Presents more than 50 carefully selected poses paired with special activities that stimulate children's verbal, spatial, and artistic skills. Inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, the YogaKids program treats yoga as a medium for learning, using different 'elements" - among them anatomy, music, visual art, ecology, and language - designed to stimulate and teach. When children practice yoga in this way, they are also learning math, reading, science and nature and much more. Includes special yoga routines to cover a multitude of common situations (such as calming down, getting ready for a test, or even riding in a car), as well as advice on the benefits and techniques of yoga for children with autism, cerbral palsy, Down's syndrome, ADD, ADHD). An excellent yoga primer for children!
