Yoga– how to inculcate this habit in your kids.

Yoga – since it’s International Yoga Day today I thought about writing my blog on the same, and how to inculcate this habit in your kids. And how yoga can help your kid connecting more with you. Though the journey and benefits of yoga have been known to everyone, but I won’t talk about that. I want to make sure that my kid understands the importance of yoga.

How Yoga Helps You To Reduce Your Tummy
