Using Books to Teach Chakras to Children

This is for all you who want to teach chakras to children or share a message with your family members or as yoga teacher or counselor. Because to teach chakras is to enlighten your learners.   Of course, reading the books is fine, but better yet, DO the actions. When the teacher in the book  explains the red chakra, have your learners hold their hands on the root at the base of the spine and imagine the colors-or even just imagine the picture that is right there for you! Perfect! Easy!

You can even think about what qualities coincide with each chakra.
