The daily dash from school to soccer practice to dance lessons leaves little time for kids to find some calm on busy days. But there’s an easy way to slow down and refocus—add yoga to your kid’s routine. Whether you want your toddler, tot, tween, or teen to find balance, physical activity, mindfulness, or a combination of all three, there’s a local NJ yoga studio that can help.
There’s no arguing with 2,000-plus years’ worth of evidence: The benefits of yoga are many. Research shows that kids who practice yoga boost their concentration and self-esteem, increase their flexibility, strength and coordination, and develop a foundation for dealing with stress in healthy ways.
