    DescriptionThe hit yoga book from Baron Baptiste is now available in paperback! Yoga is not just about tying yourself up in knots, pretzel-style, it's about stretching your mind as well as your body, discovering who you really are, achieving your full potential - and having fun along the way! Especially created for parents and kids to share, but equally suitable for adults and older children to use alone, "My Daddy is a Pretzel" is for yogis of all ages, shapes and sizes. Featured on BBC's Blue Peter.
