Description

Introduce your children to Pilates with My First Book of Pilates and encourage them to get to know their bodies through flexibility, coordination, and play.
 

You are never too young for Pilates! Featuring colorful 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 series of simple and fun introductory exercises, guided by familiar movements and illustrations, encourages children to get to know their bodies through flexibility, coordination, and play. This charming book encourages both children and their parents to get up and move, promoting physical activity, learning, and togetherness. A dozen poses have been specially selected for their efficacy and approachability, and 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.
 
Imagine that:
  • You are a boat floating on water
  • Your leg is a pencil
  • You are a hedgehog
  • Your hands can saw through wood
  • You are a swan swimming on a lake
  • You are a turtle hiding in its shell
  • You are a frog swimming on its back
  • Your legs are a pair of scissors
  • You are on a bicycle
  • You are on a bridge with water flowing beneath you
  • You are a mermaid sitting in the sandm
  • You are a seal clapping its flippers together
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!
 
With endearing illustrations and mindful concepts, the ABC for Me series pairs each letter of the alphabet with words that promote big dreams and healthy living.
