Calming the Kids: Choosing the Experiment
So my finial experiment came to me through several different influences. First was my boyfriends : daughter, a very spirited and rambunctious 6 year old who really didn’t like going to bed. Second was my children who started having aliments (my son was having migraines, and my daughter had gone through a bought of being sick and missing school). Third was my job. I am a massage therapist and recently I have had a flood of teenage athletes coming in with some pretty severe body conditions that are going to give them major issues as they get older if not addressed. Fourth was my own recent injury, that I am being told stemmed from my hyper flexibility and my constant participation in sports year round from a very young age. So we see a theme emerging. I need to focus on yoga for children. If I had known what I do now through my massage, yoga, and Ayurveda training, or even just had someone who could guide me in these directions when I was a child, I wouldn’t have the issues in my body and mind that I now do.
