A beautifully illustrated, simple story that makes the benefits of yoga accessible to all children Review by Pooky Knightsmith
This beautiful, fun book provides a completely accessible introduction to yoga for children of all abilities up to about age 11. The sharing of the 'Sun Sequence' is designed to help all children feel positive, confident and included regardless of their special or additional needs. There are specific, illustrated adaptations of the yoga sequence to enable children with inflexibility, autism, disability or injury to fully participate. The adaptations are simple and could be taught directly alongside each other.

The sea creatures within the book represent the different issues that children in your care may be facing - The Starfish Brothers' backs are stiff as planks, Eel is in a wheelchair and feels excluded, Crab finds it hard to play with others, and highly-competitive Octopus is on crutches after a pole-vaulting accident. Each is shown the sun sequence by Seashorse who explains the benefits and gently encourages them through the beautifully illustrated story:

"There is a lot of bending and we cannot bend with stiff backs" they said

"Just go as far as you can. Do your best...You'll soon get the hang of it."

With clear guidance for parents, teachers or yoga instructors, this is a simple introduction that can be used by anyone regardless of their previous yoga experience of lack thereof.
