It’s a huge understatement to say that the world has changed since I was a child. Digital distraction is everywhere, which can make quiet moments few and far between. And the minute kids enter high school it becomes a race to join more clubs and get better grades and do more community service, all in the hope of getting into a good college. None of these things are bad in and of themselves, but they create a pressure-packed environment that is so different from what I remember as a teen, when my biggest concern was if the right boy would ask me to the school dance.
This is why I love the IPlay Yoga kids program at Spotted Dog. With classes for younger (ages 4 – 8) and older kids (ages 9 – 13), all students gain a foundation of mindfulness and confidence to help them live inspiring empowered lives. The teachers make the experience fun and engaging, but the lessons learned will benefit them for their entire lives. And the kids classes are always held at the same time as the adult classes, so the whole family can learn and grow together.
If you have a kid between the ages of 4 and 13, or if you have a friend with kids in this age group, get them to “The Dog.” By reaching the kids we can truly change the world.
