Research has shown that the practice of yoga & mindfulness for children and youth can increase self-awareness and self-regulation, increase attention, support more positive social relationships with self and others, decrease anxiety and improve
In addiiton, studies have shown that yoga, pranayama and meditation improves digestion, supports better sleep, strengthens the immune system, increases cardiovascular health, strengthens the lymphatic system and improves overall strength, flexibility, stamina & endurance.
