Research in yoga in both studio and school settings is beginning to show measurable benefits for kids.

“Children who practice yoga may not only be better able to regulate their emotions, manage stress and calm themselves, studies now show that they may also choose better foods to eat and engage in more physical activity than children who do not,” writes Mira Binzen in her article Yoga for Children–Now Proven Effective!
