“Yoga has become increasingly popular among children. According to a survey from the National Institutes of Health, 1.7 million American youth practiced yoga in 2012 (that’s up 429,000 from 2007). Research has shown that yoga can improve mental and physical health in children, and because of this, more schools are introducing elements of the ancient practice in their classrooms.
“One of the main benefits is that it increases their focus and concentration … holding those yoga poses really helps them get that laser focus,” said Teresa Anne Power, an internationally recognized children’s yoga expert and author of “The ABCs of Yoga for Kids.”

Who is excited for the Summer Olympics:
What is your favorite Summer Olympics event?
I have always enjoyed watching gymnastics. Seeing the athletes twist, turn, and defy gravity was thrilling. I was so enthralled with those gymnasts achieving that “perfect 10” score. Who wouldn’t remember Mary Lou Retton?!
Now years and life experiences later, I truly appreciate all endurance sports. Participating in triathlons, marathons, and swimming events has given me perspective. Training and competing in high-level events is really a body and mind connection…for every sport!
Kids often have the dream of making it to the Olympics. I love their confidence that they can do anything. That vision is a precious time period in kids’ lives and now they can experience an Olympian feel!
