Yoga and Breathing

Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children (ages 6 to 12). Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well.


Mixed Martial Arts and Basketball Mixed Martial Arts

Teaching children how to protect themselves against bullying or other attacks is important but too often overlooked. Practicing martial arts, however, is a great way to learn self-defence. It not only allows children to protect themselves but teaches them essential principles and values like hard work and perseverance.


Cardiovascular Sports and Exercises

Regular physical activity can help children and adolescents improve cardiorespiratory fitness, build strong bones and muscles, control weight, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and reduce the risk of developing health conditions such as: Heart disease. Cancer. Type 2 diabetes
