Yoga With Kids

You Are a Lion!

Add a little yoga to your child's morning routine or help your little one wind down before bed with some deep breathing and restful poses. Practicing yoga with kids is a fun and gentle way to exercise. Plus, yoga provides a chance to bond with your child while introducing new vocabulary words. Moo and meow in cat-cow pose or sing your favorite nursery rhymes as you hold a balance pose.

In addition to physical benefits like improved balance and coordination and mental benefits like better concentration, yoga offers an opportunity to spend quality time with your child while improving her vocabulary. Having a large vocabulary and understanding the meaning behind words leads to reading success and achievement later in school.
