Meet Lex! Our YogaKid Student Spotlight! 

Why do you do yoga?
I have done yoga since 4th grade (so this is my 5th year), when Miss Kim came to my school. I loved all the different themes and activities we did. Then I found out I was good at yoga and I felt really happy in class and after class. 

What is your favorite pose?
My favorite pose is the pigeon pose.  It is a little difficult for some people so I think that is fun that I can do it.  I am still trying to perfect my pose though.

What is it about YogaKids at Ahimsa that you like?
I like yogakids at Ahimsa because I Iove being with Miss Kim. She is amazing and so good with kids.  It is a peaceful and quiet place usually, unless we are doing a crazy fun activity. It is a nice break from school and home. I love that we get to do art a lot because I love art.

What would you tell another kid who was thinking about doing yoga?
I would tell other kids who are thinking about doing yoga to definitely try it and try it for awhile. Every class is different so it is fun. I do the yoga poses at home too when I am feeling my muscles are sore or tight and need to stretch, or when my life is feeling stressed. I love yoga so much that I am going to start doing it more!  I also would love to be a yoga teacher when I get older.
