LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tens of thousands of kids are set to participate in the 3rd Annual Kids' Yoga Day on April 6th, 2018. This global movement was started by Teresa Power, bestselling author of The ABCs of Yoga for Kids and children's yoga expert, to bring awareness to the many benefits of yoga for kids. Power shares, "Yoga has been proven to increase calm and focus, improve fitness, address ADHD and autism and help with obesity. It even helps athletes perform better at sports."
On Friday, April 6th at 11 AM, Power, along with Kids' Yoga Day ambassador Elizabeth Lam, will lead students at Palisades Charter Elementary School, 800 Via De La Paz, through the same specially designed 5-minute yoga routine that kids across the globe will also be practicing in their local time zones at 11 AM. Students, along with kids at home and other locations, will be led by over 300 official ambassadors. The result is a wave of yoga beginning in the Marshall Islands and circling the globe to end in Hawaii, with events being livestreamed via facebook.com/kidsyogaday.
Later that day, from 3:30-4:30 PM, the celebration continues with a free kids' yoga class at the Palisades Park & Recreation Center, 851 Alma Real Drive, also led by Power. The event features water and fruit donated by Whole Foods, Bristol Farms, and Nestlé, with free yoga mats and gift bags for the first 50 kids.
"Over 110,000 children in 45 countries and 50 states participated in last year's Kids' Yoga Day," says Power. "The result was magic."
