This book acquaints children with the practice of yoga. Using simple rhyme, it introduces young readers to many yoga asanas, their movements and breathing techniques, and helps connect them to nature.


  • A beautifully produced book about yoga for youngsters. Each asana is explained in detail using rhyme, while an additional line of explanatory text, aimed at parents, teachers and other adult readers, elaborates how the asana helps us.
  • Alankrita’s delightful illustrations are a joy to behold. Children are sure to love the book if only to stare at the colourful pictures.
  • There are a few factual glitches — for example, in Sarpasana, the pose itself has errors; there is a discrepancy in the text and image in Setubandhasana; and the Humming Bee pose is wrongly spelt as Brahmari, whereas it should be Bhramari.
  • The cover is a bit difficult to decipher unless you know the book is on yoga.


An engaging illustrated introduction to yoga for young children. Readers will find this book enticing even if they have no interest in the practice of yoga because of the beautiful illustrations.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

Anil Menon - Writer

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”


“Book review sites like Goodbooks are a wonderful resource for locating theme-based or issue-based children’s books to enrich the learning experience in the classroom and at home.”
