One of my favorite things to do is practice yoga. It’s calming, grounding and overall makes me a more patient, grateful and happy person. Not to mention, it’s a great workout. I love sharing this lovely experience with my daughter.
Lululemon offers free yoga on the lawn at Biltmore Fashion Park on Sundays. My little 4-year old pal and I enjoyed the morning together. The weather is absolutely beautiful in Phoenix this time of year. Here are a few great poses for kids. At this age, perfect form is not always possible. Just have them follow along and be sure to have fun. And breathe.
Benefits of yoga for kids:
1. Develops their creativity and imagination (We love that!)
2. Promotes balance and flexibility
3. Helps with awareness of their bodies and breath
4. Allows them to be calm
5. Improves concentration
6. Builds confidence
