Kids are so overloaded these days. Some do not have proper time to decompress and analyze their feelings, or know how.

There are lots of games and songs, fun yoga poses and then we end with what I call “happy thoughts” guided meditation and breathing exercises. Everything they experience and learn during yoga class they can then apply to everyday situation. Parents are highly encouraged to participate and all you really need is a towel, grass mat or yoga mat.
