Yoga for Kids is a simple look at what yoga is and how it can help us come into balance, with wonderful illustrations and a glossary of some of the commonly used Sanskrit terms. AGES: 3 plus AUTHOR: I was based in Tanzania from 1996 - 1998 and began to practise yoga when expecting my son in 1996. On return to Europe in 1998 I began to study with the College of Ayurveda at the Kailash clinic in St John's wood. I then trained in yoga and Ayurveda in Coimbatore, India in 2002 at Arsha Yoga Vidya Peetam Trust and later qualified as a yoga teacher in 2006 with the British Wheel of Yoga. I have also worked intermittently in the world of children's books - so I'm delighted to have the opportunity to combine these two worlds in Yoga for Kids. ILLUSTRATOR: I paint professionally and have also worked as an illustrator for mainstream and scholastic children's books. I draw inspiration from the works of artists like Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí and Gustav Klimt, and illustrators like Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, Maurice Sendak and Quentin Blake.I did my graduate diploma in applied arts and later went on to get a master's degree in art history. I have also studied the traditional art of Rajasthani miniature painting. For my work in traditional and contemporary art, I have received merit awards at the state and national levels. I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the only professional body for individuals who write, illustrate and translate for children and young adults. I'm a big animation movie buff, and enjoy watching cartoons with my son. We share a love for books by Ronald Dahl, J.K. Rowling, Enid Blyton and Ruskin Bond. I am currently based in New Delhi, India.
