According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.5 million American children have been diagnosed with ADHD in the last four years, while 17% of children are considered overweight or obese. With over-stimulating schedules, ADHD, childhood obesity, anxiety, and depression on the rise, the spiritual and physical discipline of yoga can truly benefit the overall health of our children. Here’s How: Kids who practice yoga, experience a deeper awareness of their physical bodies, increased flexibility and concentration in a non-competitive and fun environment that encourages their spirits to be at peace.
We are a team of mothers, writers and artists who were inspired to collaborate on this children’s yoga application from an original yoga lesson plan written by Rachel Glowacki (RYT). As a Kids’ Yoga Director for Holy Yoga and a Master Holy Yoga teacher, Rachel has been teaching yoga for the past three years. She is passionate about connecting children to their hearts, minds and bodies through yoga and breath affirmations. Danielle Cather, certified kid yoga teacher, illustrator, and a co-creator brought this journey to life through whimsical illustrations and vibrant colors. Anne Tracy Emerson is an Emmy award-winning television producer and writer who wove this creative flow together for us as the editor and a co-creator. We look forward to continuing our journey with you. Namaste!
