I love how accessible and practical this workbook is, even for people who don't know much about yoga. The clean layout and valuable content make it a great resource for clinicians, educators, and parents. There is a great deal of science suggesting that the way we move our bodies impacts our emotions. This workbook will help kids move their bodies to build emotional regulation.
