How to explain Yoga to children:
Yoga can be explained in a way that is easy for a child to comprehend. According to Christina Matsi (Flower Kids Yoga), the teacher can describe Yoga as “movements that we do with our bodies as we pretend to be animals, or other things in nature and the world around us. We learn how to breathe correctly, we play games and in the end we learn how to relax and concentrate.”
