About this title:

Synopsis: The Kids' Wellness Guide is the first of its kind to bring long recognized body-mind practices to preschool-K aged children by exercising their active, kinesthetic imaginations. Discover the genie within each child as their active imaginations physically interact with their body s muscles! This curriculum-guide book s sixteen kinesthetic Imagination WorkOuts help teachers and parents tap into each child s own creative imagination as a natural means for self-regulating movement, feelings, learning and behaviors. The author has translated the physiology of imaginative childhood play, sport psychology, bio-mimicry, and Eastern meditation practices into a playful language for educating lifetime learning and well-being skills for children four and older. The Kids Wellness WorkOuts scripts provide an playful, active, and positive environment of learning that helps children master the skills of relaxation, breathing, sensing, focusing, imaging, positive expression, movement, balance, connection, and patience. It is through the comfort of their natural ways of being that children experience enhanced creativity and well-being. Applications- class, home, play, PE, and conflict resolution, and is an ideal tool to offer those children unable to express their active imaginations due to physical muscle constrictions, the toxicity of excess stress buildup, and lack of movement.
