Press Reviews

  • Cathy Underwood, Yoga and Inclusive Movement Therapist, SYT Yoga Alliance Professionals UK

    Mindful Little Yogis is an excellent, user-friendly book full of fun, practical ideas for children and young adults with special needs. As a movement therapist I particularly enjoyed the yoga postures and the Lazy Eight Breathing technique. The STAR model that divides each chapter is a very clever idea, reminding readers to be mindful throughout. A must-have book for anyone supporting individuals or groups.

  • NASEN Connect
    The structure of Mindful Little Yogis makes it an effortless and adaptable book that can easily be picked up and put down ... The author is aware that each child is unique, which is reflected in the wide variety of practices, strategies and techniques illustrated throughout. Not only excellent for those working with all children and young people, this book is great for helping parents and carers to explore a variety of techniques to calm, regulate and soothe their child (and themselves).
