Adorable animal photos and lyrical text guide kids step-by-step through easy animal-inspired yoga poses in a cute and calming bedtime poem.
Roar like a lion! Arch like a kitten! Stretch like a cobra! Did you know that many yoga poses were inspired by animals? Let these creatures inspire your young ones to adopt a playful new bedtime practice, designed to help them stretch their bodies, unwind their minds, and relax into sleep. Simple step-by-step instructions explain the kid-friendly moves. Kids will get a kick out of the accompanying photos of animals that mimic each pose. And the sweet poem is sure to lull them into a dreamy state.
The foreword by Tara Stiles, founder of Strala Yoga, reminds us that we're never too young to start enjoying the health benefits of yoga and mindfulness. Animal Yoga is the perfect intro to this ancient practice - great for engaging (and quieting!) a class, reading aloud one-on-one, or helping restless little ones fall asleep at bedtime or naptime.
