April 5th, 2019 marks the 4th Annual Kids Yoga Day! Kids Yoga Day is held on the first Friday in April and was founded to bring the powerful benefits of yoga to children. Children from all over the globe will participate in a 5-minute yoga routine at 11am.
With 5-minutes of yoga a day, not only do kids get the physical benefits of exercise, but they learn the importance of routines. Kids yoga has also been shown to improve focus, self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety.
To celebrate Kids Yoga Day, we created a simple and easy-to-learn yoga sequence for your little ones!
Children love to feel like they are part of something bigger–so we like to remind them that kids from all over the world are doing yoga with you!
