Rating
Following age-appropriate classroom themes, the book's forty detailed, one-hour lessons are designed to supplement any learning environment and are accessible to parents and teachers alike--no special training is required. In a recent study by California State University, Los Angeles, yoga was found to improve students' behavior, physical health, academic performance, and attitudes toward themselves. Research also shows that the benefits of yoga are particularly strong among children with special needs. This book demonstrates how yoga can become a fun daily practice inside or outside the school classroom. Enhanced with over 100 black and white photos, the book's themes, or lessons, are divided by age range (ages four to six, seven to nine, and ten to twelve) and explore topics based on the child's developmental level. For four- to six-year-olds there are twenty hour-long lessons on subjects ranging from colors and the holiday seasons to sounds and words. Ten hour-long lessons for seven- to nine-year-olds introduce such topics as the body, countries of the world, botany, zoology, and the universe. For ten- to twelve-year-olds, ten hour-long lessons cover the environment, geometry

Reviews

"This is the most thoughtful, thorough, and creative book I've seen on yoga for kids. Yoga is a great bridge to knowing the inner world of our thoughts and emotions. Adrienne Rawlinson does an amazing job of creatively introducing children to their physical and mental experiences, giving them numerous tools for taking care of their bodies and minds." --Megan Cowan, cofounder and executive director of programs at Mindful Schools "Creative Yoga for Children provides a comprehensive foundation in yoga for developing minds and bodies. This program is an essential resource for implementing a children's program in the classroom or studio." --Denise Pala, E-RYT, television host, creator, and coproducer of Your Yoga Practice "This is a wonderful book that will empower adults to help spread the benefits and joys of yoga to children and tweens. ... With books like this in the hands of loving and capable teachers, the coming generation will be a force to be reckoned with." --Yoga Teacher Magazine "Adrienne Rawlinson's book, Creative Yoga for Children, offers forty ready-to-teach lessons for children aged four to twelve. These lessons provide a balanced program by incorporating songs, literature, awareness of the natural world as well as many opportunities for cooperation and group sharing. It may be just the thing for teachers and homeschoolers who have wanted to introduce yoga but have been hesitant due to their unfamiliarity. One particularly admirable quality of the lessons is they all emphasize the process rather than aim to have children produce perfect stances. ... The activities and lessons may be modified as needed with effective results." --Green Teacher Magazine "[Creative Yoga for Children] is an intelligent and inspiring manual that would be of great benefit in every child's classroom and home. Layperson friendly, Rawlinson's lessons are easily understood and executed. Incorporating songs, literature, art, music, and games with the classical teachings of yoga, makes for a well-rounded and organic approach to learning. ... Creative Yoga for Children is an invaluable reference and resource for children and those who work with and/or care for them." --Creations Magazine "Having no formal yoga training, I find this program an indispensable tool in my class." --Carrie Ferguson, Montessori teacher "This book is a cornucopia of ideas and I love the variety of lesson plans given. I especially appreciate the objectives (intention) and educational elements sections. ... Even with my decade of experience teaching yoga I could not have written a more complete book." --Emily B. Canibano, yoga teacher and contributor at skyyogastudio.com "Creative Yoga for Children is a must for any teacher who wants to encourage physical education." --Midwest Book Review
