Yoga for Kids

What is yoga?

Simply said, it’s a discipline that uses breathing techniques, exercise that involves different body poses or positions, and meditation.

Practicing yoga is beneficial for everyone – especially kids. In an article on the DOYOUYOGA site, Kathleen Charles discusses “8 Benefits of Yoga for Kids” some of which include self-acceptance, healthy habits, and positive mental health. See the entire article here.

With benefits for both adults and children, why not get your family on the right track to a healthy lifestyle? Have some fun and try some of these poses.
