Yoga and mindfulness instruction are powerful evidence-based practices that support children's physical, mental, emotional and social health.

 From physical poses that enhance healthy growth and development, to breathing practices that reduce stress and anxiety, to exercises that build focus by helping children to navigate internal and external distractions, these approaches support kids in every dimension of learning and social-emotional wellness.
