We live in an age, which is, for an increasing number of people, of health consciousness. Yoga is often seen as the preserve of middle-aged, middle-class women, but this book is all about Yoga for children. Yoga promotes both physical and mental well-being and thus has no age barriers at either end. If, for example, a parent does Yoga, they may never have really thought about offering this option to their offspring, but there is actually no reason why they shouldn't. This book serves as a first introduction to the subject for both parents and teachers who wish to introduce kids to Yoga.
