The book will explore at least three developmental stages in the growth of children and adolescents, providing general guidelines on how to adapt yoga practices for children of different ages and stages.

The book will explore the all-consuming effects of chronic pain and how children at different ages can learn to cope with it. It will also cover mood regulation in general, explaining how to apply yoga techniques when the child/teen is experiencing primarily depressive or anxious symptomatology, or eating disorders.

Yoga practices for trauma will be covered by age group, since the experience of trauma is radically different from one age to the next.

Sensory integration and developmental disabilities will be addressed and illustrations will be used to assist the clinician in developing yoga practices that help child/teen integrate sensory experience. Yoga practices that involve kinesthetic, auditory and visual repetition help these kids stay connected to the world around them, and bring relief from the hallucinations.

A Practice Library will constitute a visual index of all asanas, pranayamas, and other yoga practices discussed throughout the book.
