Yoga teddy bear

Meddy Teddy — a “100 percent yoga-poseable” bear — isn’t the first toy to encourage kids to practice yoga.

But Meddy, with his serene smile and peacefully closed eyes, may be the first to also encourage meditation, a mindfulness practice parents are finding surprisingly effective in dealing with behavior problems.

One Baltimore elementary school even replaced detention with meditation, which led to a dramatically reduced number of suspensions. Namaste!
