Yoga helps to form a correct posture, as it strengthens the muscular corset. In addition, for children who are overweight and who do not have the opportunity or desire to actively move, a set of asanas will become an excellent assistant in the struggle for harmony. Yoga classes with children are held in a playful form. The instructor tries to get hold of the child's imagination with the help of a fairy tale. Children like to copy the behavior of animals, so they will happily repeat the asana of the "frog" or "dog face down."
