What are the benefits for children who do yoga?

An increasing number of children are unable to thrive and get stress-related symptoms.

The number has increased fivefold over the last 20 years.

Yogizoo provides the children with a variety of tools to cope with stress and anxiety.

Yoga works immediately – you will feel the change right away.

The parents and children say...

We love Yogizoo. And it helps Ludvig relax every Monday. We are definitely going to use it more at home.

Katalin Simon (social pedagogue)

Eddie really likes doing Yogizoo; he is looking forward to it every time and talks about it the night and the morning before going every week.

Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen (screenwriter / film director)

Ellinor is excited about the concept and the characters. “I wonder which one it is going to be next time, mom?” She is also happy to show the ‘moves’ she has just experienced and learned.

Janne Halling (Cand.mag)

Educators say ...

It helps the kids relax and provides a great body awareness. My class with 6 year-olds has a stronger community after enjoying Yogizoo.

Emilie Erdmann Kristensen (Pedagogue, pre-school teacher Zahle´s school)

The children relate to the various characters in the story and love to learn yoga. We use the Yogizoo programs outside as well and we all enjoy the creativity it brings when inventing our own crazy sleepystretches.

Johan Patrick Mckenna (Pedagogue, Zahle´s after school care)

Head of school, Helle Maibritt Thomassen says…

Implementing Yogizoo at Zahle´s elementary school and after-school care has been a delightful experience. Despite running 4 teams per week, the demand for purchasing more Yogizoo time is steadily increasing.

It’s a pleasure to watch and feel the children’s enthusiasm when it’s time for yoga, sleepystretches and adventures with Yogizoo. In a busy and noisy everyday they learn how to focus on their mind-body connection during the 30 chapters with the two monkeys Chimp and Sweet. They have improved their motor skills, flexibility and balance and love to invent all kinds of new sleepystretches. The social ties in the groups are also strengthened and new friendships are being made.

It’s important to emphasize that the parents also love Yogizoo and see it as a great upgrade to our reputable educational
systems at Zahle´s.

I use every opportunity to recommend that schools and institutions implement Yogizoo. It’s a fun and healthy tool to improve body-awareness and focus and it creates such a great feeling of zen among the children.
