Review: My Daddy is a Pretzel

184148151301_ss500_sclzzzzzzz_Kids are super-bendy so yoga should be right up their street. It isn't the most accessible of activities, though... right?

My Daddy is a Pretzel is a light-hearted look at yoga from Barefoot Books, which may be just the way to introduce yoga to the smaller members of your family.

You can also buy a bendable 'Mr Pretzel' figure (who, let's face it, will be better at demonstrating the positions than most of us) and a box of Yoga Pretzels - 50 cards with quick activities, games and positions.

The book links familiar concepts to yoga postions, using fabulous illustrations to show exactly how to do each one. It is a colourful, charming book that introduces yoga to children (and bah humbug adults) beautifully.

The Yoga Pretzels box takes the idea further, with loads of ideas like Elephant Breath and 'Yogi Says'. I particularly like 'Special Place', which my six year old can use when she is feeling anxious.

My Daddy is a Pretzel (hardback) is £10.99, Mr Pretzel is currently £3.99 on special offer, while the box of Yoga Pretzels will set you back £9.99.
