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.
---Teresa Anne Power, bestselling author of The ABCs of Yoga for Kids product line, children's yoga teacher, and founder of the nonprofit World Yoga Power and International Kids' Yoga Day.
Yoga is great for kids' health, concentration, and self-confidence. But as Sara J. Weis reminds us in her newly expanded and updated book Go Go Yoga for Kids, 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.
