Yoga is cool!

Yoga practice, tree concept for your design

Lunchbuddies really enjoy yoga.  They report that it helps them feel calm, relaxed, and better able to concentrate.  In other words, yoga helps them stay in the Green Zone.

What do children learn from yoga?

1) Breathing that can bring both calm and and the good kind of energy to the body.

2) How to use energy more effectively so that we feel relaxed, focused and motivated.

3)  How to quiet the mind which helps us listen with attention and make good decisions.
