Children are amazingly flexible and supple. Unfortunately life’s experiences and stresses, coupled with a lack of proper use of the body, usually leads to tightness, a closing of joints, and pain as we age. Yoga swings offer a fun and effective way for kids to enhance their natural gifts and offset the physical effects of school, activities, social pressures, and sloth. Flying in Zero Gravity is fun, and it is one of the best ways to preserve and promote a strong, flexible, healthy body. Here are some ways aerial yoga can benefit children:
Better Posture and Less Risk of Injury
Flying on a yoga swing in Zero Gravity helps children develop strength and flexibility. Muscles throughout the body are toned and tightened. As the back, shoulders, and core get stronger, posture improves and children become far less prone to injuries.
Aerial Yoga Helps Kids Develop Self-Confidence
The joy of flying through the air—coupled with positive changes in strength, flexibility, and body tone—help children feel better about themselves. The focus is on the current posture and the immediate moment rather than any comparison with others. As strength improves, new moves are mastered, and the body tightens, a child’s self-confidence soars.
Strong Bodies and Minds
Children love moving in yoga swings so much they might not realize they are working. Hanging and flying is fun! Even so, suspension and inversion lead to rapid toning of both major and supporting muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Maintaining aerial postures is challenging and requires mental focus and concentration.
Swinging is Fun
The best thing about Zero Gravity is that it’s fun! Unlike traditional yoga, which requires a deliberate approach and a calm, disciplined mind, aerial training allows kids to play. The hardest part isn’t getting your child to exercise; it’s getting them to come down from the yoga swing!
People of all ages can benefit from yoga, but the earlier in life we begin, the more we can preserve the flexibility and wonder that we were born with. Kids love to hang, climb, swoop, and soar. Play on a properly designed yoga swing can help children stretch, tone, and strengthen their entire bodies, build self-confidence, enhance focus, and promote a lifetime of joy.
