Parents invariably do not pay much attention to the physical fitness of five-year-olds, as it is widely believed that children who cross the toddler stage are physically active anyway. That may indeed be true in most cases; but it is not necessary that they will sustain that lead for a long time. Soon other pressures – like sedentary habits required for academic work, and irregular and insufficient dietary intake – are bound to catch up and whittle away that advantage.
In such a scenario, it is absolutely essential that you inculcate the habit of physical exercise – as distinct from sports and playground activities in your child. There is no better way to ensure this than to teach your child Yoga. Yoga moves beyond physical exercise and is a great tool for calming and controlling the mind and the senses. This, as we all will agree, is more relevant in the case of children who, almost without exception are hyperactive and excitable by nature and need to be reigned-in. Yoga is an important component in the lives of young Alpinians. We have a qualified yoga instructor. All the classes are having one weekly yoga session where they learn yogic asanas and meditation to develop their health ability & strength.
