I’m a firm believer that introducing physical activity at an early age sets one up for a stress-free and happy life as an adult. By incorporating fitness into a child’s daily routine, they’ll have a greater chance of yearning for a healthy lifestyle through the teenage years and beyond.
There are so many activities perfect for youngsters, such as dance (I started when I was three), soccer and of course yoga.
Last summer, I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at Health Yoga Life’s Mindful Monkeys kids yoga camp and it was so much fun to see the children engaged and excited. This year, Mindful Monkeys runs from Monday, July 21st to Friday, July 25th from 9 am to 12 pm.
Led by one of the HYL founding sisters, Aida Bielkus, children will participate in yoga, wellness and creativity exercises, boosting self-esteem and mind-body awareness.
If you and your child are looking for something different this summer, Mindful Monkeys is perfect! Register today and give your child the gift of wellness.
