“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” –Dalai Lama
Physical activity is vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health. The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport should not be under-estimated.
I cannot promote enough the importance of sport for the young generation, especially in our computerized world. Every parents greatest responsibility is to lay down the baseline for an active, healthy lifestyle to their loved ones. I hardly could imagine more uplifting and invogarting experience for the whole family than engaging in outdoor activities together. The parents always set an example to follow. To pass on the love for sport to their kids is the most valuable legacy they could inherit.
Through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn about the importance of key values such as:
- fair play,
- respect for themselves and others, and
- adherence to rules
It also provides a forum for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing. These learning aspects highlight the impact of physical education and sport on a child’s social and moral development in addition to physical skills and abilities.
I offer 3 different kids programmes all with high emphasize on the children’s physical as well emotional development.
Kids Yoga Practicing yoga means healthy body, mind and soul. And it cannot begin early enough. When presented in a child’s language, yoga can help counter the stress experienced by young people living in a hurry-up world. It helps kids develop emotional intelligence, communication skills, trust and empathy. While practicing yoga, children exercise, play and connect more deeply with the inner self.
Kids SUP Yoga Stand Up Paddle boarding has no age limits and its fun for all everyone. We are not only learning the basic paddling techniques or working on the balance and the overall strength of the little ones, I also teach them to love and respect the ocean and we develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds us.
Equine Therapy Just being around horses creates a natural opportunity for children to overcome fear and develop confidence. Working alongside a horse, in spite of those fears, creates confidence and provides wonderful insight when dealing with other intimidating and challenging situations in life. To touch horses has a calming effect, also children become more centred and focused. To move together with the animal they will condition their muscles, improve their posture, as well develop all their senses, especially the sense of balance. Being out in the countryside, close to nature, doing something enjoyable like interacting with horses, has got to help families come together.
