I have an incredible story to share with you.
I have a 5 year old yoga student who is extraordinary at relaxation. It’s remarkable. She relaxes more easily than most adults I know! She doesn’t flinch, and lets me do all the work to uncover her feet for massage, while leaving her legs and body incredibly limp. In each class, about 5 minutes before savasana, she quietly asks: “is relaxation soon?!” It’s her favourite. I had never seen this in a young student before, until our first class together.
And do you know what her parents said when I mentioned this? They looked at me with shock and wonder: “What? Are you sure? She takes forever to fall asleep each night! We actually have to give her melatonin!”
Believe it or not, children are very capable of relaxing and even love it! And you also may be surprised by how your child responds to a yoga class. The way I see it, there isn’t much to lose. We look forward to exploring relaxation and many other life-giving practices with your child at Appleseed!
