Our Founder, Lara Hocheiser, shares five (5) ways that yoga and mindfulness may benefit kids. And it is rooted in what our children learn in the home.
Learning in Different Ways Is NOT a Failure
I saw children participating. Moving without fear of mockery. My husband reflected on it saying how free they looked. They didn’t seem self conscious at all. As a juxtaposition he noticed the parents walking about the festival. He pointed out that the parents were rushing, stressed, and facing the all too real financial constraints of life, having to say no the children’s many (many many many) requests for them to buy books.
“My Little Yogi" is a Kids Yoga exercise series that teaches mindfulness, breath, kindness, gratitude, patience, curiosity, sharing, and all feelings and emotions. We love these videos because they playful and make yoga easy to understand! And the videos are a great way to introduce seasons and what that means for the body and mind!
It has been a while since we shared a kids yoga pose, so this week we present the Deer Pose from our winter workbook. This pose is a variation of the Warrior I pose. Deers are elusive, know how to listen, tread lightly and dash away when danger approaches. In the Deer Pose, think to yourself, I tread lightly with care.
