Front Cover
Lorenz Educational Press, Sep 1, 2010 - Health & Fitness - 56 pages
Whether it is to start the day off right, prepare to take an exam with inner calmness, sharpen focus and improve the attention span, or end the day on a positive note, Creative Yoga for Children offers step-by-step instruction for more than 60 poses, plus breakthrough breathing exercises that use fun, innovative imagery cues. It is a powerful tool when used in the classroom. It is low-stress and non-competitive. Watch the children stretch and balance in poses named for animals and shapes. Several minutes when they lay down in the Cocoon Pose for a rest, their wiggles are gone. They are calm, focused and better prepared to tackle the rest of their school day.
