I love when parents share experiences of what their children retain from yoga classes. I think of this story every Halloween.
One year a mom said she anticipated her daughter might be upset by a store filled with Halloween displays. However, while some could consider a witch opening and closing her arms as menacing, this little girl did the same movement as a yoga pose while saying, "Look Mommy, that witch is saying 'I love you', like we do at class".
