Try out these fun classes: Yoga for Kids in Abu Dhabi
Looking for an activity that the children can benefit from? Practicing yoga on a regular basis made us realize how beneficial and powerful yoga classes could actually be for our little ones, especially after the hectic school routine.
A few years ago, we would have really struggled to find a studio offering a yoga class dedicated to kids and after doing some research, we noticed it has finally become something more accessible and spread out over the city.
That’s why we came up with an updated round-up that could be useful for your little ones or teens, on a regular basis or just before important exams and deadlines, to let the stress go away and feel more relaxed, positive and energized.

Yoga teaches kids to persevere, be patient, and work toward their goals.
Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Balancing poses were created to promote mental and physical poise, as mental clarity and stability emerge from the effort of trying the poses.
As children learn to improve their physical balance, they will be filled with a sense of accomplishment. Coordination is also closely tied to balance and promotes overall dexterity. It develops focus and concentration. The act of practicing poses encourages children to clear their mind and focus on the effort.
As a result of this single focus to achieve a particular pose or stay balanced, yoga helps children to focus and concentrate in school and get better grades, several studies note. Yoga helps to instill confidence and to bring learning to children on an experiential level.
