Celebrating International Day of Yoga at Nido Early School

International Day of Yoga, celebrated annually on June 21st, highlights the profound benefits of yoga for mental and physical wellbeing. At Nido Early School, we embrace this day with enthusiasm, integrating yoga into our daily routines as a component of our educational approach.

At Nido Early School, we see yoga as not just an activity, but a fundamental practice that nurtures our children’s physical, emotional, and mental health. Through age-appropriate yoga sessions, our children learn to connect with their bodies and minds, fostering a sense of inner calm and focus.

These sessions are designed to be playful and engaging, incorporating storytelling, music, and games to keep young minds engaged.

Yoga has various benefits in early childhood. It enhances flexibility, strength, and coordination, while also promoting relaxation and emotional resilience. It can help children develop strategies to manage stress and anxiety; skills that are invaluable as they grow.

Yoga also supports cognitive development by improving concentration and memory, critical components of the learning process. It encourages mindfulness, helping children to stay present and engaged, which is essential for effective learning and social interaction.

The incorporation of breathing exercises teaches children how to regulate their emotions, leading to improved behaviour and a more positive environment.

Through practicing yoga at Nido, we aim to cultivate a generation of mindful, resilient, and healthy individuals.
