Kids and Aerial Workout

Hammocks are an opportunity in a world that limits a child and its movement. An opportunity of having the freedom to discover its inner world, its body and its own range of movements, while at the same time evolve physically and mentally, following its own rules and its own personal voice. hildren of age three to six years old show a natural inclination, a desire to climb and float. On the one hand they thrive to climb, on the other hand to balance and relax while floating. he swing at a playground is one of the favorite activities of this age but it has restrictions concerning its use. They can only be used in a certain way that limits their imagination and the need to discover every single muscle of their body, every part of it.
Floating on the fabric is ideal for children’s nature and growth. It gives a child the freedom to experiment with its own body and its natural force. The child can use the hammock in order to discover and strengthen its body parts, to move them and to coordinate them seated, floated or lying down. By listening to its personal pace it can release its energy, exercise, relax and get calm, driven from its inner motivation.

After all what is the fabric and aerial arts? A child’s game. And what is a game?

The discovery of my own self and my own limits!

A few words from the Expert…

Aerial Kids Yoga is a combination of Kids Yoga, Partner – Acro Yoga, Music and Movement Education and Dance and it aims at the harmonious balance between the mind, body and spirit.
In Aerial Kids Yoga children get to know their body better and are connected with it, they learn how to breathe properly and how to broaden the ability of thought, imagination and expression. They experiment with their bodies and by discovering their natural force and they learn how to use it properly. By using the special fabric of the Salachi hammock, they acquire movement coordination and improved sense of balance, since movement is experienced with different directions. Children develop their haptic sense and their kinetic skills that are related to the use of their hands. The aerial movements and positions activate their whole body and as a result they strengthen their muscles and joints. Their body becomes strong and flexible and the danger of possible injuries (fracture, wrench) is reduced. They learn safety and self – protection rules, while they enhance their confidence and self-respect and self-discipline.
At the same time Aerial Kids Yoga plays a crucial role in the restoration of learning challenges, difficulty in concentration and expression, even in mental weaknesses, since it provides an ideal environment of creation and expression to the child. The “happy” hormones that are released through reversed positions improve their mood and mentally enhance a youngster. Anxiety and stress levels are reduced, while the levels of memory and concentration are increased. Reflexes and vigilance are improved and fears are militated.
