Giselle Shardlow, Founder and Children's Author
Hello, my name is Giselle Shardlow. I hold a Masters of International Education with eight years of experience teaching grades K-5 in Guatemala, Australia, Canada and United States.
I am also a certified yoga instructor and have led yoga classes here and there to young children since 2005, the year I started writing these stories. When I was asked to teach my first kids yoga class, I dove into research and was surprised at how few resources there were for a kids yoga instructor. So, I wrote my own.
I have always been passionate about working with children and throughout my world travels, I recognized a great need to address child illiteracy, obesity and stress.
My goal is to write stories that make reading fun – combined with movement, the stories thoroughly engage children as they laugh, express themselves, and stretch their imagination.
I hope that my books and other creative resources for kids are easy ways to introduce children everywhere to how fun reading and good health can be!
My Mission for Kids Yoga Stories is to bring education, health and happiness to young children everywhere.
