Why Yoga For Kids?
The National Center on Health, Physical Activity, and Disability (NCHPAD) reports, “school yoga has been shown to reduce problem behavior, test anxiety, and anger [and] increase self-regulation and focus.” A
study of the YoKid yoga program revealed improvements in students’ mood and physical fitness levels; students were less angry, more relaxed, more flexible (physically), and showed improved concentration after completing at least 3 weeks of a YoKid class.
YoKid has been recognized in USA Today, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, IDEA Fitness Journal, YOGA Magazine,
