Is Kids Yoga Best Solution to Fight Obesity?
7-year-old Ella Farr says of her yoga practice, "I love how I can get my energy out in a calming way. It's very relaxing and mindful." When asked what the word 'mindful' meant to Ella, she replied, "It's like when I eat a strawberry mindfully, I really recognize the taste of strawberry."
What I love about that particular quote from this awesome Washington Post story, is that it sheds light on yoga as a tool to help fight the kids obesity crisis. Makes sense, doesn't it?
The story goes on to say that local non-profit YoKid, which offers free and low-cost classes to kids, has "seen demand skyrocket since the program launched four years ago."
Namaste to that!
