My cousin who is living in San Francisco met me and few other family members and we discussed on various subjects related to children.
One of the subjects was about our children and how their lifestyle is creating anxiety and stress and shocking rate at which children commit suicide especially in USA.
She also observed that my children are active, joyful and they are healthy.
She knew, myself and my wife are into yoga and meditation for a long time, but she was not aware, my children were also into yoga and meditation.
She was surprised to see such pleasant atmosphere happening around the family and she wanted to know how yoga can bring better wellness to her children.
