Your kids: they’re a unique mix of emotion, creativity, and energy. Sometimes, that energy can feel like a Tasmanian devil tearing through your home, ripping it into shreds from end to end. Sound familiar? Consider adding a little Zen into the life of your child through kid-centric yoga. The benefits of practicing yoga are well known for adults, but yoga for kids can yield the same results. Yoga for kids incorporates creative movement, animal sounds, make-believe play, and unique physical activity that will allow them to exercise and burn energy, all while having fun. The best part: you can do it with them, reap the same rewards and have some belly laughs along the way.
