A large number of studies bring forth several benefits of yoga for children.

In this book Renee Sherkness, educator and certified children's yoga instructor, shares her stories with teachers and parents.
The book will engage all children of ages 4 and above as they act out the story through yoga exercises.
The book is easy to use
It provides lots of easy to follow yet very specific instructions. Thereby even parents and teachers with no experience in yoga will effortlessly entice children into practice of yoga. The book also has kids’ friendly illustrations of yoga poses and captions stating each mudra’s benefit for them.
Children are drawn in by the stories, while the activities add to the fun. Each story can be shared simply on its own merit, but its combination with poses of yoga brings the story alive. The compound effect of two gets the child physically involved and feel a part of the story. Children learn breathing and stretching exercises. They also learn to be better tuned with their mind, body and spirit. Moral lessons of patience, kindness and more in the stories are imbibed by them most naturally.
