Benefits of Yoga for Kids

Children gain significant mental and physical health benefits from practicing simple yoga postures. My award-winning book, The ABCs of Yoga for Kids, uses the alphabet, rhyming vignettes and colorful illustrations to introduce children to basic yoga poses in a kid-friendly way.

The BENEFITS OF YOGA are many, including:
  • developing discipline
  • helping in the performance of other sport activities
  • strengthening both fine and gross motor coordination
  • improving visual-motor and auditory processing
  • toning internal glands and organs
  • aiding cognitive functions of sequencing and memory
  • heightening body awareness and self-control
  • increasing both flexibility and strength.
Indeed, yoga nourishes the mind, body and spirit, and paves the way for a life-long tradition of health and fitness. Children of all ages and sizes and varying degrees of athletic abilities can practice yoga, a non-competitive form of exercise. I have practiced yoga myself for over 25 years, and have taught yoga for eight years. I have seen overwhelmingly positive results in the children I teach, and want to share my love of yoga across the nation and around the world.
