Yawning Yoga helps me unwind,
thank my body, my spirit, my mind.

A diverse group of friends share poems and step-by-step child-friendly poses to guide little ones in transitioning from restless readers to yawning yogis.

Let’s start with a gentle Om. Flow from Mountain (Tadasana) to Hugs & Kisses (Uttanasana) to Dog Tired Down Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana). Get ready to rest, and fly through shining moonbeams. Rock to and fro, roll and stretch. Let our worries release, be at peace. Relax down from head to toe. Hands at our hearts to finish the day…

The light in me sees the light in you,
I bow my head and my light shines through.

Ages: 4 – 8

    “This sweet gorgeous book conveys the feeling of yoga just reading it. Peaceful, easy, optimistic. Just sharing it with your child, even if you read in stillness, can help convey a somatic experience of letting go of tension and creating space.
    Whether you look at it, read it, or do it – you will feel better.”
    – Jillian Pransky, Yoga and Mindfulness Master
