The literal meaning of yoga is to "unite." Bringing the body and breath into harmonious union is a proven tool to improve health. There are countless ways a regular practice can promote a more balanced life. You will see changes in your child's confidence, attitude, and physical ability after the first class.
There is no subsitute for a healthy diet. That is why I believe that there is a striking balance that occurs when yoga is coupled with a nutritious lifestyle. There is so much that can be said about starting off your child early with the tools necessary to lead a healthy life. .
My journey through yoga has taught me that anyone can benefit from yoga, especially those who have faced severe trauma in their lives. In June 2014 I completed a yoga teacher training through Uprising Yoga, a program dedicated to bringing yoga into the lives of incarcerated youth in Los Angeles.
