Yoga for the Young

We all know how important exercise is to stay healthy and happy -- especially for young children. But did you know that yoga can be great exercise for kids, as well as adults?

Yoga has been around for thousands of years and while it started in India, it's grown incredibly popular in the United States and around the world in recent decades. It teaches balance, mindfulness, how to breathe better, plus other skills that could come in handy later in life. The word "yoga" means "union" in Sanskrit and starting a practice can be a great opportunity to have fun doing something different with your child!
