Creative Yoga for Children: Using Imagery to Reinforce the Essential Principles of Movement
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.
