What a Weekend! An Inside Peek at the National Kids Yoga Conference

Go Go Yoga for Kids was thrilled to be a part of of the 4th annual National Kids Yoga Conference (NKYC) which is held in the Washington DC area each Fall. This year the conference was held in Alexandria, VA, which is a quick 15-minute metro ride or car ride from Reagan National Airport.

This conference is designed for adults to bring yoga and mindfulness to our next generation. This is done through sponsors, keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and vendors.

This year was a bit different for me for a couple of reasons compared to last year’s  NKYC conference. First I was a sponsor and vendor which allowed me to have a different experience and perspective.

 

I also traveled completely on my own from Des Moines, Iowa, by plane, train (metro), and automobile (Uber). This truly allowed me to have an appreciation for different opportunities to try new things.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to meet and connect with so many different people from all over the US, Canada, and beyond. It made my weekend to hear the positive comments from others who have used our resources with the Go Go Yoga for Kids Guide, the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards or had taken one of our Kids Yoga 101 online courses.

It was an incredible feeling to be able to put real faces with names and hear about how they were using it with children. Hearing their stories really made all of the time, effort, and energy all worthwhile.

Teresa Power, the brain and energy behind International Kids Yoga Day is just as amazing and kind in person.

I loved meeting with the founder of International Kids Yoga Day, Teresa Power. I have been a yoga ambassador with this incredible event for the past two years. She amazes me with how much she has done to introduce yoga to children all over the year. She has also been a big supporter of Go Go Yoga for Kids so it was wonderful to actually meet in person.

 

Susan Verde and I agreed that we are definitely fans of one another’s work.

Susan Verde, bestselling author of I am Yoga, was also there with her beautiful new book, I am Peace. She is the true example of bringing yoga and mindfulness to children in kid-friendly ways. Susan has also so kind to appreciate Go Go Yoga for Kids from our very beginning.

The people at NKYC are the real deal as they are kind, caring and inspiring. The breakout sessions are amazing, but it is truly about connecting with one another.

It made my heart happy to be surrounded by so many individuals that truly care about children and strive to give them the tools and techniques to be calm, mindful, and healthy leaders for our future.

National Kids Yoga Conference Coming Your Way

I am so excited to return to Washington DC in just a few weeks for the National Kids Yoga Conference.  Last year was my first time attending this event and I left connected,  inspired, and energized to continue introducing children to yoga.

Just a year ago,  Go Go Yoga for Kids: A Complete Guide to Using Yoga with Kids had just been released and I was nervous yet excited to share it with other fellow kids yoga teacher enthusiasts.

I will never forget how I tentatively pulled it out of my bag and shared it briefly during a relevant breakout session. It is definitely the introvert in me as well as probably my mid western roots, but I often feel uncomfortable talking about myself. I had worked hard on this book, yes, and it was everything that I would have wanted to know and have when I first started teaching yoga to children. I just didn’t want it to be about me.

A wise friend once reminded me, it is not about me, it is about sharing something with others that can truly help them. I do truly have others’ best interests in mind and absolutely believe this book and other resources can truly benefit and help others, adults and kids, enjoy the fun and benefits of yoga.

The kids yoga community is kind. I heard several times at the NKYC conference how there is enough room for everyone and everything. We are all working together to help spread the joy, fun, and benefits of yoga to children.

While I am thinking of kindness, one incredible person jumps to mind instantly, Kerry Wekelo of Zendoway. We met at the National Kids Yoga Conference last year and she has the biggest heart and giving spirit that comes completely naturally and just ebbs from her.

Zendoway is a sponsor for NKYC this year and has invited Go Go Yoga for Kids to be a part of it as well.

My plane ticket is bought, my books and kids yoga pose cards are ready to share, and I can’t wait to learn and connect with others.

 

How to Play the Yoga Dice Game

Kids Yoga at the Zoo

I  love introducing yoga to children and have been thrilled that Go Go Yoga for Kids has gotten to be a part of many fun family events as well as author events this past year.

I feel uncomfortable just sitting behind a table, and I would much rather interact with the children and introduce them to yoga through a variety of ways.

Often when Go Go Yoga for Kids does an event, I will teach a kids yoga class, or offer mini yoga sessions so the children can get an opportunity to  try yoga in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

This past weekend we had  an event at a zoo so I was ready with zoo animal yoga poses and our popular Off the Zoo Kids Yoga Lesson Plan.

One of our new favorite games to play is the Yoga Dice Game. For this game you need a giant dice. I found a fun inexpensive blow up one on Amazon.

  1. Select 6 different poses that you want the kids to work on from the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards.
  2. Use packing tape or clear tape to attach the poses to the dice.
  3. I also printed out labels for the poses. This step isn’t necessary as the pose cards already have the names of the poses on them.
  4. Each player takes a turn to roll the dice. Whatever pose comes up, the player does that pose.
  5. Continue rolling the dice until all of the poses are mastered.

For the Zoo Kids Yoga Event, I had animal stickers to give the children when they tried the pose. It is not necessary, however, as the kids just had fun rolling the giant dice.

I also love that you can continue changing the poses on the dice so the game continues to be fresh and fun. It also works great for all ages. Have fun playing the Yoga Dice Game!

Want over 100 more kids yoga games and activities? The bestselling Go Go Yoga Kids: A Complete Guide to Using Yoga With Kids has you covered with all you need to know for introducing yoga to children.

Go Go Yoga for Kids Turns 1!

One year ago on an a hot August afternoon, I clearly remember sitting in a coffee shop while waiting to pick up one of my kids from soccer practice.

Just the day before I had submitted Go Go Yoga for Kids: A Complete Guide to Using Yoga with Kids for publication on Amazon. For the first time in over a year I felt a sense of a loss. After months and months of being in the trenches with the time consuming writing and publishing process, my book would soon become available in “.”2-3 business days

With the weekend looming ahead I knew it would be mid next week until I saw my book truly available. At that moment I had nothing pressing to do. It was an odd feeling.

Killing a little time in that coffee shop that day, I typed in my book title into the Amazon search box. There before my eyes, I saw my book cover slowly  appear. Go Go Yoga for Kids was published and live!

The feeling of “what to do next” was quickly replaced with elation and then alarm.  I couldn’t wait to share this book that I had cultivated over for years.  I truly wanted to help and inspire others to use yoga with kids, but would anybody care?

You did. Thank you.  Go Go Yoga for Kids reached Best Seller status within a month and has maintained it for the past year. With almost 100 5 star reviews,  it humbles me that I have been able to help adults and children see the benefits and fun of yoga.

I couldn’t have done any of this without these 3 kids. They help with everything. They are my guinea pigs for all ideas, as well as labeling, boxing, shipping,  modeling, taking pictures, videos, proofing, listening, coming to events, and cheering me on. I couldn’t do it without them.

They even threw a surprise birthday party for Go Go Yoga for Kids. Complete with the presents, cake, and the puppy. Love them.

This book has led to an amazing year filled with learning and growth with The Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards, Kids Yoga Teacher Training,  and so much more. What is next? Your needs, ideas, and stories inspire me. What would you like to see?

Let me know here. Thank you for being a part of it.
