Yoga starts at the age of 7 - +. Just as we don't go to school as adults, but as children. The growth and development of the child can be balanced and monitored with yoga practice on a regular basis. It is at the age of 7, research has shown, that the pineal gland starts to atrophy. To prolong and somewhat prevent the pineal gland from atrophying yoga practices are introduced to children. When the soft spot closes in the head, it is then that yoga practices are introduced to children, which is generally around the age of 7 or 8.
