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.

How to Use Yoga in the School Classroom

The wonderful preschool age is one of my favorites stages for kids. This age group is imaginative, creative, and always up for trying something new. When I was asked to speak and exhibit at the Iowa Early Childhood Conference about Using Yoga in the Preschool Classroom, of course I had to say yes. I have so much to share about how to use yoga with kids at home or school.

These preschool early childhood teachers and directors were ready to learn about how to incorporate yoga into their classroom with yoga poses, games, breathing exercises, lesson plans, and much more.

I love teaching how ordinary props and materials can be used to engage children and get them excited about yoga.

See our recommended kids yoga resources or enroll in our online course Kids Yoga 101: How to Teach Yoga to Kids for hundreds of more ideas on using yoga with kids.

You can also learn more here.

The benefits of using yoga with kids is unbeatable. The good news is, that they are the same benefits for adults. We rocked the Top 9 Yoga Poses for Kids. These poses are perfect for these young and growing bodies.

Section 4 – Yoga Poses for Kids

How to Teach Age Appropriate Yoga Poses

Now we’re getting to the yoga poses. After you utilize your breath work and get your body centered and focused you’re ready to work on some yoga poses. I’m going to show you some fun ways to engage students with poses. Kids love to learn new yoga poses.

Yoga poses are also a great way to differentiate and accommodate for the varied needs and abilities of the kids you’re working with. I like to choose 3 to 5 yoga poses and group them together with a common theme so kids will remember them.

As you introduce each pose ask children what parts of their body they feel working. In your course resources part in part three I have an illustrated kids yoga pose guide. It’s got 45 yoga poses that you can see if you’re not familiar with the yoga poses yourself.

Join our online course and get your illustrated yoga pose guide.

I also love using, the Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards. These are a deck of 30 poses. They’re bright and colorful. They include partner poses too that the kids can use and see how the poses are made.

I also love props to introduce yoga poses. The How to Teach Yoga to Kids online course shows favorite yoga props which help introduce the yoga poses with and create anticipation.

Kids love themes  while practicing yoga. In the course, I will show you some themed yoga poses that you would do if you were learning about the ocean, jungle or the zoo. It is fun to see how the poses fit together with the theme which helps the kids better remember and practice the poses.

Included in our How to Teach Yoga to Kids course we’ve got four kids yoga lesson plans that are all themed with yoga poses, the breath work and everything that you need to teach yoga to kids.
