About the Book

As Yoga becomes more popular throughout the world, there is a pressing need for A Good Book on Yoga for children, which is both authoritative and appealing, informative and enjoyable.

The authors of this book fulfil this need admirably. They trace the Roots of Yoga in Mythology and legend, and include many stories and tales bringing out the quality of, and Inspiration for, the postures. They also stress the links of the postures to the natural world - trees, mountains, flowers, animals. They emphasize the universal moral and ethical values implicit in the practice of Yoga such as non-violence, truth, self-discipline, simplicity and contentment. Besides they highlight the geometrical forms and precision in the postures, so that Children can relate to these abstract concepts through what they have learnt in their body movements.

Each Yoga posture is explained through photographs, drawings, stories and detailed instructions with stick figures illustrating several stages in performing the pose. Important 'dos and don'ts' and the benefits of each pose are also given.

The highlight of the book is a detailed section meant for parents and teachers comprising specific guidance on keeping children practicing Yoga creatively, enjoyably and safely.
