Bringing yoga and mindfulness to children
starts with YOU!

We often hear from the Kids Yoga Stories community members that they dont know HOW to get started with introducing yoga and mindfulness to children.

Guess what? 

It actually starts with YOU!

Would you have guessed that? That’s okay. Most people dive in and want to quickly bring yoga and mindfulness to children because they know how beneficial it can be for their learning, development, health, and wellness.

However, we have found that the fastest and easiest way to bring yoga and mindfulness to children is to have a solid practice of your own. Not only will you have a better sense of what works and a whole host of tools and strategies to draw upon but you will be calm, cool, and collected—essentially, a role model for your kids!

When you are self-regulated, you’re better able to teach, demonstrate, and provide tools to help others self-regulate. When you are calm and grounded, students see an example of what that looks like in the real world and can emulate.

When you are managing stress with ease and grace by using breathing exercises, mindfulness practices, or movement, children come to realize that these tools are available to them, as well. You don’t need to run off to an ashram or take a five-hundred-hour yoga teacher training to learn the basics of bringing yoga and mindfulness to your life.

Giselle Shardlow, founder of Kids Yoga Stories, will walk you through the four steps to get started:

Step One: How to get yourself calm and ready

Step Two: What yoga and mindfulness is (and is not) and why we practice

Step Three: How to practice yoga and mindfulness activities

Step Four: How to make yoga and mindfulness a daily habit

yoga and mindfulness 101

In this introductory course, you will:

  • Discover your own strategies, practices, and self-care rituals to help you self-regulate. This includes a variety of calming exercises that you can easily incorporate into your life daily—or at a moment’s notice in times of stress.
  • Explore what yoga and mindfulness are and what they are not! By having a solid understanding of what yoga and mindfulness really is—including the history and benefits of these practices—you will be able to better incorporate the exercises into your life, introduce them to children and families, and explain the powerful benefits to others.
  • Dive in and experience a variety of practices, including yoga postures, meditations, mindfulness activities, and breathing exercises so that you can discover the practices you most enjoy and can easily fit into your busy schedule.
  • Learn powerful daily activities and grounding practices to prepare yourself to confidently bring yoga and mindfulness to your students and children.
  • Build your very own calendar of yoga and mindfulness exercises that suits your desires, goals, lifestyle, and busy schedule.

This course includes:

  • Nineteen videos, including instructional videos, mindfulness and yoga videos, and tips and strategy videos.
  • A handy workbook for you to jot your ideas, explore your practices, take notes, and refer back to at a moment’s notice so you’re never without good ideas to keep you grounded.
  • A quick, easy-to-understand guide to the scientific benefits of yoga and mindfulness so that you can easily share these with parents, peers, teachers, and administrators especially if you’ve gotten push-back in the past.
  • Simple explanation (you can easily share with others) of what yoga and mindfulness are and what they are not so that you’re clear on what you’ll be teaching and sharing with children.
  • Several mindfulness and breathing exercises that you can easily incorporate into your life and daily practice to stay calm, focused, and stress-free, even if a regular meditation practice has eluded you in the past.
  • Simple yoga poses you can do at home that don’t require you to spend money on expensive props or ninety-minute classes. These poses are meant to easily fit into your life and enable you to rest, rejuvenate, or ground—whatever may be calling to you that day.

If you’ve been wanting to bring yoga and mindfulness to children and didn’t know where to start, then Yoga & Mindfulness 101 is for you!

Not only will you develop your very own self-care, self-compassionate, and self-regulation practice that will help you de-stress while promoting resilience, calm, and self-compassion—but you will be ready to introduce yoga and mindfulness practices to children with confidence and ease!

Yoga and problem solving in one single book

I really enjoyed reading the new yoga book from Giselle. It is not only well structured and easy to understand (I practice yoga with kids who are not native speaker of the English language) but also full of super yoga poses for kids. What I really liked in the book, that she went through a problem solving technic what the children can practice already in early age. At the end of the book there is a surprise and I am totally sure that you cannot guess which animal Poly will finally choose . Surprise, surprise!!!
I am waiting for the next book already.

Perfect pet

This is such a beautiful illustrated story with a wonderful story. Really love the layout and the yoga poses that are with the story. I would recommend to have this book in your collection not only for kids yoga teachers but parents, kindergartens, child care centres and schools. Great combined story with yoga for quiet time or anytime.

A helpful tool

I have been following Giselle for a while and I am always impressed and grateful for how she shares her knowledge. Her talents are a gift that makes me more confident in my teaching. This was a great purchase!
