EASY & FUN EXERCISES FOR KIDS
As parents, we try to provide our children with proper nutrition, education and rest. But one important aspect to ensuring their mental wellbeing is getting enough physical movement, which has become more challenging with the hectic day to day schedules that parents have nowadays.
Our exercises are a great way to build a daily routine for your children to get the daily movement they need and also for parents to join in and bond while performing the exercises together.
BENEFITS OF CORE & COORDINATION TRAINING
Balance Academy incorporates elements of Rhythmic Gymnastics (dance movements, acrobatics, calisthenics, etc.) into its online exercise programs for kids, based on our founders’ extensive years of training in the sport. This helps to build a strong foundation of exercises that not only leads to physical benefits but also cognitive development.
Keep fit from the comfort and safety of your home
Enrolling kids in a safe, non-contact activity will support your child’s physical and mental growth. The natural production of endorphins from exercise will also boost your child’s mood.
Our routines are designed to challenge the flexibility of your child’s muscles, ensuring that they can be lithe and flexible as they get older.
Build self-esteem and mental strength to overcome challenges
The techniques in our lessons to improve core strength and coordination will help your child learn how to stand taller. They will develop the confidence to perform and excel, across various aspects of their everyday life.
Additionally, the discipline, attention, and dedication that our exercises require, help them push through difficulties whether physical, mental or emotional.
Last but not least, making sure you're having fun!
Even the most inactive child can pick up our movements easily, easing them into learning to enjoy physical activity. Solidifying a healthy and happy relationship between a child and movement is critical to building a love for physical activity that will stay with them through to adulthood.
Balance Academy was created to share the passion and art of Rhythmic Gymnastics with kids, which are incorporated into our online Core & Coordination exercise lessons.
In addition to being a positive force in increasing self-confidence, Rhythmic Gymnastics has also been associated with cognitive development in growing minds. The balance and coordination in Rhythmic Gymnastics can improve a student’s learning comprehension, leading to long-term memory development. As students progress, they are learning, growing, and of course, having fun along the way.
Balance Academy provides a variety of activities, programs and competitions suitable for all ages & abilities.
