Yoga Works

4:30 p.m., Thursday, Atlanta

In the Zen room at Decatur Yoga and Pilates, girls and boys in the 7- to 11-year-old YogaKids class lie on a cork floor, relaxing in Lemon Toes -- aka savasna, the corpse pose. An hour earlier, they had bounced in, hyped from their school day, for a class that blends yoga poses with such elements as anatomy, music, language, and math. "Yoga has a balancing effect for children," explains Cheryl Crawford, who runs the YogaKids program. "If you are sad, yoga can make you happy; if you are mad, it can make you feel better; if you are tired, it can make you feel energized," agrees Jack Besser, 9, one of Crawford's students. "And if you do a hard pose in yoga, it makes you feel like you can try other hard things, too."
