Yoga offers so many health benefits, from increased flexibility to muscle toning, and improved posture. I wasn't introduced to yoga until I was in my late thirties, and have benefited from it so much over the last few years. When my children were younger, we enjoyed going for walks together and riding bikes, but I wish I had realized the many benefits of yoga while they were still little. We would have really enjoyed doing it together. I am excited to learn of a new book titled I Want To Do Yoga, Too by Carole P. Roman that introduces children to yoga. Exercising with your kids can be so much fun and teaching children yoga is a great way to get them started on the path to good health.
The book tells the story of a young girl named Hallie who visits the yoga studio with her mother. Hallie isn't happy about being in the babysitting section and wants to do yoga with her mom. Hearing Hallie's ple, the gym babysitter/yoga instructor teaches Hallie and the other children four yoga positions. Before they know it, all the children have had a wonderful time learning the tree, snake, butterfly, and airplane poses. Yoga poses are inspired by so many things around us, making it even more fun and relateable for kids.
A great introduction to yoga, this book will teach children 4 simple poses that are good for children ages 2 – 6.
The author, Carol P, Roman, is a former teacher turned businesswoman, successfully running a family business with her husband that employs close to 500 people. Carol's favorite job is her role as mother and grandmother. She is also author of award winning children's book Captain No Beard.
Now that my kids are grown, I have the chance to show my grandchildren how fun yoga can be. I am excited to share the book I Want To Do Yoga, Too with them.
