20-Minute HIIT Yoga Flow for Stress | Shape Magazine

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.

Here is the original article (With a link to dozens more benefits of yoga):

Yoga is an awesome and relaxing way to de-stress,  detoxify and get in shape. According to the Yoga Journal, not only does yoga improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, and improve posture, it also:

  • drains lymphs
  • boosts immunity
  • lowers blood pressure
  • regulates the adrenal glands
  • lowers blood sugar
  • maintains nervous system
  • improves lung function
  • eases pain
  • keeps allergies and viruses away.
  • supports connective tissue

For more information on the benefits of yoga, read about the 38 Health Benefits of Yoga from the Yoga Journal.

About Tamara Hoerner (1215 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
