Why Should Kids Do Yoga?

Yoga isn’t like sports where you have winners and losers. Instead, yoga has everyone working towards improvement and harmonizing their mind, body, and spirit. Children are taught poses, stretches, relaxation, and meditation.

These aspects of yoga help children develop mindfulness, empathy, body and mind awareness, how to cope with difficult emotions, practice physical health, and more.

Yoga is a great activity for kids for several reasons. Generally, yoga classes for kids will have a greater focus on fun as kids need to stay focused on what they’re doing and also enjoy the sessions.

In addition to the fun, there are also plenty of other benefits:

  • Increased knowledge of the self.
  • Mindfulness.
  • Body awareness.
  • Relaxation and alleviating stress.
  • Improve flexibility.
  • Create a healthy habit.
  • Meet other children.
  • Channel energy.

A yoga session for kids doesn’t need to be strict or rigorous (though you can certainly choose that course with Ashtanga yoga). Classes that are specifically for children are created with big imaginations and lots of energy in mind.

Kids Group Yoga Classes Fees

Generally speaking, yoga classes for kids typically cost less than a yoga class for adults. However, classes are usually shorter (about 30 minutes) to account for the short attention span of children.

Find yoga courses near you.

On average, in-person children’s yoga classes cost INR500-INR1000 per class.

Usually, these classes incorporate games, “quizzes,” imagination, and other tools to keep kids interested. They learn about yoga asana, meditation, and other mindfulness ideas through fun!

This sets them up for future yoga classes when they are able to understand and pay attention more to the nuances of the practice.

For the cost of the class, you get not only a stimulating group activity for your child, you also set them up for a mindful life!

Taking a yoga class with your child(ren) can be fun for the whole family and build your relationship!

The Cost of Family Yoga Sessions

Yoga is a great way to form bonds with your kids as you practice yoga together. You can bring the whole family to a beginner’s yoga class or a family yoga class and enjoy exploring yoga poses together!

Another popular family yoga class is partner yoga. Generally, these kinds of classes are called “Mommy & Me” or “Parent-Baby” and are designed for mothers and one child to practice partner yoga together. But, you can always have a father or other caregiver go with a child for a class together.

If you attend a class specifically for family yoga or partner yoga, the cost is generally less than a typical yoga class per person. The cost of these classes is generally INR500-INR1000 per class.

Yoga Camps for Kids

Another popular program is to enroll children in a yoga camp! This is perfect during a school break, an after-school activity, or a place for your child to go on the weekends.

You can find in-person camps and online camps. Because of the pandemic, there are more online camps than ever before. This is perfect for keeping your child busy and subscribed to a class, but where they can also stay at home.

Find yoga courses near Mumbai.

Some camps are far away, and you can send your child there for a few days or weeks to not only learn about yoga but also to gain independence.

For a day camp, you can expect to pay around INR6,000 for a 5-day course.

For an overnight camp, you can expect to pay around INR16,000-INR20,000 for a 9-day course. This may or may not include expenses like food and housing.

private yoga classes for kids
A private yoga instructor can help your child learn yoga on an individual level that simply can't be done in a group class.

The Cost of Private Yoga Teaching for Kids

If you or your little one are really serious about learning yoga, you might want to consider private instruction.

Group classes are great for fun, introduction to yoga, and building a little foundation for future yoga practice. Private lessons are perfect if your child needs special attention from the teacher or if you want them to learn more in-depth about yoga practice.

A group class can only go so far into philosophy since most children won’t be very interested in that. However, some kids are much more inclined to listen and learn about more complex ideas. And they may need a teacher who can give them personal attention to best teach those topics as well.

With a private instructor, your child can gain the benefits of individualized instruction that suits their particular abilities, interests, talents, and needs.

You can find private tutors who will teach online or at home for, on average, INR 500-INR1,200 per hour, depending on their qualifications and level of experience. You can find a Superprof Yoga teacher in your price range easily! Search by availability, specialty, cost, and more to find the perfect yoga instructor.

yoga classes for children
Many children love yoga because it allows them to move their bodies in exciting ways.

Cost Factors To Consider

There are several factors that can affect the cost of yoga lessons for kids.

  • Where the sessions are: Some cities, studios, and establishments are more expensive than others.
  • Sliding scales: Some teachers or establishments will have offers for people who may have a hard time paying the typical price.
  • Subscriptions: Paying for a subscription or annual membership can be cheaper than paying for individual sessions.
  • Class Passes: Buying classes in packs may be cheaper than buying each individually. For example, a 5-class pack may be cheaper per class than 5 individually-purchased classes.
  • The type of session: Private yoga tutorial, online yoga tutorial, or group yoga tutorial. Private tutorials are usually more expensive than group tutorials.
  • Accreditations of the instructor: A teacher who has studied more may charge more in order to receive returns on their monetary investment. Some accreditations also require further education and membership fees to keep the certificate, increasing the investment for the teacher.
  • Experience of the teacher: A new teacher may charge less than someone with years or decades of experience. A teacher who learned directly from a highly-skilled guru, like Iyengar for example, may charge more than someone who received training from a yoga studio.

Free Yoga for Kids

If you aren’t sure your child will have an interest in yoga, you may not want to enroll them in a class they might not pay attention to. Or, perhaps funds are tight, or your child is already in a yoga class but wants even more!

No matter your reason, free yoga classes are readily available at your fingertips.

Online

With the internet, you can find many free yoga resources. YouTube is obviously the easiest choice for finding hundreds of videos that you and your child will love.

You can also find that some yoga teachers have “freebie” videos or guides as an offering on their websites.

Some teachers or studios will even have an intro offer of one free class, as long as it’s your first time attending their location! This can work for both online and in-person classes, depending on the place!

In-Person

Although less abundant, there are still some opportunities for free yoga in person.

See if there is a local yoga teacher training program near you. Chances are that the students of the program will need to teach a certain number of classes before they can graduate. See if you are able to attend these practice classes! They might not be the best since the teacher is still learning, but you are helping them develop their skills!

Some teachers will also hold donation-based yoga classes, which means you can pay what you want to attend. You could pay nothing, but it would be better to give a small amount to pay the teacher for their time.

So, how do you decide how to choose a yoga teacher for you?

Keep your needs in mind as you search, and don’t be afraid to shop around. Every teacher offers a different talent, mindset, approach, and instruction. Naturally, you will find some teachers you and your child like, and some that may not match your personality.

Have patience and you will no doubt begin you and your child’s exciting journey into yoga!
