Book Description
The innovative YogaKids(r) program offers more than just poses: It blends traditional yoga and its benefits with new theories of multiple learning styles in a comprehensive, imaginative, and playful approach to education.
The best-selling YogaKids(r) video (a Parent's Choice award winner) has been helping kids-and their parents-discover the pleasures and benefits of yoga for more than seven years. With this book, Marsha Wenig's fun and child-friendly course is expanded and enriched for parents, teachers, and caregivers.

YogaKids(r) presents more than 50 carefully selected poses, in clear, easy-to-follow, color photographs, paired with special activities that stimulate children's verbal, spatial, and artistic skills. The book includes special yoga routines to cover a multitude of common situations, such as calming down, getting ready for a test, or even riding in a car, as well as help for children with special needs. Parents learn the physical and emotional benefits of each pose; children discover that learning is fun, that exercise feels good, and that taking care of their bodies is easy.

About the Author
Marsha Wenig, R.Y.T., creator of YogaKids(r), is a certified yoga instructor and a "Yoga for the Special Child" graduate. As an expert in the field of yoga for children, she has written widely on the subject for Yoga Journal, Fitness, Parent Guide, and other publications. She is the cofounder and director, with her husband, Don Wenig, of YogaKids(r) International and Dancing Feet Yoga Center in Michigan City, Indiana.

Reader Review
Not much to do about yoga, July 28, 2003
Reviewer: sdsford2 from Lansing, MI USA
If you are looking for a book to introduce children to yoga asana and yoga theory, this one probably isn't the best choice. The poses are few, and are fairly simple; too simple for elementary children. The strength of the book lies in the group activities and games. The group lessons lean more toward team and trust -building, which would be great in a classroom, church group or camp. As a children's yoga teacher, I was disappointed in the actual yoga content, but I'll keep it as a reference in case I need a filler activity.

Book Description
Designed to involve every member of the family, the yoga program in this book focuses on those children who are ready for a challenging and fun group of movements that involve both mind and body. Children are guided, using pictures and words, into poses with siblings or friends, with parents, grandparents, or caring adults. Children are first encouraged to do a series of stretching postures that escalate into vigorous warm-ups to energize the body, focus the mind, and strengthen the spirit. Other exercises are designed to give children an experience of inner strength, allowing them to develop concentration and stimulate the creative abilities innate in every child. Parents are encouraged to play with their children rather than watch them play.


About the Author
Teressa Asencia has practiced yoga since 1969 and has taught yoga for 20 years. She has written and produced several yoga videos and three yoga television series. Her series Welcome to Hatha Yoga was shown daily on CBC-TV in Canada. Her Yoga for Stress series was shown on the Women's Network across Canada daily for two years. She lives in Montreal, Quebec.


Reader Review
Best Yoga Book, August 4, 2003
Reviewer: Kilkenny Walter-Tremblay from Philadelphia, PA
Playful Family Yoga: For Kids, Parents and Grandparents
by Teressa Asencia is a remarkable book that is as inspirational as it is engaging.

I am a professional yoga teacher and have yet to see a more accessible book appropriate for all levels and all ages. The text is clear and the pictures are helpful. The book reads smoothly as a cohesive unit or you can have fun reading various chapters depending upon your interest or mood. The author is clearly an expert in her field which is crucial especially in a field where so much is published without experience and expertise to back it.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the practice of yoga no matter what age or level of expertise. It reinspired my practice of over 23 years and yet would make a great gift for someone who has never come into contact with yoga before either.

Reader Review
A wonderful way to teach your child self-calming!, March 29, 2002
Reviewer: Liane Gentry Skye (see more about me at Amazon.com) from Myrtle Beach, SC USA
As the mother of two boys with autism, I am always on the lookout for programs that might help reduce hyperactivity and tics. Yoga For the Special Child has helped in that quest.

This book provides clear visuals as well as written directions on how to coax your child to engage in various postures and breathing exercises, first passively, and in later stages, actively.

I actually began the yoga with my son just as he was beginning to fall asleep. As the weeks have moved on, I have introduced some of the postures that require his active participation.

Very simply, he loves the entire process---and yes, it does leave him much more relaxed.

While I found myself raising my eyebrows at some of the claims of benefit enjoyed by severely disabled participants in the writer's yoga school, I do see where consistent use of yoga can provide a child with the means to self regulate hyperactivity and tics.

I do recommend the book in that light, and I am grateful to have found it just as I feared we would have to medicate for hyperactivity.

It's also a fun bonding experience. I finally have something I can do with my son for a change!

Reader Reviews
excellent, October 14, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from USA
This book is now available. It is a beautiful book with color photos throughout and new poses and games to play. Many poses were created by the author. Children ages 3-12 will enjoy learning new poses from this book. There is also information for teachers and parents.

Preschool perfection!, June 5, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from West Dummerston, VT United States
A beautifully illustrated book. Accurate and colorful. My class of preschoolers related to it wonderfully, using it as a guide for their own Yoga poses. They invented several and we took pictures to add to this stunning book. This Yoga work interested and calmed some of my more challenging students. Well worth the investment of money and time. Highly recommend.

Reader Review
My son was entranced!, January 2, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from Washington, DC United States
I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I first looked at this book. But as all too often happens, we adults fail to see the true joy in something simple. The pictures of a child doing yoga instantly entranced my son, and the hand drawn backgrounds lend a sense of playfulness. My son who is four has been mimicking my yoga poses since he was around 10 months old, but this is the first time he has seen someone his own size in these poses.

I found he lacked the patience to listen to the descriptions that accompany the pictures, but would talk about the pictures, ask questions, and willingly try the poses himself, often holding a pose for 30 or more seconds. Anyone with a 4-year-old knows that 30 seconds is an eternity. My 19-month-old daughter wasn't interested in the book but enjoyed copying her brother.

My son has been asking to practice with me more often lately, bringing his own mat when he sees me setting up for my practice. He asks for his favorite poses by name or by finding them in the book.

This book has also deepened by own yoga practice. My children have reminded me that yoga does not have to be so serious. It is okay to giggle about tipping over during tree pose or to stop for a quick hug after triangle pose. I had forgotten these simple things as I worried about getting my poses just right.

This book lacks this warning, but remember to let the child lead you. While I expect an hour or more of myself, I have found my son seems to lose interest after 15 or 20 minutes - but that is fine. Instead, I will continue to cherish the time he practices with me but I also get a little more time when he curls up and goes to sleep beside me on his mat while I finish my practice each night.

Reader Review
Nice Photos, clear descriptions, January 19, 2000
Reviewer: Yoga Teacher from Massachusetts
This children's Yoga book is a good reference. I teach Children's Yoga, and my students enjoy looking at the photos in the book after our class and picking out the poses we did. they love the fact that the poses are demonstrated by other children. Nice spiral binding makes it easy to flip the pages to show the kids what we are going to do next!
