Overview

The innovative YogaKids® program offers more than just poses: It blends traditional yoga and its benefits with new theories of multiple learning styles in a comprehensive, imaginative, and playful approach to education.The best-selling YogaKids® video (a Parent's Choice award winner) has been helping kids—and their parents—discover the pleasures and benefits of yoga for more than seven years. With this book, Marsha Wenig's fun and child-friendly course is expanded and enriched for parents, teachers, and caregivers. YogaKids® presents more than 50 carefully selected poses, in clear, easy-to-follow, color photographs, paired with special activities that stimulate children's verbal, spatial, and artistic skills. The book includes special yoga routines to cover a multitude of common situations, such as calming down, getting ready for a test, or even riding in a car, as well as help for children with special needs. Parents learn the physical and emotional benefits of each pose; children discover that learning is fun, that exercise feels good, and that taking care of their bodies is easy.

YogaKids:Educating The Whole Child Through Yoga is by far the best yoga for children book I've seen! It is so accessible and has all of the important elements that one should be aware of in practicing yoga. It is beautiful and fun to look at and read! I am a Certified YogaKids Facilitator and use YogaKids in my OT work with children where I witness them making gains where sometimes with tradional therapy it would take months. All parents, teachers, and anyone that has a young child in their life should own this book! Prema Kristiansen CYKF
