Gathered here for the first time in one place, are the innovative exercises, songs, and most of all stories that make up Storytime Yoga for Children. Storytime Yoga seeks to enlighten young minds with the magic of yoga while recounting some of the world’s most delightful, instructive stories in a way that encourages both literacy and vibrant physical health. Designed for parents, teachers, and anyone interested in working with kids from K-5th grade, it is packed with inspired and yet practical information.
Here you’ll find classical Hatha yoga poses used as gestural illustrations of a series of specially rewritten “teaching stories,” about the importance of love, generosity, peace and friendship. Here you’ll find captivating tales ranging from The Rabbit in the Moon (from India), to The Magic Pear Tree (from China), and The Shipwrecked Sailor (from Egypt), along with dozens more. In addition, the book explores how to work on teaching children to “center” through meditation and breathing. The product of hundreds of hours of in-class work by renowned storyteller and Yoga teacher Sydney Solis, Story Time Yoga for Children is a worthy addition to the library of anyone interested in bringing the radiant health of yoga and storytelling to the youth of the world.
