This collection is another gem from Chissick. His structured and
inclusive approach to yoga for those with autism is clear, userfriendly
and most importantly, fun! There are so many ideas and
approaches here that practitioners and parents will find invaluable.
At a time when we are becoming increasingly aware of the lifelong
importance of well-being and mental health for all, teaching yoga
is a wonderful way to equip a vulnerable group of children with
skills that will support their well-being for a long time to come!’

Phillippa Johnson, Specialist Lead Educator of Maths and Primary Classroom Teacher, UK, Grantham on 16/10/2018
‘Amongst the expressive visuals and easy to follow yoga activities
I’ve come to expect with Michael’s books, you’ll find some real life
insights into engaging children across a broad range of sensory
needs. I am by no means a yoga practitioner, but by following the
game-led and goal-focused approach championed by Michael
I’m able to confidently deliver activities that engage everyone in
the class. It’s no secret that children are more likely to be receptive
to physical activity if it’s fun but Michael’s knowledge goes further
by really considering the differing sensory needs of the children
creating a balanced and nurturing environment. The structure
and repetition of the activities breeds consistency, giving me the
assurance of delivering a manageable, enjoyable, but above all
achievable yoga lesson for all.’
