I find with yoga, kids come and they can just be themselves, they don’t have to necessarily accomplish anything particular. They don’t have to be anything other than what they are. And that pace of just being is, uh, is powerful for them. Because it gives them a chance to really check in, to not be so concerned with what the rest of the world is doing, what the rest of the world expects of them. Just get to know who they, you know, their own desires, their own purpose in the world.Cast Page
