Yoga is Good for Children because:

  • Yoga builds self-esteem and self-respect.
  • A child's yoga practice is a wonderful time to do something without having to worry about being wrong.
  • Yoga helps build energy and stamina.
  • Yoga promotes physical strength and encourages children to use all of their muscles in different ways.
  • Non-athletic children can easily do Yoga even though they may typically shy away from physical activity in fear of failure or being picked last. It also helps athletic children to excel in other physical activities and sports.
  • Yoga also calms a child and reduces stress.
  • Yoga is one of very few (if any) non-competitive activities that a child can participate in. In day-to-day life, children compete on everything. Who's the smartest? The tallest? The prettiest? The most popular? Who's the best athlete? Who's got the best and latest gadget? The list goes on.
  • Yoga greatly improves internal health. Each asana not only builds muscular strength, but it also massages and maintains healthy internal organs. Twists, for example, literally wring out the central core.
  • The balancing poses (a key yogic element) promote mental and physical balance. Mental clarity and balance occur when practicing the poses. Even if a child never learns to stand on one foot, if they can learn to stay calm when they fall—and to get up and try again—they’ve learned balance.
  • As children steadily learn to increase their physical balance, they develop a sense of achievement and self-esteem.
  • Closely tied with balance is the element of coordination. Children learn how to use their bodies in different ways. Through trans-axial movement (across the axis of the spine), their mind is challenged and trained for greater coordination.
  • Concentration is a clear benefit of children's yoga. There is much documented evidence that yoga assists children to focus and concentrate in school and get better grades. This is because the asana practice encourages children to clear their minds and create a single-minded focus on the task at hand.
  • Yoga promotes body awareness. An integral part to the practices is the knowledge of the body and its workings. Young children learn about their spines, joints, and muscles. They learn how to manipulate their bodies and maximize their mobility. In yoga, we believe that the whole body is connected and every little bit is significant. Just as our heart and lungs have an important function, so too are our little toes to the top of our head. Therefore, we learn to keep all of our body parts alive and supple, no matter how seemingly insignificant.
  • Yoga develops creative thinking skills and encourages original thought. Yoga is a practice that is imaginative in nature.
  • The way we can grow in life is through challenge. Think of challenges as opportunities, rather than difficulties. Even if a child is facing an intense challenge with a particular pose or activity, yoga encourages them to try. The child is taught to modify the pose, if necessary (flexibility!) in order to find the success within the challenge.
  • In yoga, children learn to take turns, to be nice, and to respect each other. It is very important to promote kindness and sharing in all children's classes. Everyone in a yoga class consider each other friends and equals, regardless of labels (positive or negative) that others may give them in school.
  • Very importantly Yoga is fun. Simply plain fun!

Kate Nirlipta is an inspiring beautiful teacher, she taught me how to balance my unbalanced guna's, she gave encouragement with her compassion and I had special emotional moment through her session class. Thank you for guiding me to understand the "Svadhyaya" and the yoga lifestyle about "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the light". Always love her meditation, relaxation and evening activity. Love the healing power of song "I am the light of my soul" every time I hear the song my heart & soul feels like a blooming lotus flower. I feel so blessed to have you as my teacher and you have helped me to spread my wings…absolutely transforming. Terima kasih banyak ibu cantik. Love always

I am delighted to recommend Kate Nirlipta to anyone at all who is interested in experiencing heart based wisdom through embodied yoga. She is simply the best yoga teacher I have been fortunate enough to learn from. Her approach remains influential in my own practice and teaching. Kate first inspired me fifteen years ago to practice yoga. I was an ex dance teacher still grappling with issues resulting from a car accident and a crushed T12. Her sensitive and knowledgable teaching helped me discover a new way of experiencing my self and my body and began my love affair with the transformative power of yoga on all levels. She also introduced me to the incredible practice of Yoga Nidra . Last year in 2012 I attended a yoga teacher training intensive in Bali largely for the opportunity to again learn from Kate. Her mastery as a teacher and her heart felt warmth and compassion was acknowledged and highly valued by all in the course who were wide ranging in age and cultural backgrounds. She embodies her teaching and has encouraged us all to find our own authentic way to do this in our practice and the classes we offer. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from her and would encourage anyone of any age or experience to take to opportunity to learn from this outstanding teacher.

I love yoga with Kate! Yoga day is my favourite day of the week, a special time I dedicate to myself.
Kate has shown me that yoga is so much more than postures and stretches.Her knowledge and experience is shared gently with love and kindness.The Breathing Space studio is filled with loving, healing energy. Natural light floods the room, the birds sing in the garden and the ocean waves area gentle sigh in the distance. A very special place to practice yoga and meditation.
I feel blessed to have found Kate and her classes. Her yoga is the real deal, truly a mind, body and spirit experience. Thank you Kate.
