The Montessori method is all about guiding the child to develop a passion for learning, but who says all learning involves traditional academia? At Norbeck Montessori, we strive to nourish not only your child’s academic well-being but also their emotional, mental, and physical well-being! We understand just how important physical activity is to a young child’s emotional and physical development.

Montessori Yoga Benefits Your Preschooler’s Physical Development

Through our extracurricular yoga program, our preschool and kindergarten students learn to improve their balance, coordination, and flexibility. At our Rockville Montessori school, yoga classes aren’t about twisting into a pretzel—they’re about learning to move their large and small muscles with grace, control, and a steady breath. Children follow our Montessori teacher through several yoga positions like downward-facing dog, cobra, and warrior pose, counting to see how long they can stay in the same spot. Some of our Montessori students use yoga to release their “wiggles” and to get all their pent-up energy out. Often when they return home, they’re ready to show their parents a new pose—rather than bouncing off the walls!

Yoga Benefits Your Preschooler’s Mental Development

For both adults and youngsters, yoga has a positive effect on mental health. A part of yoga is learning to breathe through physical activity, difficult poses, and a stressed mind. Deep breathing is a wonderful exercise for children to practice when they’re feeling overwhelmed, and our Montessori school’s yoga classes emphasize the importance of relaxing oneself when emotions are running high. As children move from one pose to the next, they are reminded to take deep breaths, concentrate on something that makes them happy, and to relax themselves. We believe the emotional benefits children reap from our yoga classes will help shape them as they grow into adolescence and adulthood.
