An inspiring distillation of Lynea and Jim Gillen’s four decades of experience teaching kid’s yoga in school, counseling and clinical settings, with a diverse range of PreK-12 students, including those with ADD/ADHD, ASD, anxiety and other disorders.
Filled with photos, illustrations, lesson plans, and an extensive quick-reference bibliography, this detailed manual is an indispensable guide for introducing yoga in public school and therapeutic settings, as well as a great handbook for parents who would like to share yoga with their children.
