“Yoga offers so many benefits to mind, body, and soul that it’s wonderful to start kids at a young age. The best way to do that is to make it fun – and this book certainly does that. With its beautiful illustrations and instructive vignettes, it makes learning yoga like play. I love it!”
I was inspired to write The ABCs of Yoga for Kids series of books and products because I saw the need for teaching yoga to young children in a fun way that appealed to their imagination and sense of playfulness. I believe that kids should be encouraged to embrace yoga at a young age because during these formative years they are very impressionable and open to new ideas and concepts. Yoga is a natural and healthy way for kids to exercise, relax focus, and strengthen their minds and bodies. While teaching yoga to preschool age children, I came up with the idea for a yoga dictionary of poses to teach kids both the alphabet and simple yoga poses. This basic idea evolved into my bestselling and award-winning product line, The ABCs of Yoga for Kids. At the time I wrote the original ABCs of Yoga for Kids book, there were no other illustrated yoga books in the marketplace, and I was looking to create a book that had kid-friendly illustrations and easy to read instructions for teachers to use to introduce yoga to young children.
