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.

Partner Yoga for Kids Class

What a blast it was to be back at Athleta for another fun kids yoga class. This time leading a Partner Yoga for Kids class. We warmed up our bodies with exercises to get our hearts pumping. Then got ready for our partner and group poses.

We got into out Partner Poses using our Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards.

The yoga cards were perfect as we worked on mastering the 4 challenge levels with the included partner poses.

We continued with some fun team building group yoga poses with our Down Dog Tunnel. The kids loved it and did great!

We closed class with a Stillness and Savasana and with a few deep cleansing breaths. If you are looking to try out some more partner poses, get our Kids Yoga Partner Pose lesson plan or see our tips on partner poses here.

Yoga and Art Therapy in the School

What a blessing it has been to lead kids yoga classes this summer with the Children and Family Urban Movement.  CFUM’s mission is to create a community that supports the potential of children, youth and families through educational success, healthy living, and community engagement.

Introducing the kids to yoga and mindfulness has filled my heart. They had so much joy in trying new things.

As a special treat, each child was able to personalize their very own donated yoga mat.
