Relaxation for Children is so important. There is no doubt that the current situation we find ourselves in is having an impact on our children. Whether it be that they are just missing their friends or are showing signs of stress and anxiety; our children’s lives have changed massively over the past year. Whilst this has been challenging for children there is also an argument that they will be more resilient as a result.
This week is #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek and I want to do something a bit different to help. So here is a free guided relaxation that is suitable for children aged 9-13 years old.
I am passionate about teaching children skills from a young age to help them to manage stress and anxiety so I hope this relaxation helps. I wish that I had these skills and tools whilst I was growing up to help me manage my anger.
This rainbow relaxation comes from my Dru Yoga Kids and Teens training. Using the image of a rainbow it creates an opportunity for children to replace worries and negative thoughts with positive affirmations. I would recommend doing this relaxation daily if possible to help your child to manage stress and anxiety.
I’m not currently teaching any yoga classes for children, however, if you enjoy this let me know and I will look at putting together a prerecorded package of relaxations together and maybe even some movement ones too.
Let me know in the comments how your children get on or if you have any questions.
