Inside: A list of Spanish yoga videos and resources for kids and families.
As I write this post, we’re under mandatory quarantine. For at least two weeks, no children in Peru can leave their homes except for a medical emergency.
I NEVER imagined I’d be writing those words, but here we are. Like most people, I’m feeling a range of emotions: unease for the future, mixed with the immediate question of what to do with long-term cooped-up kids! I’ve practiced Yoga on and off for the past decade, and I think it’s time to get back to it– with the kids now.
This is what Yoga Journal has to say about the benefits for kids:
Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface.
Sounds like exactly what we need right now.
And with these resources, you can encourage your kids to practice their Spanish as well. That sounds like a win on all fronts to me!
