yoga for kids? Absolutely! A centuries old practice, yoga has been recognized as an required practice for physical and mental health. The benefits of yoga are numerous. Why shouldn't our children share in these benefits as well? Our kids can adopt this practice immediately which leads to improved flexibility, coordination, increased strength, enhanced concentration and stress relief, which will result in a lifetime of benefits for them! Kids are NOT just small adults, contrary to what many may believe. You have to use a different approach... a different setting.Your kids may have difficulty doing the normal yoga poses the way they're supposed to, but they can still benefit from the practice of yoga. Yoga for kids has to be entertaining and fun simultaneously! Yes, the normal asanas are the framework, but to keep the kids having fun the resulting postures are more interpretive in nature. There are classes starting up for kids nationally. They deal with this "fun" requirement by incorporating music, storytelling, games, animal references, arts and crafts. Classes are offered for kids as young as toddlers! Just be sure the teacher has the requisite training to teach children.
