Health Precautions for Kids Yoga

Most yoga classes for kids follow an informal, energetic format that is a bit different from adult classes. Children are naturally flexible, having looser joints than adults. In order to avoid joint injuries and muscle strains from taking a stretch too far, children should be taught to go slowly and recognize when something doesn't feel right. Instructors should create a comfortable atmosphere, where children aren't afraid to adjust or come out of poses that feel awkward.
