5 Formas de explicar a los niños Qué es el Yoga

Cómo explicar el yoga a los niños

Bueno, la palabra yoga significa unión... 

Cuando soñamos, vemos diferentes personas, animales, árboles, edificios, automóviles, colchonetas de yoga y otros objetos. Pero, ¿quiénes y qué son todas estas personas y cosas en tu sueño? ¿Son realmente otras personas y otras cosas? 

No, todos son tú. Tu propia mente asombrosa manifiesta todas estas cosas.

Es lo mismo aquí en nuestra realidad despierta... No estamos tan lejos el uno del otro como podemos pensar.


Por ejemplo, mira a alguien o algo ahora. ¿Dónde los ves?


¿Están dentro de ti o fuera de ti?


Estamos acostumbrados a pensar que están fuera de nosotros, pero si miramos un poco más de cerca podríamos descubrir que estamos tejidos mucho más cerca de lo que pensamos. Los ves dentro de ti... toda percepción está dentro. En realidad, no tenemos ni idea de lo que hay afuera.


Todo lo que vemos, tocamos, olemos, oímos y sentimos es nuestra propia percepción interna de lo que estamos experimentando externamente.


Cuanto más podemos absorber este sentimiento, más conectados nos sentimos todos con todo y con todos. ¡Nos sentimos vivos y felices!


Esta es la explicación para los adultos; los adultos que están interesados en escucharlo. Sin embargo, incluso para la mayoría de los adultos, ¡será suficiente decir que el yoga es bueno para ti!


Llevando todo al nivel práctico de la vida cotidiana, el yoga se trata de conexiones. ¡Todos queremos sentirnos más conectados!


¡Y la conexión humana es nuestro enfoque en Rainbow Yoga!


Conectarnos con nosotros mismos, nuestra familia y amigos, nuestra comunidad y con la naturaleza puede hacer de nuestro mundo y del mundo en general un lugar mejor.



Pero, ¿cómo se explica el yoga a los niños? 

Esto depende en parte de la edad que tengan…

  1. En el yoga, hay una pose para todo el mundo, ya sea un animal, un árbol o un avión, y podemos hacerlo con nuestro cuerpo.
  2. Hace miles de años, los antiguos yoguis vivían en el bosque, las montañas y las cuevas de la India. Observaron su entorno, y vieron cómo los animales y la naturaleza se movían en perfecta armonía. Imitaron los movimientos de los animales, los árboles, las montañas e incluso los movimientos de las estrellas, y crearon una técnica maravillosa que se llama Yoga. 
  3. El yoga es una forma de ejercitar nuestros cuerpos, nuestra respiración y nuestras mentes, todo al mismo tiempo. ¡El yoga nos hace sentir muy bien!
  4. El yoga es una ciencia muy antigua que nos ayuda a desarrollar flexibilidad y fuerza en nuestros cuerpos, y felicidad y paz en nuestra mente.
  5. El yoga es una práctica y filosofía que enseña que la felicidad es nuestro estado natural. Cuando el cuerpo y la mente están fuera de equilibrio, no sentimos esta felicidad. Con la ayuda de posturas de yoga, ejercicios de respiración y enfoque interior, devolvemos esta armonía a nuestro cuerpo y mente, y volvemos a este estado natural de felicidad.
