4-H Yoga is like yoga for adults, but sillier! Practicing yoga with kids should be different from yoga practice with adults in that, instead of quiet and calm, it should be noisy and fun. Yoga is a great way to engage kids in physical activity because it helps improve flexibility, balance, and strength all while being noncompetitive and inexpensive. Some studies have even suggested that practicing yoga can improve a child's attention, relationships, self-esteem, and listening skills. 4H Logo
