Editorial Review

A simple, accessible introduction to yoga for children aged 6-12. These games help young people develop body awareness, physical strength and flexibility, and increase players' sense of themselves both physically and emotionally. There are 54 exercises and games, relaxation games, breathing games, yoga movements, trust games and cooperation games organized into 16 lessons based on themes like the Seasons, Rain, Snow and Animals. All the exercises and games are variations on traditional yoga exercises and have been adjusted for children. For instance, the Salutation to the Sun (Surya Namaskar) has become a dance in which movement and rest alternate. Each game contains an age guideline, an estimated time of play, and other specific suggestions including materials needed. These games do not require any props, and each game can be played by children and adults of all ages. Yoga Games for Children is written for anyone who works with children, and is designed to help teachers and group leaders provide a trustworthy, dynamic and supportive play environment.
