It's back to school season!
Throughout the month, we'll be highlighting partners and volunteers who work with us to bring yoga to children in need.
Not only that, but we want to help you introduce yoga to the kids in your life as well! Research shows that there are many benefits of yoga for children. Most importantly, yoga helps kids stay fit and focused, and offers a way for kids and adults to stay physically and mentally healthy together. Here are 9 great yoga poses to try with the kids in your life -- (click through for instructions!):
- Downward Facing Dog
- Crescent Moon
- Rag Doll
- Happy Baby
- Child's Pose
Also, we’ve launched our first ever Instagram sweepstakes, giving you a chance to win a pair of leggings and a set of headbands by Emily Hsu Designs, along with two tickets to our KULAnary Gala on November 2nd! To enter, just snap a photo of the little ones in your life in action. Here’s how it works:
- Between now and 9/30, post photos of the amazing kids in your life doing yoga. You do not need to be a parent to participate in the contest - all are welcome (just make sure you’re allowed to post the photo). Feel free to include yourself in the photo too!
- Include #kula4kids and @kulaforkarma in your caption
- Have fun!
We will randomly select and announce a winner on October 1st. The more you enter, the better your chances of winning!
