YOGA FOR BETTER BEHAVIOR


julyStressblog

At first glance, yoga and your child might seem like an odd pairing, since yoga is often about quiet and stillness -- words that don't usually describe kids. But little ones don't need laserlike focus to reap the benefits. Many poses are active and playful, which helps children cope with their emotions," explains Helen Garabedian, author of Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Toddlers and Preschoolers. Kids can start the mini routines at 18 months. The poses may help your child release extra energy, handle frustration, or relax before bed. He may behave better and you'll feel great too.
