Yoga Initiation for toddlers in Montreal

Today Yoga is recognised all over the world, the sole reason being it does not only look into one's physical well being but also nurtures emotional, mental and spiritual connect. That is part of the reason why the children were introduced to Yoga, in one of our Kids & Company daycares in Montreal. They learned the Wide Mountain pose, a great way to get a full-body stretch for all the muscles in their body. In Yoga, as you inhale, you take in feelings of happiness, love and joy. As you exhale, you send that energy out your fingertips back into the world !
