Lately I have been hearing a great deal of buzz about kids Zenning out and staking claim to their oh-so-famous Kid’s Pose. So, is this just some fad for the hip Moms of New york city? OR is it a worthwhile endeavor?

I’ll admit I’d actually seen a lot of satirical remarks made about it, and I did not have enough understanding on the subject to form my own opinion, so I asked somewhere else. I found a woman by the name of Susie Lopez, who’s the kids’s yoga go-to lady. Susie has developed an awesome DVD providing a contemporary spin to yoga making it academic, enjoyable and entirely helpful. For more details on Susie’s work, please have a look at

With Susie’s wealth of information I discovered there’s no much better activity for a child than to be a part of yoga! After all, it’s called ‘Chuckling Baby’ for a reason is not it? It’s certainly! Susie says:

Kid are natural yogis, their hips, hearts and minds are open, unlike we [us adults], they reside in the present. Far from a trend, yoga for children just highlights their really natures, instilling health and respect to broaden into a guide for a happy life.

I’d actually often questioned if yoga can be harmful to a kid’s body which certainly is not really developed yet, so I asked Susie about that too. I’d unequivocally state that I’ve absolutely no issues for children (or maybe I’m worried that numerous kids are missing out on the myriad benefits of yoga) doing yoga. Yoga assists them concentrate, keep a healthy body and favorable feelings. It enables them to respect themselves, others and their environment. Ultimately they’re enabled to make good selections about themselves due to the fact that they’ve constructed a company foundation of health, both mental and physical, from the practice of yoga. So needless to say, Susie is firmly on the side of fab!

Having checked out her work it occurred to me, possibly youngsters can be a location for us to concentrate on and boost our own ‘grown-up’ yoga practice. If you’ve a little Buddha running around your family, or perhaps in your workplace, why not be a quiet witness to their uncomplicated habits? Physically they’re like a piece of rubber, bouncing around and stretching in ways we can just think of! Or only make possible with a lots of effort and preparation on our parts. Workout and fun go hand in hand with kids as almost every video game involves either a ‘chase’ or balancings.

Mentally they don’t reduce however rather address everything at hand the moment it emerges. If they feel something is unreasonable, they speak up instantly, if they’ve actually been injured or upset, they cry, and if something does not feel like it’s going right, they make it clear they are not ‘having their method.’ I am not suggesting as grownups we run around wreaking havoc at our places of work with outbursts and fits, I’m however recognizing the simplicity of the world through a kid’s eyes. Which, although we too were once a little Buddha, we seem to have forgotten that and complexed things with innovation, egos and greed.

Now, just returning a bit to kids practicing yoga, why not take their simple view on the world and interject the awakening of their spirit? Think back to just how much you have grown and altered as you have embarked upon your very own yogi trip? Imagine if someone had offered you the understanding of your inner world in addition to your external environments years and years ago? I see this fabulous brand-new market as something to be treasured and explored by parents all over the world.

So, let us go back to the easy life. Pick up from kids, and permit children the benefit of learning from certified trainers, such as Susie Lopez.
