Introducing yoga and mindfulness to kids may be only ONE aspect of your busy life.
You have other roles, responsibilities, and jobs that all compete for your attention.
Wouldn't it be great if you had one less thing to think about? One less thing that requires hours of planning, researching, and gathering every month.
That’s where Kids Yoga Monthly comes to the rescue.
Get the shortcut, done-for-you thematic resources you’ve been looking for, so you can spend more time teaching and practicing yoga and mindfulness rather than spending hours and days seeking out new resources and tools.
Imagine receiving a collection of thematic kids yoga resources that land directly in your inbox each and every month.
You'll receive a single email each month with everything you need so you don't have to spend countless hours figuring out class ideas and themes.
Our printable yoga cards, 5-pose sequence yoga posters, and digital versions of yoga books allow you to download instantly, print if you choose, and be on your way.

Kids Yoga Monthly is for busy teachers, school staff, pediatric therapists, yoga instructors, and parents who:
Enjoy educational, environmental, and global themes

Appreciate the power of storytelling to link learning to meaningful topics
Additionally want to enhance their own yoga practice
Want to regularly incorporate yoga into weekly lessons, circle time, transition, or brain breaks.
Kids Yoga Monthly isn’t a good fit if you’re:
Looking for a box of resources delivered to your front door. This is a digital-only product
Not comfortable with a computer or electronic devices, because you’ll need to download the products
Looking for videos. These are literacy-based products
Expecting children to practice yoga on their own. These products encourage grownup-child engagement

I know what it’s like to be a primary school teacher with limited time and loads of curriculum to teach in an engaging and effective manner.
I also know what it’s like to be a mom with a massive to-do list and commitments galore.
My daughter is highly sensitive and spirited. We depend on a yoga lifestyle that offers self-regulation tools for life. As I’ve done with my own daughter, I make teaching yoga to kids easy and fun. I’ve done the work so you don’t have to.
I’m thrilled to offer a monthly subscription that can help make your life easier, while creating a calm, connected, and confident environment in your classroom or at home.
Just the other day, a 3rd grade teacher stopped me in the hallway to tell me that her class was getting nervous about the upcoming state assessments. She said that they started doing the Take 5 Breath as a way to calm down! A breath that I instructed them how to do over our morning announcements during my Mindfulness Monday and in my classroom. She was amazed to see them engage it and was proud that they had this tool in their toolbox! – Amy K.
My favorite part of Kids Yoga Monthly is receiving monthly themes with the yoga cards. My students and I LOVE the yoga cards!!! The visuals bring the yoga to life and the themes are so engaging and fun. I think what makes the yoga cards so special is that you include 3 specific elements that the kids could connect with. You include the name of the pose, a sweet looking child doing the pose, and a picture in the background. These cards work for all ages as well because the younger kids love looking at the people and pictures on the cards while my older students take more interest learning the names of the poses. When I take kids yoga training the leaders of the trainings have never used visuals of the yoga poses. I’m a visual learner so for me having the cards is such an important and valuable component for when I teach.
I also appreciate how you share your personal experiences and talk about how yoga and mindfulness have impacted your family. We are so fortunate to have all this accessibility and people like you to share their creative and imaginative ideas with people. Thank you for all your creativity and hard work. I always look forward to every month to see what theme you have picked. I also really enjoyed the mindfulness activities. I myself have a hard time practicing mindfulness so having a guide is super necessary. - Cheryl

How is Kids Yoga Monthly different than Kids Yoga Stories blog and newsletter?
Kids Yoga Monthly is a paid subscription service where you’ll receive four thematic, digital yoga products on the 1st of each month, and a second supplementary email on the 15th of each month, chosen to help save you time. You also get access to a private community of paying subscribers, where you can find support, resources, and more.
Our weekly Kids Yoga Stories newsletter is a free service with updates about what’s going on at Kids Yoga Stories. You’ll still receive the newsletter if you’re signed up for that too.

What ages are the yoga resources suitable for?
The yoga books and yoga cards in our Kids Yoga Monthly program target children ages 2-8 years old. However, our yoga resources can be adapted for various ages and developmental needs. Our yoga products are designed to act as springboards to other learning experiences suitable for any age.
How are the products delivered? Will I be receiving anything in the mail?
This is a digital-only program, so you won’t be receiving anything in the mail. You will receive an email on the 1st of the month with at least 4 digital resources to download, and on the 15th of the month with supplemental yoga posters.
Do I need to print these products off?
It’s totally up to you whether you print these yoga products or simply view them from a device/computer.
For the Yoga Cards:
If you are going to print the yoga cards, the printing instructions can be found here: https://www.kidsyogastories.com/printing-instructions/
You don't need to have thick card stock to print these off; you can easily use standard paper.
To get multiple cards per page, go to your Printer Settings:
- Click on “Pages per sheet” and change to “2” by “2” to print four cards per page.
Or you can take them to a local printer to get them printed 4 to a page.
Will I have to log in access to the resources?
You will need to create an account and log in to update your profile and payment details as necessary.
However to access the thematic yoga content, you do not need to log in. The content comes directly to your email account. The content links in the emails do not expire. So as long as you have not deleted past emails, you will always have access to past content. Using your email account’s search feature is especially handy for finding older emails that have been archived.
What level of yoga experience do I have to have to sign up?
The Kids Yoga Monthly is for beginners to advanced practitioners of yoga. Our yoga books naturally take children through the yoga poses as they read along and act out the stories. Our yoga cards have detailed instructions and teaching tips so you'll be able to guide your children through the poses with confidence. So no experience is necessary to join.
Additionally each month, you’ll receive a yoga challenge to deepen your own practice if interested, no matter how much previous experience you have with yoga.
What are some sample yoga themes?
We incorporate educational, environmental, and global themes into our yoga products. Sample monthly themes are feelings, jungle, fall, garden, and love.
Are there any yoga videos included?
No, our Kids Yoga Monthly products are literacy-based, and we do not regularly create videos for children at this time. However, we’ll be including some audiobook videos of our yoga books to include in your independent-reading corners. A sample audiobook of Rachel’s Day in the Garden is here.
