National Yoga Month

September is not only the start of a new school year for kids, but also National Yoga Month. This National observance, designated by the Department of Health & Human Resources, is designed to educate people about the health benefits of yoga and to inspire a healthy lifestyle.

For kids, yoga can improve their concentration and focus, helping them to get better grades in school. Through yoga
children learn how to take stress in stride, dealing more effectively with anything from tests to peer pressure.

Yoga is great for parents as well.  Check out this link which shows how people are celebrating yoga  throughout the United States this month. http://www.gogobot.com/blog/2013/09/11/om-ing-in-on-the-best-hotels-for-yoga/

Enjoy practicing yoga this September, and let the benefits carry you through the upcoming holidays!
