Introduce your children to Pilates and help them develop bodily awareness and key development of developing muscles and flexibility.
Featuring simple, colourful step-by-step guidance, My First Book of Pilates gives kids an introduction to the popular exercise program adults have enjoyed for so many years. A dozen poses have been specially selected for their efficacy and approachability. Each page compares one of the 12 poses to an example kids can understand, such as stretching like a swan, curling up like a hedgehog, or kicking like a frog.
By learning about Pilates, kids can gain physical benefits such as better posture and improved strength and flexibility. But they can also gain a better awareness of their body, as well as develop a more relaxed state of mind by learning about this mindful practice. My First Book of Pilates is the perfect introduction to a balanced body for young children!
