PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:05 a.m., thousands of schoolchildren around the world, including those in at least 45 states in the U.S., will put down their books and let their imaginations run free as they mold themselves into trees, flamingos, windmills, kites and other kid-friendly yoga positions. They will be joined by children at home and other locations, all led by more than 100 official ambassadors to raise global awareness about yoga for kids. It's all part of the first annual Kids' Yoga Day envisioned by Teresa Anne Power, a bestselling author whose latest book, "The ABCs of Yoga for Kids: A Guide for Parents and Teachers," is being released that day.
An internationally recognized expert on children's yoga and author of the beautifully illustrated "The ABCs of Yoga for Kids"—a book that has sold more than 1/4 million copies in four languages--Power says few people understand how powerful yoga can be. More than a great way to become fit, she says parents who practice yoga with their children get a bonus: stronger relationships with them. "When you both do something healthy and fun, you will get closer," she observes, noting that the type of yoga she favors is playful and does not involve any chanting.
Power can discuss:
- Specific yoga poses that channel the excess energy of children with ADD and ADHD.
- 6 ways yoga can pave the way for lifetime habits of health and fitness.
- Yoga myths adults believe, including that they are not flexible enough to teach their children yoga.
