Yoga as a Natural and Drug-free Way to Keep Kids Calm

This is the start of a 5 part series of videos recorded while representing momsTEAM at the Wanderlust Festival in Stratton, Vermont. My hope is to inspire you to experience yoga as a family. Our world is moving so fast these days. Parents are constantly running their children from game to game, friends' houses, extracurricular activities, and appointments. When we are moving so fast we aren't always aware of what is happening within our bodies. Taking time daily to slow down and go inward has many positive attributes for the mind, body and Spirit. Knowing what benefits yoga is bringing to the hundreds of thousands of adults worldwide, it only makes sense that we would want to share this gift with our children.

Looking for a great way to calm your children without having to resort to prescription drugs? Here's a video about how practicing yoga can help.

When the invitation came in from the Wanderlust Festival in Stratton, Vermont, I wanted to go, especially as I had spent time there visiting my father growing up and practice yoga as an adult. But it turned out that I couldn't find time in my busy schedule running MomsTEAM to get up there, so I offered the media credentials to Tracey Wright, a young chiropractor and yoga enthusiast I have known since she was a child.  Tracey had gone last year and wanted to start blogging on MomsTEAM, so she was only too happy to attend in my stead.

Here's what Tracey had to say about her experience:

Diagnosis and prevention of head injuries has come a long way, but actual treatment options in the medical model, besides medication for headache, rest and cautioning against a premature return to play, have lagged behind. Edward Feldman, D.C., RCST, offers a natural and non-invasive way to heal called "Functional Medicine" which includes craniosacral therapy (developed in osteopathy) and use of the Feldenkrais Method.
