The book explains how being conscious of the breath is the key to unlocking calm during busy moments, and shows how this can be taught in a child-friendly way. Including activities such as lion breathing, bubble breathing, and sensory yoga games, children will love to learn self-regulatory techniques they can carry with them for life. Suitable for one-on-one and group work with children aged 4+.

Reviews

'

Mindful Little Yogis is an excellent, user-friendly book full of fun, practical ideas for children and young adults with special needs. As a movement therapist I particularly enjoyed the yoga postures and the Lazy Eight Breathing technique. The STAR model that divides each chapter is a very clever idea, reminding readers to be mindful throughout.

A must-have book for anyone supporting individuals or groups.
