I will use this book in my elementary Health classes to supplement my lessons on feelings( scared, worried). A great way to demonstrate how to calm down and overcome your ears.

I am both a children's yoga teacher and a mom …

I am both a children's yoga teacher and a mom of a young child. I love using stories in yoga classes as a way of sequencing classes for younger children. As a mom, I enjoyed reading this book with my daughter. It teaches about anxiety and overcoming fear, and there are a few places where you can get up and move around. Unfortunately, it was less useful in my yoga class because there were so few actual poses in the book. There are multiple pages that tell a great story but do not include associated poses or movements. Because I only have 30 minutes with my yoga class of about 14 5-8 year-olds, sitting and listening to a story was much less enjoyable for them than moving while listening to (and being) the story. If you have a longer class period and are open to having more reading time, then it could work.

Thank you for the privilege to review Katie's karate class. It was embraced by my 5 and 6 year olds and we talked about the reality of fear in our everyday lives. It opened-up the opportunity to discuss and look at other options to handle and deal with everyday fear. My class also related very well to the strong and grounding poses.

I love that this story, with beautifully done, colorful illustrations brings to light the feelings that children can have when approaching something new. I also like that it is such a universal fear that makes the text highly relatable. As a teacher of language learners, I feel that this text could help my students see that all children encounter fear about new things, such as they may have fear about being in a new place, learning a new language. I find it interesting that the yoga poses weren't specifically laid out as much as in the other, also beautifully done, Yoga Stories but I also like that teachers and children can feel the freedom to move with their thoughts and really focus on how the story feels as they make connections.

I found this to be a nice book for my elementary age students. It brought about wonderful conversation and they were eager to share their experiences. It was not so much of a physical yoga experience...which I do prefer in a yoga class.

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

As an Elementary School Counselor, I have found this resource to be both useful and beneficial for the students I work with. I work in a Kindergarten- Grade 5 Elementary School, and I have found this resource to be helpful in small group work, as well as individual 1:1 counseling situations.
Thank you for creating this useful tool for children!

Kind Regards,

Earth Day Yoga Card Bundle

I teach kids and youth yoga at schools and use the Kids Yoga Stories cards as visuals and for games. The Earth Day bundle was a great addition for our yoga sessions. The children engage and love the visual ideas, poses and add their own. We also use them to create a flow or start off conversations. Thanks Kids Yoga Stories!

Creative and innovative

I like Giselle yoga cards. They have so many different options to offer and my students enjoy all the themes. They enjoy being characters from the cards. The yoga poses are simple and come with explanatory descriptions.
