Kids are naturally full of energy. They are constantly moving and exploring their bodies and their environments. But they also have to sit quietly in school all day with minimal movement, deal with peer pressure and overstimulation in our technology-driven world. Yoga for children attempts to strike the balance between movement and stillness, and help them navigate their growing worlds.
