While doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them.
Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface. The physical movements introduce kids to yoga’s true meaning: union, expression, and honor for oneself, and one’s part in the delicate web of life.
Yoga detoxes the child from the hurry-up world of busy parents, school and family pressures, video games, malls, and the synthetic lives they are forced to live. Parents believe they are given the best by taking them away from the essentials of nature, which have a profound effect on their innate joy and is not for the better.
