Mindfulness and yoga expert (and parent) Jennifer Cohen Harper has created another unique resource to help children--and all ages--embrace their full potential.
The Yoga and Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck offers over 50 activities to support health, well-being, empowerment and an improved capacity to navigate the many stressors of life without becoming overwhelmed. Beautifully illustrated by children's yoga teacher, Karen Gilmour, coupled with easy-to-read instructions.
Divided into five elements, Connect, Breathe, Move, Focus and Relax, this card deck is a comprehensive yet accessible tool kit for children themselves, as well as for parents, teachers, clinicians and others interested in helping support self-awareness and increased personal power in young people.
Activities and practice sequences include:
Heart and Belly Breathing
Feeling my Strength
Grounding in the Present
Relaxing and Restoring
Engaging my Compassion
"The Yoga and Mindfulness Practices for Children Card Deck is a FABULOUS resource for children and their parents, teachers, coaches. Beautifully illustrated, the yoga and mindfulness practices offered are simple to do yet powerful in their impact. With clear instructions for each practice, and sensible suggestions for organizing the practices into lengthier programs, this teaching tool is a bona fide treasure."--Linda Graham, MFT, author of Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being
"Jennifer Cohen Harper has taken her expertise in teaching yoga and mindfulness to children and her years training teachers and created this incredibly easy to use resource for us all. These exercises work beautifully with children and the card deck gives you a way to create endless yoga classes and mindfulness experiences--right in the palm of your hands! I am thrilled that parents, yoga teachers and classroom teachers now have the ability to add yoga and mindfulness so easily into their daily routines."--Mariam Gates, author of Good Night Yoga: A Pose-by-Pose Bedtime Story
