Why does Jo Yoga Work??
Science bit –Yoga in the past has been used as a spiritual practice, to reach a state of ‘no mind’ in which ultimate happiness is supposedly residing.
Today and with the Jo Yoga Methodology, Yoga is a practice, made up of many components, which equips and enables the ‘Yogi’ or practitioner to be healthier, happier and to be themselves, fully.
Sound changes the vibrations within the brain and body, altering the flow of energy and electricity.
Hand gestures (mudras) use pressure points in the hands & fingers to alter the electromagnetic impulses of the body (Kirtan Kriya, SA TA NA MA has been proved to lessen alzheimers disease and depression sharpening the brain)
Movement releases held tension and anxiety in the muscles and joints. Growing bodies need to be moved in non-contact, non-weight bearing movement. This improved blood circulation, bone density and the increase in oxygen via the breath awareness, increase the function of the vital organs.
During a session, they are encouraged to use their own words and language when speaking to themselves, although always positive (which for many children is difficult).
Skills to manage breath and breathing patterns, both with and without body or hand movements, are used for children to discover how to manage their emotions and responses.
Tension and aches within a growing body are relieved and removed using traditional yoga poses alongside Kundalini Yoga (a yoga system that uses the spine, breath & sound) techniques.
Deep relaxation. Children struggle to relax and yet it is in these moments of peace and reflection that enable the child to experience their own sense of self and grow openhearted into the person they are destined to be.
Meditation – In this methodology, meditation tools from various traditions are fused together to enable the class to alter brain patterns, find their voices and change habits.

How is Yoga beneficial for Children's Mental Health?
10% of children suffer from some form of mental health illness.
That means that in a school classroom of 30 children there are 3 gorgeous kiddies experiencing depression or anxiety at any given moment.
It makes me want to cry just thinking about it.
We, as the guiding generation, MUST do something about it.
