Yoga is a practice that supports kids in developing confidence, strength, stamina, as well as strong communication skills. Yoga for kids is a healthy form of non-competitive play and discipline in one. Through practicing movements that help to support integrating the left and right hemispheres of the brain, kids who practice yoga are balanced kids, better equipped with the ability to focus. The best part is, the kids are free to move and work their bodies, minds, and share their heart and soul with the class.  Yoga for kids is an absolute blast!
