The Benefits of Family Yoga

Between work, school, meals, soccer practice, laundry, dance class, birthday parties and an endless list of other activities, it's no wonder you're feeling like the family's a little disconnected. Each person is going in a different direction, and if one ball in the perfect juggle of life drops, all of the other balls might drop, too.

How to create time for family bonding in the midst of all this busy-ness? The key is finding an activity that each family member can enjoy, that also doesn't take up too much time in an already packed schedule. Seems impossible, right? Well, if there is a will, there is a way.

One solution has been tried and tested by many families, and has proven to be successful. It's yoga.

Yoga is beneficial for all ages, and finding one hour per week to take a class together as a family is not too challenging if you make an effort. Family yoga time at your local park or at home is also an option, if a formal class is too much of a commitment at first.

No matter how it works into your family's schedule, or how frequently you are able to do it, read on to learn about the many ways yoga can benefit your family.
