Yoga For Youngsters
These days, adults aren’t the only ones benefiting from the physical and mental benefits of yoga. Kids are getting into the act too — right at their local library.
Two Hillsborough County libraries are currently offering free yoga sessions for children. The C. Blythe Andrews, Jr. Public Library in College Hill is hosting “The ABC’s and 123’s of Yoga for Pre-schoolers” once a month for four sessions beginning Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 10:15 a.m. The Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library in South Tampa is offering “Baby and Toddler Yoga” on Fridays through April at 11:30 a.m. Both programs are being taught by instructors from Lucky Cat Yoga. The half-hour sessions consist of a fun mix of music and movement, and introduces preschoolers to yoga basics such as breathing techniques and simple poses.
Look for more child-friendly yoga programs like these at your local library in the coming months.
