ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Yoga isn`t just for grown-ups anymore! Researchers say children as young as three can benefit in all areas of development from yoga sessions. These benefits extend beyond just the expected physical improvements.

Jackie Weaver with the Southside Early Childhood Center joined us on the 9a.m. with more about their yoga program for kids.

Studies show social and emotional development has been observed to show improvement, as well. Experts say practicing yoga can have a major impact on the child`s overall well-being and academic performance, one that extends well beyond the walls of their preschool.
