“Go Go Yoga for Kids: Yoga Lessons for Children” by Sara J. Weis
I was able to get an advanced copy of this kindle book and I have LOVED going thru it. First, I loved reading Sara’s personal story which lead her to teaching kids yoga and why she creates lesson plans and how she creates them. I personally have found childrens yoga to be very helpful as well in my home with my 2 kids.
Sara explains how she has spent hours to plan kids yoga lessons to incorporate every aspect she wants to include like a theme, breathing exercises, yoga poses, picture book, music, yoga games, team building skills, etc. As a mom and a teacher she understands the importance of the lessons being relevant, engaging, fun and flexible.
By creating this Yoga Lessons book for Children she has taken out the guesswork and hours of planning so that parents, teachers, instructors, counselors, or anyone else wanting to do yoga with children can have an easier time and be inspired to have fun doing Yoga with children.
Did you know there are several benefits for Children doing yoga?
• Increases Flexibility and Balance
• Improves Concentration and Focus
• Be More Present and Mindful
• Boosts Confidence
• Promotes Health and Wellness
I love how Sara breaks down specifically what a kids yoga class should include and then follows up with examples in the other chapters. For example, BREATHING exercises should be one of the segments every kids yoga class should have; so in chapter 4 Sara goes over different kinds of breath work. Which was so fascinating to read because I didn’t even know you could do that many breathing exercises!
Also included in this book are 20 ready-to-use yoga lessons along with a blank template to create your own lessons, several kids yoga games, yoga props to use and yoga mantras. I can’t wait to do the “Share the Love Yoga” and “Ninja Yoga” lesson plans with my son and his friends.
Towards the end of the book, Sarah also includes some quick 10-20 min yoga lesson ideas if you don’t have the time to plan a full 60 minute lesson, which I found very helpful as well.
I found this book VERY organized, easy to read, and very helpful! I can’t wait to get the paperback print for my personal fitness library and to further my own yoga with my children at home.
This truly is one of the best resources you will find to incorporate Kids Yoga into your home. As a fitness professional, fitness teacher, and mom-I highly recommend getting a copy of this book! Kids Yoga has been very beneficial in our home and I can’t wait to use this book more this year!
I received a copy of this ebook complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
