It was an honour to be on the panel with these accomplished Kids Yoga Teachers. Since this video was captured Kids Yoga has become even more popular and accepted in classrooms and in daycare centers.
The awareness level among teachers, parents and the general public of the current issues facing kids, including obesity, anxiety and attention deficit disorders, which have been on the rise among children, has increased and more creative efforts have been put forth to try to deal with these issues.
Many teachers and daycare providers are using yoga in their programs and finding it a useful tool and solution. Since this panel discussion was filmed, Yoga Alliance has created a “95 Hour Kids Yoga Certification” standard, which our Kids Yoga Teacher Training program adheres to and is approved by.
