OMazing Kids Yoga on Yogafinder.com
I just listed OMazing Kids Yoga on Yogafinder.com (http://www.yogafinder.com/yoga.cfm?yoganumber=36022) and several other free listing websites.
I am trying to think of all the ways I can to get the word out there that we are doing yoga for kids.
I am especially passionate about spreading the word about using yoga as a supplemental therapy for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Even more so this month since April is Autism Awareness Month. I have seen first hand how kids on the Autism spectrum have benefited from yoga 🙂

The Benefits of Yoga in US Schools – Wall Street Journal article
Namaste. Now Nap Time
Article from the Wall Street Journal.
By EMILY GLAZER
A three-year-old doing a downward dog? A four-year-old doing a cobra—and then helping a stuffed animal stretch into the same pose?
A 2003 study by California State University, Los Angeles found that yoga improved students’ behavior, physical health and academic performance, as well as attitudes toward themselves. That same year, Leipzig University reported that yoga reduces feelings of helplessness and aggression, and in the long term helps emotional balance. The benefits of yoga are particularly strong among children with special needs, research shows.
‘A Different Language’
Now thousands of schools across the country—as well as yoga studios and hospitals—are adding programs that teach children to do the exercises.
“Every kid in the audience quieted down,” says David Miyashiro, the district superintendent. “It’s a different language they all speak now.” . . . To read the complete article click here. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703386704576186463216602684.html)
