Can you touch your toes? Or balance on one leg? Learn to calm your body and put your mind at ease alongside Flo the cat and Mack the monkey as they show you the different yoga poses. Known as asanas, these postures are fun to do on your own, at school or with family, and will help your body feel better and relax your mind! Yoga is a fun practice that offers an abundance of physical and mental benefits to all ages. Children especially find it useful to learn basic poses, which will help them through times of worry, anxiety, chaos and technology overload. With its roots in Ashtanga yoga practice, this guide contains bright, cheerful illustrations accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions for a variety of yoga poses. Designed for children aged 4+, these activities can be used at home or in the classroom, and will especially benefit children with low self-esteem, anxiety and ADHD.
