Should I let my young children do Yoga?

Children under 16

One group, The American Yoga Association, believes that “Yoga exercises are not recommended for children under 16 because their bodies' nervous and glandular systems are still growing, and the effect of Yoga exercises on these systems may interfere with natural growth.”

Parents should be aware of this opinion and consider it when deciding whether or not to allow their children to practice Yoga.--Yogaguru
