Description


Science shows that a relaxed state of awareness is optimal for receptivity, learning, and problem solving. In Ogi Bogi, The Elephant Yogi: Stories About Yoga for Children, readers will find a collection of original stories that teach children how to attain this state of awareness and use it to deal with issues like self-confidence, social skills, emotions, peer pressure and academic success. This fun and illustrated book, featuring children of varied racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, is aimed at elementary school children and introduces yoga postures, breathing practices, and meditation. These techniques have been proven to reduce disruptive behavior and even improve test scores. Constructed to help children work independently, it doesn't require any special clothing, equipment or room set-ups! Teachers, parents and other adults will learn easy-to-use strategies to enhance the self-management skills of children in their care. Clear examples, in child-friendly language, help children make a direct connection between a real-life situation, a specific exercise and its effect. This helps them learn to manage emotions and reduce stress. Over the last 15 years, these techniques have been field-tested with over 4,000 children, and many of the stories in the book are inspired by these children themselves!
