Research has shown that Yoga can be a useful tool in managing ADD/ADHD in children as well as other general behavioural issues. In recent findings children who practised yoga rather than a non-yoga activity were found to have a significantly greater improvement in behavioural factors such as emotional liability, restlessness and impulsive behaviour. Yoga is an active pasttime to help combat childhood obesity, to lift endorphin levels and at the same time practise many of the yoga qualities such as breath work, meditation, body awareness and 'yoga off the mat'. All done within the context of games so that it is easily understood and a lot of fun as well!
