Reviews
"Yoga for Children is holistic: encouraging the skills of focus, mindful reflection, and mind/body awareness, inspiring confidence, self-regulation, and self-efficacy while teaching gratitude and optimism."

-- Sat Bir S. Khalsa, PhD , Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School; Yoga Researcher

"Yoga for Children has much to offer: succinct instruction on a variety of poses, songs, visualizations and games. Lisa Flynn's book will be a welcome addition to the reading library of every adult interested in sharing the joy of yoga with children. And, thanks to the book's friendly tone and colorful layout, it is sure to be a favorite on kids' bookshelves as well!"
