Toddlers Take Timeout For Yoga


(WSTM) Toddlers in Jordan, New York are taking timeout for yoga.

Once a month yoga Instructor Colleen Smith is a special guest of the preschool classrooms in the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District. 

Students work on listening skills, following directions and motor skills in each session, all which can be used in and out of the classroom.

“They like anything they can make noses in, they like mouse and cat and dog,” Smith says.

Fun animal shaped rubber toys or ‘breathing buddies’ are placed on each student’s tummy, showing them how to belly breathe and take in a full breath.

“Those breathing techniques can help with anxiety and stressful situations, that’s the impact that I’m most concerned with and the one that I do see,” Smith explains.
