Easy yoga

June 18th, 2021

Yoga is known for its positive effect on mood and physiology. It works for children, especially those needing healthy ways to acknowledge their emotions writes Kathy Beliveau in When I Feel: Easy Yoga for Big Feelings (Orca $19.95) for ages 3 to 5. Beliveau links yoga poses, like the tortoise pose, with rhythmic text to show how feelings such as anxiety can be managed: “When I feel anxious, / I tuck into my shell, / pretending I’m a tortoise, / silent, safe and well.” Based on Vancouver Island, Beliveau has studied yoga for children and yoga safety, and is a certified yoga instructor.
