Unfortunately hyperactivity especially among children has rapidly increased in the last years and more and more doctors diagnose ‘ADD’ and ‘ADHD’, attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While it remains a problem of childhood and teenage time for some, others suffer from these disorders as adults, too.

Symptoms of Hyperactivity

Of course the biggest problem for people suffering from hyperactivity is that they cannot concentrate. Hyperactivity bring difficulties with sitting still, it is hard to impossible to focus on one task, you are constantly fidgeting and need to move your body to release the excessive energy that it produces.

This poses big problems especially for children. While their intelligence is normal, even with a tendency to high intelligence, their marks in school do not reflect this because they cannot concentrate long enough on one subject. It is known however that creative classes and sports give some rest and relaxation to their minds.

People diagnosed as hyperactive have problems with organization and structure as they are continuously distracted by things they hear, see, smell or feel.

Yoga for Hyperactivity and ADHD

Yoga for hyperactivity helps children as well as adults with this problem. The breathing exercises and meditations as well as the yoga poses help to be more aware of the own body.
