Parents need to understand the value of our ancient science towards well-being, which is yoga. Yoga if practiced right from the budding age helps in leading a healthy, long life physically, mentally and spiritually. This book focuses on all those aspects that would facilitate parents to encourage children to learn, practice and make yoga an integral part of their lifestyle. Yoga For Kids highlights the various yoga asanas and mudras along with appropriate illustrations to comprehend the theory properly. So go ahead and grasp the valuable information this book has to offer.

A Yoga and Mindfulness Program to Help Your Child Improve Attention and Emotional Balance

Wouldn’t it be great if your child could exercise, have fun, and build concentration skills all at the same time? In 2006, the Little Flower Yoga program was developed by teacher and certified yoga instructor Jennifer Cohen Harper, when her successful use of yoga in her kindergarten classroom led to requests by other students, teachers, and administrators for yoga programs of their own. Harper slowly began to teach more and more yoga classes, and eventually recruited other yoga teachers with education backgrounds to continue growing what had become a flourishing program. Little Flower Yoga for Kidsoffers this fun and unique program combining yoga and mindfulness in an easy-to-read format. Written specifically for parents and kids, the book aims at teaching children to pay attention, increase focus, and balance their emotions—all while building physical strength and flexibility. Based on a growing body of evidence that yoga and mindfulness practices can help children develop focus and concentration, the simple yoga exercises in this book can easily be integrated into their child’s daily routine, ultimately improving health, behavior, and even school achievement. The book details the five main components of the program: connect, breath, move, focus, and relax. Drawing on these components, Harper shares practical activities that parents can use with their children both on a daily basis and as applied to particularly challenging issues. And while this book is targeted to parents, teachers may also find it extremely useful in helping students achieve better attention and focus.
