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!

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 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.
