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.
Get the shortcut, done-for-you thematic resources you’ve been looking for, so you can spend more time teaching and practicing yoga rather than spending hours and days seeking out new yoga resources and tools.
Imagine receiving a collection of thematic kids yoga resources that land directly in your inbox each and every month.
1. Each month, delivered to your inbox on the 1st, we carefully and thoughtfully create and select (from KYS’s vast and ever-growing resource library) four distinct items based around a theme.
2. Each month, delivered to your inbox on the 15th, we share 3-4 additional 5-pose posters that will support that month's theme!
Q: 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 and additional posters 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.
Q: Can I pay for Kids Yoga Monthly monthly instead?

Q: 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. 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 Using your email account’s search feature is especially handy for finding older emails that have been archived.
Q: 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. Each month, you’ll receive a yoga challenge to deepen your own practice, no matter how much previous experience you have with yoga. Our yoga books naturally take children through the yoga poses as they read along and act out the stories. So no experience is necessary to join.
Q: 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.
