How long should yoga classes for kids last?

Don't Keep Kids Holding On

Even the most attentive children have short attention spans, and holding a pose for a count of five can seem like an eternity to them. When doing yoga poses for kids, keep them moving and flow through a range of different poses. Keep the classes short, too. Limit a session of yoga to about 15 to 20 minutes of flowing movements, starting with a few minutes of connecting with the breath and ending with a few minutes of relaxation.

Resist the urge to correct children's poses. Let them find the poses in their own ways.
