Children's Health and Wellnes for the New Year 2015

The New Year is a time for change and resolution, a celebration of new hopes and dreams, and an opportunity to start with a clean slate.

What better time to instill healthy wellness and fitness for kids than this fresh month of January.

If one of your New Years Resolutions is not only exercising more but also becoming healthier and less stressed, yoga could be the key to begin to achieve that goal.

Although I wrote The ABCs of Yoga for Kids to inspire children to incorporate a healthy activity into their daily lives, the message and postures are the same for adults as well.

To make it easier to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle in the New Year and beyond, I have created The ABCs of Yoga for Kids 2015 Calendar. This calendar is a great way to encourage a regular yoga practice for both kids and adults!

Every month the calendar shows a different pose. Make your New Year's resolution to wake up each morning to the pose of the month. You can also use the calendar to write down your healthy living goals.

This January, the month of new beginnings, the calendar focuses on the letter W, and the Warrior Pose. 

In Sanskrit, the Warrior posture is called Virabhadrasana, and is a vigorous yoga posture that demands strength and steadiness. 

This yoga pose builds stamina while strengthening your shoulders, back, arms and legs.

Have fun working on this pose and building endurance and energy to maintain your New Year's goals and aspirations!
