As adults, we sometimes forget that we’re not the only ones experiencing stress — our little ones can feel it too. Practicing yoga and meditation can provide real, concrete benefits for kids and families dealing with the stressors of everyday life. By emphasizing the importance of being truly present, yoga can foster a new sense of peace during the chaos.
Benefits include: stress reduction, strength development, enhanced communication skills, anger management and confidence building, to name a few. At The Little Yoga House we recommend consistent practice in a group class or at home.
Yoga and mindfulness can seem daunting and a bit unfamiliar for families who have never practiced before, so we’ve put together a list of a few easy poses to practice (and play!) together in the comfort of your own home.
