Yogito – Yoga For Children

New color edition

Original Title

Yogito - Un yoga pour l'enfant Guide pour les parents et les enseignants

A playful approach to yoga for children!

Nowadays, whether at school or in front of the computer, TV, or video games, children spend a lot of time sitting. In their daily lives, they also experience a significant amount of stress, caused by an often overloaded schedule that leaves them little time to play freely and develop their creativity. As far as wellbeing is concerned, the positive effects of yoga are no longer in doubt. Adapted to children's needs, this practice will help them find a balance between their internal and external worlds. What's more, yoga can help them become aware of their bodies and let go of tension, wake up their minds, stimulate their imagination, promote relaxation and improve their self-control.

Designed for ages 6 to 14, this book offers a playful approach to poses and breathing and relaxation exercises to help children discover the benefits of yoga in daily life and incorporate the practice easily into their routines, at home or at school.
