Children and Yoga

Yoga has been proven to have innumerable health and emotional benefits for younger and older children alike. Check out this fantastic article, "Yoga for Kids" by Marsha Wenig, in Yoga Journal for more!

     "The bustling pace of our children's lives can have a profound effect on their innate joy—and usually not for the better.
     I have found that yoga can help counter these pressures. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion—instead of opposition—is a great gift to give our children."
