“Physical Exercise Turns Our Brains On”

“Physical exercise turns our brains on.”

The importance of exercise in supporting learning is one of the many reasons yoga and movement are an integral part of Yoga Preschool’s program. We learn through movement. Is it any wonder that children so deeply crave it? By supporting their need to physically run, play and move, we can allow kids to develop and grow in the manner that is just right for themselves without the need for excessive rules and regulations to “control” their “behavior.”

Learn more about this exercise-brain connection in John J. Ratey MD’s TEDx talk, “Run, Jump, Learn! How Exercise can Transform our Schools.”
