Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children is a Recommended Book

Thank you, Mindful Teachers, for your honest book review of Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children. Read an excerpt of their review below.


Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children (recommended book)

 Yoga Lessons for Children Review
 Sara Weis is a mother and elementary school teacher, as well as an experienced kids yoga instructor and teacher trainer. So she has a lot of useful suggestions for how to structure and pace a class while keeping kids safe and engaged.

But her biggest strength is as the creator of fun yoga-based activities. Her new book, Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children has dozens of games and activities: Yoga Bingo! Princesses and pirates! Not to mention the four seasons, birthdays, the Olympics, and trips to the farm and circus. (Although I suspect one of the most popular themes might turn out to be the “Quick-and-Easy No-Time-to-Plan Kids Yoga Lesson.”)

Other features of the book include:

  • a variety of breathing practices;
  • the best yoga poses for children;
  • three different versions of a template for planning your own lessons;
  • a dozen lessons based on read-aloud books, including  I Am Yoga and I Am Peace by Susan Verde; and
  • an illustrated Pose Glossary (which would also be useful for d/Deaf-friendly teaching)
Yoga Lessons for Kids can be used as a complement to Go Go Yoga: A Complete Guide to Yoga with Kids, or on its own if you already have some training and experience in kids yoga.
Ms. Weis has also created a set of 4×6″ Yoga Challenge Pose Cards that can be used on their own or in conjunction with the books.

The Go Go Yoga for Kids Yoga Challenge Pose Cards are an excellent product for parents, teachers, and kids yoga instructors alike! The illustrations are bright and colorful, and the cards can be used in so many different ways. My kids just love practicing the poses, and we can’t wait to try the suggested games. These cards are a great companion to Sara’s book but can also be used on their own. Highly recommend!!cards with bag

–Erin Leach

These cards are awesome! Simple, kid friendly pictures and an inspiring statement to go with each card. I used these in my Kindergarten classroom and was able to quickly and easily teach a handful of poses. There is a card with suggested ways to use the cards and suggestions for games to play with them, too. Will purchase more sets of these to use as gifts and give to fellow educators and parents.

Opening Minds Early Childhood Conference and Expo

I was honored to speak at the Opening Minds Conference and Expo in Chicago.  It is one of the biggest early childhood events of the year and I was so excited to be a part of it. I presented on How to Easily Incorporate Yoga in Your Preschool Classroom with Poses, Games, and Mindfulness Within Your Existing Curriculum.

I may have slightly overpacked, but I had so many props, resources, and ideas that I couldn’t wait to share with fellow educators, counselors, parents, child care providers, and health care professionals the importance of introducing yoga to young children.
