Kids stuck at home waiting for a downward coronavirus curve? How about you get them started on their downward dogs (that’s a yoga pose).

Yoga is a great way for kids to relax amid the pandemic. It’s a much better distraction as compared to screen time (TV and phones).

Family yoga has immense benefits. Practicing yoga as a family has been shown to reduce stress, reduce anxiety, and lead to healthier lives. It takes just a little planning to create the opportunity for your family to come together and practice the techniques of relaxation, flexibility, coordination, and strength that yoga encompasses.

If you’re a newbie to this, fret not.  Check out these online resources to help you and the kids Zen out.
