Children and Yoga
Children, wether we think they do or not, have stress in their lives that they struggle with every day. In a 2012 survey from Health Canada the number of children between age 5-9 who reported being “anxious or stress” was 23% compared with 14% from 1996. Whatever the cause of this stress, a great way to solve it is by taking ten minutes each morning to do yoga posses. If your not familiar with any or unsure how to introduce them to your children, youTube has several good quality videos that show how to do yoga positions or has short yoga videos geared toward children. Teaching your children excersises that help deal with stress and improved motor skills will provide long term benefits that will extend beyond the home. Try it for two weeks and then see the effects such a small amount of time can have!
