Do you have yoga at your morning meeting? We do!

Do you have Yoga @ your morning meeting? We do. Here’s why:

Yoga and teaching young children mindfulness can help them learn to relax, concentrate and reduce impulsiveness. The many benefits for young children include:

  • Builds physical strength and encourages muscles to be used in new ways
  • Develops coordination
  • Promotes body awareness
  • Improves balance
  • Builds confidence
  • Increases concentration
  • Reduces stress and calms the body
  • Encourages imagination and creativity

Yoga engages the heart, mind and body. It helps children develop emotional intelligence, communication skills, trust and empathy. Introducing Yoga at an early age sets children up for a healthy & fit lifestyle. Not to mention, it will increase strength, flexibility and coordination. Shh…our teachers even do Yoga with the kids before nap time. Now, that is brilliant! Over the next few weeks, we are going to arm you with a few Yoga poses that your entire family can do at home. And we are going to bring in our very own expert to offer a family Yoga class. Can you say, Namaste?"
