With a constant yoga practice, I have found myself more comfortable in my body and mind and I truly believe kids can utilize the skillz within that practice from an earlier-than-one-might believe age. From balance and strength-training on the mat to harnessing the concepts of mindfulness and meditation in our every day lives, life with encouraged movement is better for everyone. Creating healthy response patterns to stress and anxiety at an early age allows one to LIVE WITHIN their body while it grows- I see it like having the body and mind on the same team working together to allow us all to live harmoniously- within ourselves and with each other. To me, the alternative is having to grow up and unlearn a bunch of bad habits so we can have room for better ones and honestly, UNlearning is harder.
Kids love to move and I think cultivating a regular yoga practice the perfect opportunity to lay a foundation of equality, love and respect for oneself/each other.
