We will look at how yoga therapy makes a difference with some of the biggest issues that children are dealing with today. We’ve all heard the statistics and the numbers are startling…ADD, DEPRESSION, STRESS/ANXIETY, ASHTMA, ALLERGIES, DIABETES, and OBESITY are reaching epidemic proportions.

In this session, we’ve selected two of the most prevalent issues: Digestion and ADHD, that children are dealing with today and will show how they can be addressed on a physical, mental and emotional level with Yoga Therapy.
