Anna Lutz and Elizabeth Davenport have a conversation with Brigitte Pollio, a yoga teacher who trains both kids and school teachers, about the ways in which yoga can be used to connect body, mind and spirit, which is beneficial for everyone, but especially children. 

They discuss:

  • The benefits of yoga for children.
  • The link between yoga, the nervous system and self-regulation.
  • How yoga can promote and preserve positive body image in kids.
  • The benefit of incorporating yoga into school classrooms, and the positive effects it has on teachers. 
  • Things classroom teachers need to be aware of before introducing yoga to their students.
  • Ways parents can use yoga, breathing practices, and meditation at home with kids.
