Kids Yoga Stories is founded on the principle of using alternative and enjoyable activities to inspire children to want to move and exercise. Yoga, an incredibly beneficial physical discipline and exercise, has countless benefits for kids like increased flexibility and strength, stress reduction, better sleep, and improved motor skills.
“I have always been passionate about working with children,” said Giselle Shardlow, author of Kids Yoga Stories. “I wanted to find a fun way to help children move past obstacles, and creating yoga stories designed for kids was the perfect way to do it.”
“Absolutely love this book. A great way to teach kids how to cope with fear and the little butterflies in their stomach when feeling nervous. I love how you can relate to any activity that children are involved in: soccer, gymnastics, etc.” — Melanie Q.
“This book is perfect in so many ways! I am a speech language pathologist and a yoga instructor. From an SLP’s perspective, I love how the book addresses the feeling of fear by explaining what fear feels like.” – Kathy N.
