Less medication, more meditation

Oh, back to school. Having mixed feelings?
For some parents and kids here in Aventura, the beginning of the school year represents a return to normal activities, sports, and homework. For others, going back to school this year has been particularly stressful!
How? Tremendous amounts of homework. A new school. Bullying. Addictions to electronics and social media. We’re starting to see a trend here in the office with kids who are stressed out and maybe even developing headaches and neck pain from texting.   Does this sound like one of your children?
Slumping over phones and tablets reading messages or playing games - dubbed 'iSlouching' - can cause the head to sit further forward and add pressure to a person's spine.
To help address the growing need for natural stress relief and increased physical activity in Aventura, Miami Sports Chiropractic & Yoga Center is launching our Kids Yoga program!
Because children encounter emotional, social, and physical challenges during the school year, a dedicated and kid-specific yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioral guidelines, and physical postures can be incredibly valuable for them.   This Washington Post article highlights the importance of physical movement in the role of ADHD.  Worth a read if you’re looking for drug-free answers.
Yoga is something children can practice anywhere! The breathing, concentration, poses, and the way kids learn to act or react to situations will lead to constant self-discovery and self-soothing in a very productive and drug-free way!  Let us help you with kids yoga in Aventura
