The International Kids Yoga Day started just four years ago, with a mission ‘to make the life-changing practice of yoga accessible to everyone, regardless of age, location or finances’.
Inner Bliss Kids Yoga was fortunate to be an ambassador last year. This meant we joined over 450 international yoga ambassadors from 35 countries and 50 states and together we led over 40,000 children worldwide through a simple 5-minute yoga routine designed to connect each child to themselves and their communities.
The creator of this worldwide project, Teresa Anne Power from ‘ABC Yoga for Kids’ believes that this is such an important event because:
“In today’s modern technological world, children and families are overstimulated as they strive to keep up with the fast-paced demands of our society. In addition, the nation, including our youth, is under siege by obesity, stress and diseases like diabetes that stem from poor diet and lack of exercise.
They need a wholesome outlet to balance their lives, and yoga is the ideal way to naturally unwind and get physical activity at the same time.
Yoga works both the mind and body, by combining strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and relaxation. It has been shown to help prevent many conditions and challenges facing our youth and their families, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, and stress.”
We are so proud to once again be Ambassadors for the International Kids Yoga Day https://www.kidsyogaday.com/ . Please contact us if you would like your child to come along to this free event.
