a unique possibility for every child to experience a joyful blossoming of their natural potential. The program introduces yoga to children, led through an exploration of fun, love, and joy, allowing each child to develop and live in optimal health and inner peace.

About the Program

Nature

In a world where kids believe strawberry to be an ice-cream (not a fruit!), it’s imperative that we introduce them to nature and instill a profound sense of love.

We will be taking kids for nature walks as well as farm trails.

Farming

To get to understand how food is grown, how many lives it enriches before coming to your plate, and understand how the whole eco-system works in tandem is something to cherish for a lifetime.

People tend to think farming with green fields, and yes, it is green, but don’t forget the brown-y stuff that makes it lushgreen!

Yoga

Once a child begins to experiencing the world as one, naturally they will start being more responsible without the need for any morals.

Isha Hatha Yoga (designed by Sadhguru) is a step in the right direction for the physical and mental wellbeing of your child.

Participants of Children’s Yoga programs often experience enhanced concentration and memory, more focus, and improved mind-body coordination. The practices learnt help prevent obesity, asthma, sinusitis and other chronic ailments.

Food

Kids will indulge in delicious vegetarian yogic meals comprising of fruits, veggies, and nuts. Whether your kid is addicted to Lays or not, s/he is going to love positive pranic food. Good food doesn’t have to be boring and we’re tad sure they will ask for such wholesome meals when they get back!

Play

As Sadhguru says, being a sport means you are willing to play. If there is anything that is truly close to a spiritual process, in the normal course of life, that is sports.

Playing a game gives you an understanding that without absolute involvement, you cannot be successful. You have to play as if your life depends on it. For the growth of the children, it is very important that they learn to be playful.
