Also, here's a press release about our new Yoga Mats for Kids:
YogaDirect’s New Kids Yoga Mats Attract People of All Ages
Hartford, CT, May 7, 2009 --- YogaDirect.com, the largest direct importer and manufacturer of quality yoga equipment in the United States, released their new line of Kids Yoga Mats for sale to both retail and wholesale consumers earlier this week. These new Yoga Mats are shorter in length than regular Yoga Mats, and have bright, fun designs printed on them; however, the real appeal of these mats is they encourage children to practice Yoga. Jason Nocera, the designer of these new kids’ mats states, “I created these fun mats in hopes adults would learn more about the benefits of practicing Yoga with their children.”
A recent report based on 1997-98 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), states that approximately 1.6 million of American elementary school-aged children have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). With a substantial amount of our youth affected by this disorder, it has become an increasing concern to find safe and effective alternative methods to help children feel like themselves again. Recently, parents have begun seeking Yoga and meditation programs for their children to serve as healthy activities they can practice to help them calm their overactive minds. Yoga has been shown to not only help treat children with ADHD and other related disorders, but it also increases a muscle flexibility and strength, helping children grow stronger physically.
By looking at the new line of Kids Yoga Mats at YogaDirect.com, one can see they were designed with children in mind. The mats are shortened to 60” long and 24” wide, and come in 3 different colors decorated with bright images of butterflies, turtles, and suns. The mats are perfect for organizations that provide Yoga classes for children in summer camps, as well as for schools and private studios with similar programs. These new mats not only provide an inviting way for children to feel more comfortable while practicing, but they also allow parents an easy way to introduce their children to the benefits of Yoga with a line of products they can call their own.
