According to Helen Garabedian, author of Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Toddlers and Preschoolers (Da Capo Lifelong Books), yoga can help preschoolers increase attention span, relieve frustration, and improve body awareness. For moms, yoga can reduce anxiety and help them get more sleep -- and who couldn't use that? To get started with your preschooler, try the poses shown here.

Easy Pose

In preschool it's called "crisscross applesauce," and in yoga it's called "easy pose." Either way, it's about calming down and paying attention.

1. Get into a comfortable cross-legged position, hands on knees.

2. Breathe deeply through your nose, keeping your back straight.
