Day 4 #Fitness Friday
Yoga can improve mental health in general and may help relieve symptoms of mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and schizophrenia.
Aside from its benefits for your mental health, it’s a great way to stretch and strengthen your muscles.
UAEX has developed a great resource called Yoga for Kids by Lisa Washburn, Health Specialist. The routines outlined in the curriculum and DVD provide simple exercises that can be performed in a variety of settings, including classrooms, camps, and at home. The program is designed with youth in mind but can also be practiced by adults. Download the fact sheet here.
