In brief: Yoga ; kids

Yoga can start kids early in improving balance, strength, and flexibility.
They can learn to calm their stress in a hurry-up world. Kids naturally love to move, and love to play. It's helpful for them to have a non-competitive way to move their bodies, especially for kids who are shy or who feel physically awkward. There are parent-child yoga classes which increase parent-child bonding too.
