Overview


Well before yoga became fashionable via Sting and Madonna, the beloved elephant king Babar and all the residents of Celesteville were finding peace and tranquillity through yoga. And now elephants everywhere can join them! Through easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, Babar's Yoga for Elephants presents 15 positions and stretches as well as helpful breathing exercises. The book also provides useful advice on what to do with your trunk while in position, a dilemma that human yoga books often ignore.

Written by Babar himself, the book explains how yoga was introduced to Celesteville and how he and Queen Celeste keep fit doing yoga on their many travels. Babar's Yoga for Elephants is sure to become a classic for elephants as well as their human friends.

Editorial Reviews

Like many other health and tranquility-minded elephants, King Babar practices yoga. In this pachyderm exercise book, this graceful monarch presents 15 positions and stretches that even trunkless humans can perform. A great way to relieve jungle wilderness stress.

i am a grown woman who very much enjoyed the adventures of babar when i was younger. this book has just tickled my fancy and i am ordering one for my yoga teacher and partner. it is well done, entertaining, extremely accurate (how do elephants get into those poses when i can't?) and a great treasure for someone into the practice of yoga.
