Yoga for Children Has Never Been So Fun!

Yoga is increasingly popular for building strength and developing flexibility in people of all ages. However, young children may lack the concentration or strength needed to perform adult yoga routines. In this introduction to yoga for children, designed for young bodies and short attention spans, the author has replaced traditional poses with creative games and imaginative exercises that little kids can enjoy.

Yoga exercises encourage and improve

Stretch, Wiggle, Snort and Jump Your Way Through a Fantasy Trip to the Zoo

Many yoga positions are based on stretches or movements that are characteristic of certain animals. By using an imaginary trip to the zoo, Helen Purperhart introduces kids to all these animals — and to yoga. Kids create their own zoo setting and then get to visit the lions’ enclosure or the ape cage, the insect house or the aviary. They are also encouraged to act like animals — to snort like zebras, imitate parrots and practice communicating without words like chimpanzees. The combination of imagination and exercise is as stimulating for the children’s minds as it is beneficial for their bodies.

Helpful tips, clear illustrations and an easy-to-follow format help make the book user-friendly. The exercises contain instructions that can be read word for word. An additional section provides detailed descriptions of the animals in the games, and children can also learn more about yoga philosophy through a series of animal fables. Perfect for teachers, parents, camp counselors or yoga instructors, this book is a great resource for those who work — and play — with kids.
