What’s your daily schedule look like during the week??  Wake-up, breakfast, get the kids to school, work, pick up kids from school, take kids to ballet or soccer practice, home, dinner, laundry, bed….the daily grind is an exhausting one.  Not to mention, we probably have our iPhones glued to our palms 70% of the day. In this hi-tech world, we rely heavily on our portable electronic devices to provide us entertainment, information, and schedule our overly-full days.

Practicing yoga not only helps adults cope with the daily stressors of our hectic lives, but can also be extremely beneficial for children.  Yoga at an early age is valuable to both physical and mental development in children.  It enhances flexibility, strength, and coordination as well as assists concentration and provides a sense of calm in this busy world we live in.  It is important to provide children with the necessary tools to be comfortable with silence and stillness, manage stress, and to appreciate our connection to the natural world.

If you are not sure how to introduce your kids to yoga, we have many opportunities to help you guide you and your children.
