Good morning everyone. I originally posted this article in December, 2016. I decided to repost it after another wonderful article was brought to my attention.
BestForTheKids is a site dedicated to finding the best products for children. On their blog, they’ve included an article about Yoga for Children. We all know that Yoga is a wonderful way to exercise, strengthen muscles, gain flexibility and unwind after a long day, but, have you thought about asking your kids to join in with you?
Sandra Cobain, a Child Psychologist and head of content for BestForTheKids has written an article highlighting 10 Proven Benefits of Yoga for your Kids. If you’re interested in learning more about Yoga for kids, this article is a good place to start, with well researched facts and sources.
Now onto the main article. If you’d rather skip to the 20 minute routine, CLICK HERE.
