Excerpt:

Exploring yoga with your child is a wonderful way to connect and exercise together. Although the practice of yoga began thousands of years ago, the need for its benefits has never been greater. In our fast-paced, busy lives, we don't always realize how our go, go, go lifestyle hinders our general health and hurts our most precious relationships. We tend to survive in a stressed mode of being, just to keep up with the pace. Unfortunately, this is what we end up modeling for our children. It is no wonder that we have rising rates of anxiety and chronic stress amongst even our youngest children.
