A new family yoga book by Dr Kiki Morriss has just been published and I have already enjoyed practising all the simple moves shown by mums and children to loosen up my limbs.
The new book, Nurturing you Family with Yoga: An A-Z of yoga poses, meditations, breathing and games for the whole family, is full of practical advice and beautiful photographs.
Nurturing Your Family With Yoga is an essential guide to the practice of yoga for families and children, demonstrating how yoga can be a real part of everyday family life and bring happiness and harmony to the home.
Illustrated with beautiful, inspiring photographs of children and adults practising yoga together, and with clear, concise explanations, the book is packed with fun and practical suggestions for incorporating yoga into daily life, including:
The A-Z of Yoga – a wonderful, engaging game that introduces children to 26 classic yoga poses;
Breathing exercises to strengthen and balance the nervous system and to steady the mind;
Visualisations to reduce anxiety and build resilience;
Yoga in Bed sequence to help children settle down and sleep well.
With guided meditations, affirmations and reflections that will inspire and inform interesting and thoughtful discussions with children, as well as tips and tricks for adults to help you share yoga successfully, Nurturing Your Family With Yoga is all you need to help you foster health and wellbeing for your whole family.
