We know that the practice of yoga is rich in benefits for adults, but did you know yoga can also have significant benefits for children? In addition to cultivating flexibility, strength, and coordination, yoga can also reduce stress and anxiety through the teaching of breath techniques that promote self-soothing and emotional regulation. Yoga for kids classes have grown in popularity, particularly in urban-centric areas. However, not every child has access to the benefits yoga can provide.
Share It Fitness is excited to release the pilot episode from Jodi the Yogi, a new series that teaches yoga to kids!
In this video, Jodi the Yogi and her best friend, Downward the Dog, teach the viewers how to stand strong like mountains in “Tadasana” and self-soothe by focusing on their breath through the song “Crisscross Applesauce.” Please share it with the children in your lives and let us know what they think!
Jodi the Yogi is depending on our donations to give kids everywhere free access to yoga. Please support this project by clicking on the image below. Even a little contribution helps! If you DO contribute, comment below and let us know and we will send you a code for 10% off one of our FitPlans!
