Mindful Little Yogis

Self-Regulation Tools to Empower Kids with Special Needs to Breathe and Relax

By Nicola Harvey; Illustrated by John Smisson
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon

Help children to master emotional self-regulation and improve wellbeing with these activities. Based on traditional yoga breath and mindfulness exercises, each activity is adaptable for a range of abilities and they are also ideal for working with children with autism and other special needs.

The book explains how being conscious of the breath is the key to unlocking calm during busy moments, and shows how this can be taught in a child-friendly way. Including activities such as lion breathing, bubble breathing, and sensory yoga games, children will love to learn self-regulatory techniques they can carry with them for life. Suitable for one-on-one and group work with children aged 4+.

Nicola Harvey is an experienced and qualified Special Needs Educator, Therapist, and Children's Yoga Mindfulness Practitioner. She has written articles for SEN Magazine, Twinkl Education Publishing and Ambitious About Autism.
