yoga for kids

Both parents and educators wish to inspire children toward a healthy lifestyle. Introducing yoga at an early age not only builds strength and flexibility but can also bring a level of calm into their lives. As a registered children’s yoga teacher, I strive to prepare imaginative, fun and thematic-based classes for participants. But I hope to encourage parents and caregivers to create their own home routines as well. One way to begin is with a basic Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation).
