An astounding 35% of the 9 million US children do not engage in the minimum of 1 hour per day of physical activity set by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Children who practice yoga enhance their flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, dexterity and have an improved sense of body awareness. Perhaps even more importantly, as children learn new activities, they work toward their goals with patience and perseverance. These young practitioners improve their familiarity with poses and simultaneously gain a sense of accomplishment, a boost in focus, concentration, self-esteem and confidence.
Kula for Karma Yoga programs for children are specially designed for fun while providing all the benefits of yoga in a safe, supportive environment.

"Yoga is a practice that allows for a deeper connection between the soul and the body. It is a path that direct us to grow, heal, transform and find our own balance."
