Lazy 8 Breath or Infinity Breath is one of my favorite shape breathing techniques. I find this shape extremely soothing. Added bonus is the cross lateral work that connects left and right hemispheres of the brain helping to calm and focus.
When teaching young children provide them a printout which they can trace with their finger as they learn how to practice Lazy 8 Breath.
I started the podcast as a way of adding interesting content on my then blog back in 2009. The first few episodes were a steep learning curve as I dove into a unfamiliar format and technology. My first live guest was Abby Wills of Shanti Generation. Since then I’ve had the privilege of interviewing over 100 leaders in the yoga and mindfulness community with a distinct bent toward kids yoga and school yoga programs.
A couple years ago I nearly gave up on this labor of love as I didn’t know if anyone was listening. Well they are….and in droves with over 200,000 listens. While attending the National Kids Yoga conference and through contact with the world wide youth yoga community I’ve come to learn that many, many kids yoga enthusiasts listen to these podcasts and love them. If you are one of our dear listeners please rate the podcast on iTunes.
I invite the world wide kids yoga community to celebrate this milestone. Join a number of guests of past episodes, who are now cherished friends and colleagues, chime in live on Jan 5th, 12:00 noon Eastern/9:00 am Pacific. You can listen in live (or after the event).

Shari Vilchez-Blatt loves kids! This is the first thing you notice when you walk into her yoga studio, Karma Kids Yoga in New York City, a studio which caters to young yogis.
Shari’s enthusiasm and fun, creative approach to life infuses everything from the colorful wall paintings and bright green floor to the kids birthday parties, special events (such as Downward Doll Yoga and Pajama Glow in the Dark Yoga) and award winning music CD “Come Play Yoga!”
Shari joins Donna Freeman to talk all things kids yoga and share the impact she’s seen in the lives of families who participate. We’ll also delve into how partner poses influence children, youth and families creating connections, building trust and improving balance along with adding laughter and excitement to yoga class.
