A Nottingham University study has proved that yoga can help the psychological well-being of children in care. After undertaking a 20-week yoga programme in three children’s homes in the Midlands, researchers found that regular classes, especially when participation was good, encouraged togetherness and mutuality and improved health and psychological outcomes. All the children reported positive social and meaningful benefits, including feeling more open and relaxed. They said they found the yoga particularly good because they could use it at other times outside their classes, such as just before going to bed or during emotionally challenging times.
