How Yoga, mindfullness and downward dog (chasing a cat!) can help your little one.
Leonie Percy is a Psychologist and kids’ yoga teacher. Here she shares some simple tips on how you can introduce your toddler to yoga and mindfulness in every-day situations.
Leonie says: “Children are born doing yoga. They can do downward dog with ease.Just start doing yoga with your children and they will join in. Try to bring a story into it so you talk about how you see a dog and then a monkey and then a tree. If you use imagination with children they will be there with you. If you tell them that you see a dinosaur, they’ll love it. “
