Kids Yoga

Why should our children practice yoga?
Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Yoga builds strength, confidence and resilience, and a strong body is able to digest food well, breathe better and withstand stress. It can improve school performance and also helps with development as they head into adolescence.    Join us at Happy Buddha for one of our yoga classes designed specifically for youth.
