Yoga Quest

by Francene Frayer (2020-08-10)

The National Association for Sport Yoga Quest and Physical Education recommends that elementary children accumulate 30-60 minutes of age and developmentally-appropriate physical activity from a variety of activities every day and should not have extended periods of inactivity. As a parent; avid practitioner of many forms of exercise (jogging, walking, swimming, bicycling, weightlifting, and more); and Master Teacher of many forms of yoga, t'ai chi, and qigong, it's my personal and professional opinion that part of every child's exercise program include the most ancient and practiced forms of physical, mental, and energetic exercises in the world-yoga, t'ai chi, and qigong. According to one Chinese Master, they are the most advanced achievement in body exercise and mind conditioning ever to be developed. And, the very first qigong routine ever developed was frolicking like or imitating animals. Regardless of your condition, age, shape, or size, physical and mental well being are all about moving chi or energy. And that's what moving, twisting, turning, and freezing like a t'ai chi or yoga animal does-STIMULATE, MOVE, and BUILD UP our ENERGY! Even children experiencing physical and/or mental challenges will benefit from pretending to be a powerful animal by simply performing to their own level of flexibility, capability, and enjoyment.
