Review quote

"A gorgeous book that soothes my soul. The exquisite poetry and graceful illustrations are alluring." --Jodi Komitor, Founder, Next Generation Yoga "An exquisitely rendered, visually healing feast for the senses, offering children a context for daily practice, and reminding parents and caregivers of the simple beauty of sharing yoga with our families." --Elena Brower, Author of Art of Attention and Practice You "An eloquently guided journey and a trail guide for children into the body. This will be on the top of my gift list for the children and parents in my life." --Tiffany Cruikshank, Founder of Yoga Medicine "This sweet gorgeous book conveys the feeling of yoga just reading it. Peaceful, easy, optimistic. Just sharing it with your child, even if you read in stillness, can help convey a somatic experience of letting go of tension and creating space. Whether you look at it, read it, or do it - you will feel better." --Jillian Pransky, Yoga and Mindfulness Mastershow more

About Diana Mayo

Laurie Jordan took her first yoga class at the tender age of ten--and promptly got kicked out for laughing at the names of the poses. Who would have thought that all these years later, she would make a career out of teaching yoga? Laurie is now a social worker turned yoga teacher and children's book author. And while Laurie enjoys working with folks of all ages, she has a soft spot for kids, knowing that good habits start young. After teaching yoga to thousands of kids and training hundreds of instructors in the specialty of kids' yoga, Laurie decided to write Yawning Yoga to help families conquer bedtime jitters and soothe the restless child. Today, Laurie teaches yoga throughout New York and Connecticut. And she still giggles every time she says Down Dog. Diana Mayo is a successful, freelance illustrator working in Chelmsford, just outside London. She gained a Ba(Hons) at Kingston University, and has since illustrated many children's books as well as adult fiction, editorials, gallery shows and design projects. Diana paints with acrylics, and more recently collage is finding itself part of her art. She especially loves working with color and pattern, and is inspired by fairy tales, her children and the flora and fauna found in her garden and beyond. She lives in Chelmsford, UK.
