Yoga for Toddlers and Pre-school Aged Children

More and more research supports the benefits of yoga for adults and children. For children, the benefits include having fun in their bodies, gaining body awareness, and engaging the body for relaxation and calming.

If you are wondering about ways to introduce your toddler to the joys of yoga, look for a Mommy and Me Yoga class at your neighborhood studio. In our neighborhood, Yoga House in South Pasadena offers a Mommy and Me class. And, check out these books. The two by Rebecca Whitford and Marina Selway have been awarded:
• the Bank Street College of Education Best Children’s Book of the Year and
• an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award
