Now available in paperback by popular request! Practicing yoga helps children to discover the strength and flexibility of their own body and introduces the importance of balance between mind and body at an early age. Using cheerful illustrations, simple text and clear photographs, A Yoga Parade of Animals shows kids how to assume the shape of their favorite animals -- each of which corresponds to a basic yoga position. (Pretending to be a surfacing whale spraying water from its spout can actually strengthen back and leg muscles and help clear the lungs!) Parents can rest assured that their kids are developing good posture and a sense of inner well-being -- and kids can just have fun!
