Please check out just a few reviews from Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children.

Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children by Sara J. Weis is a true gift to anyone looking to bring yoga and mindfulness into the lives of children. This book not only explains the benefits of yoga and mindfulness for kids but it provides simple and accessible ways to share these practices. The instructions are clear and the activities are engaging and thoughtful.

Sara shows how to implement lesson plans with ease and comfort and how to props and beautiful stories to keep kids interested and connected. After reading Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children I couldn’t wait until my next kid’s class to use the lessons and exercises in this book! It will energize any parent or teacher and make them feel ready to bring yoga and mindfulness to children and see the incredible benefits of these practices! I know I will turn to this book


time and time again! Thank you Sara and Go Go Yoga for Kids for all of the wonderful work you do and helping our children navigate this big big world!

As a children’s yoga teacher, author, and founder of World Yoga Power and Kids’ Yoga Day, I am always looking for fresh ideas and fun new ways to teach yoga to kids. Sara J. Weis’ newest book, Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children does just that! It is an excellent resource for not only children’s yoga teachers, but also for parents, teachers, counselors, and healthcare professionals.
It expands on her first book, Go Go Yoga Kids, by incorporating new lesson plans, yoga games, breathing exercises and more, in an easy to follow format. Children are faced with over-stimulation as they strive to keep up with the fast-paced demands of our society.  Go Go Yoga for Kids:Yoga Lessons for Children is a wonderful tool to help expose kids to the many health and wellness benefits of yoga in a fun and age appropriate manner.

Yoga is great for kids’ health, concentration, and self-confidence. But as Sara J. Weis reminds us in her newly expanded book Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children, it’s mostly about having fun. Whether it’s dragon breathing, downward dog tunnels, musical mats, or even invent-a-pose, Weis realizes that kids won’t stick with this important practice if adults don’t help them love it.

Parents who’ve never instructed their child (or a posse of neighborhood kids), or even yoga teachers who are new to classes of children, will appreciate the large section on lesson planning, which includes such creative sample themed lessons as a trip to the farm and an African safari. As a writer and reader, I also adore the section linking classic children’s books with developmental themes and the yoga poses and breathwork that reflect them. I will definitely be buying this book for all the parents and yoga teachers I know, and I highly recommend you do the same.

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.”)
Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children can be used as a complement to Go Go Yoga for Kids: A Complete Guide to Using Yoga with Kids or on its own if you have some experience and training in kids yoga.

Sara J. Weis has done it again with Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children. Brimming with detailed advice on everything from why yoga enhances children’s well-being to ways to lead kids in movement fun, the book serves as a comprehensive resource for anyone intent to enrich children’s lives.

In simple language and an easy-to-follow format, this installment of the Go Go Yoga for Kids series particularly schools readers on making yoga accessible and entertaining in and outside of the yoga studio, classroom or home. The chapters on games, props and children’s books allow readers’ minds to soar when it comes to sharing yoga with youngsters. Wherever you interact with children, Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children helps make your impact exceptional.
