Yoga for kids is exploding worldwide these days. More and more, people are talking about the benefits of yoga for children (and parents too) which is wonderful considering the amount of stress our society is facing these days.

It’s World Vegetarian Day so we’re asking about the benefits of kids going veggie!

A friend recently rang Kalila all a fluster asking what we thought about vegetarian diets for young children?

It transpires that […]

Mummy super trainer Kerry Vaughan
