Yoga Helps Kids Manage Stress

School leaders in Detroit know a secret–that yoga helps kids decrease stress levels:

“Taurean is one of 1,200 elementary school students in Detroit who are bending and twisting on bright purple mats as part of a yoga-based fitness and nutrition program run by the nonprofit Danialle Karmanos’ Work It Out.”

In addition to decreasing stress, yoga can increase self esteem and help to address the issue of childhood obesity.  The kneeqi yoga knee pad also helps kids lessen the impact of yoga practice on their knees by providing extra cushioning during some of the most popular yoga poses while also staying out of the way during the rest of a person’s yoga practice.
