Yoga is a holistic tool
As a therapist, you want to do your very best to support each and every child you work with.
Perhaps you've considered yoga before, but are worried you don't have the time for a long certification program.
Maybe you've ordered a book or some kid's yoga cards but want something that goes a bit deeper.
And it means rooting for their success while teaching them how to bounce back from failure.
