We live in a changing and challenging world, filled with an increasing amount of input and a decreasing amount of personal and community connection. Children and teens, just like adults, are impacted in physical, emotional and social ways by the challenges of modern life.
Kids need skills to help them thrive in the world and navigate the many challenges they face. Yoga and mindfulness practices give them practical ways to increase their self-awareness, access their inner resources, and find their personal power—all while having fun. And, you can explore it as a family!
