Mia's Mountain Hike
Act out what you see and do on a mountain hike!Join Mia and her aunt as they hike a mountain in Western Canada. Be a bald eagle, black bear, and bridge over a rushing river. Discover the forest, explore movement, and practice being mindful in nature. This forest yoga book includes a list of kids yoga poses and a parent-teacher guide. Ages 4+.
By far my favourite! Such beautiful illustrations for my toddler and I to enjoy. A nice flow of poses, which are perfect for calming down at the end of a day, or being active at the start (depending on the affect used while reading it).
This is a beautiful book and wonderful story. Integrating the yoga poses throughout the story is a unique and fun way of teaching yoga. I teach individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities and related conditions (Autism). Some of my students have physical disabilities as well but we make yoga work. This book is a valuable tool for teachers and parents as they integrate the story with movement.
This is a sweet book with beautiful pictures. It's always fun to incorporate a new yoga book in my classes. I love taking a moment to "take a breath" while we go on a mountain hike, exploring new poses.
As a father, as a kid’s yoga teacher, and as a hiking lover, this is a book that really touches my heart in many different ways. It’s a wonderful voyage through the forest that invites all the kids to explore nature and the outdoors through yoga poses. The text is quite simple and that´s very useful when you are reading stories to kids from 4 years old, but can be easily expanded and also adapted for older kids. I like to plan my lessons in time with the seasons and the holidays. We are just entering into spring so the book story is just perfect to encourage students to participate in all the activities done during this season, for example, hiking. It can be also used during fall. Finally, as I always write in my reviews, the parent-teacher guide is a wonderful tool if you are a parent and you want to introduce yoga to your children or, if you´re a kids yoga teacher, it can simply be a source or a reminder of how to teach yoga to children in a properly and funny way.
Another great book. I have been using the Grateful Giraffe in my classroom and the children love the illustrations. I love the rhythm of the stories and the poses on each page. Great resource.
