Yoga is a mind-body practice that includes stretching through various poses (movements designed to increase flexibility and strength), meditation, mindfulness (a state of attention to the present), controlled breathing, and relaxation. It is an ancient science that can be taught to children in a fun way to help them develop important skills in a non-judgmental, non-competitive, and relaxed environment.

Due to these tough stressors, they are vulnerable to anxiety, self-criticism, losing self-confidence, losing focus, and much more. Yoga and meditation are the perfect solutions.
