Much like practicing mindfulness, practicing yoga brings children (and adults!) incredible mind and body benefits. By becoming aware of their breath, using gentle movements and stretching their bodies, yoga provides children healthy ways to express their emotions, learn body awareness and self-control, practice patience, improve memory, and develop gross motor skills.
Whether you’re trying to schedule a transition between activities or work movement into your daily schedule, your child will love the chance to practice yoga with you. So, grab a mat and invite your child to join in the fun!
