One of the moms came in today and said… ” Are you guys doing yoga? ” Why yes, we are. Right now we’re just learning a few poses. We do it during family time when we’re already focusing on being mindful about our breath for calm down techniques.

From yogajournal.Com ￼” Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility,strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface.
