Based on the foundational teachings of yoga, the Sutras of Patanjali, A Child's Journey into Yoga is a lesson-filled story about the aspects of yoga beyond exercise. The story follows the life of a girl (and some of her friends) from elementary school into early adulthood. This book was designed to inspire young yogis to stay the course on their inward journey toward self-knowledge and inner peace.
This book is many things:a full-color, 23-chapter story book a coming-of-age story a teaching book with activities a reference for yoga principles a thought-provoking collection of situations for children and adults.
A Child's Journey into Yoga contains insightful and practical teachings, including:anxiety and anger management meditation, concentration and self-awareness karma, charity and selfless love confidence, patience and perseverance embracing rather than excluding different cultures healthy and mindful lifestyle choices simple explanations of key yoga concepts and Sanskrit terms
