Lisa Flynn, E-RYT, RCYT, Founder of ChildLight Yoga® and Yoga 4 Classrooms® in Dover, NH, has created a helpful resource for parents, educators and others who wish to give their children the gift of holistic health using yoga-based tools for living: Yoga for Children: 200+ Yoga Poses, Breathing Exercises, and Meditations for Healthier, Happier, More Resilient Children (F+W/Adams Media, May 2013).
Kids today are bombarded by stimuli coming from every direction—technology, tightly scheduled extracurricular activities, and pressure to succeed in every aspect of life—academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Studies have shown that children, like adults, need the time to reconnect and recharge, building the self-awareness and resiliency they need to succeed and be healthy.
Lisa knows firsthand what it is like to parent a child that has been negatively affected by today’s lifestyle. “Children are intrinsically joyful, peaceful, and compassionate. But oftentimes, as the stimuli from their external word increases, it can become challenging for many children to connect with their authentic, peaceful selves. Without having the time and space for reflection and connection, children (and adults) can ‘forget’ that they have the ability to do so at all.”
In Yoga for Children, Lisa shares the secrets of empowering kids and families to connect with one another while learning positive, productive skills for managing the stresses of everyday life. So help your kids, and yourself, move, connect, de-stress, and get healthy!
