Teaching Yoga to Kids: Accepting them the way that they are without expectations

I have not been keeping up with my blog on a regular basis lately as I have just sent my oldest child off to college.  Now that I am back, I wanted to share some tips for teaching yoga to young children.

The ultimate way to guide children is to accept them the way that they are, and to teach them to approach yoga without expectations. 

Practicing as a beginner is just like experiencing anything new in life; everything unfolds with time and practice. Making yoga fun for kids in a non-competitive and nurturing environment will sow the seeds for a life-long interest in the mind-body connection which yoga provides. 

Love & Peace, Teresa
