Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is truly an invaluable handbook that provides detailed and thoughtful information for counselors and teachers who want to incorporate the enormous benefits of yoga into a standard curriculum. It is also a beautiful expression of how, just by shifting the way we are with children, we can affect their lives."  —Frances Douglass, PhD, school psychologist

"Beautifully illustrates how yoga techniques and philosophy can help children. The thoughtfully conceived exercises are accessible to teachers, counselors, and students alike."  —Julie Gudmestad, licensed physical therapist and columnist, Yoga Journal

"Quick, easy-to-use, and stimulates my own ideas for activities. The exercises described in the book are a wonderful way to honor children and set a positive tone in the classroom."  —Ilga Paul, occupational therapist

"Yoga Calm is an excellent program that complements the services we provide for children. It reinforces the self-control principles we teach in our clinic and empowers the children and their families."  —Dr. Jeff Sosne, director, The Children's Program, author, The ADHD Notebook and The Anger Notebook

"Yoga is an important and often unused tool in the quest to offer children and teens protection from the negative effects of stress. Yoga Calm for Children offers practical, easy-to-learn yoga exercises to help soothe and heal. You will find this book an important resource in your effort to bring calmness to a stressful world."  —Roger Klein, PsyD, licensed psychologist, coauthor, Ready, Set...R.E.L.A.X.

"Yoga Calm is an extremely practical, useful, and well-conceived approach for addressing the diverse needs of both students and staff. I can genuinely recommend this book to other school districts."  —Howard Fetz, PhD, school district superintendent

"Yoga Calm for Children is one practical resource! The book continually provides actual things you can do RIGHT NOW with children, to help them focus, be more grounded, feel confident in themselves, and relate with the world in a positive manner. Read even a little of this book, and you already have options and approaches to try, in whatever setting you are in."  —Jude Siegel, art teacher
