Format: Paperback
There are more and more yoga books for children being produced now...which is great ( I have many of them). I recently purchased this book and must say that this book is special. It gives great ideas for story telling, meditations, breathing techniques, songs, asanas, warm ups and games, as well as including several stories you can also tell. I also liked that fact that it gives tips on how to teach yoga philisophies simply to children (love, peace, patience, respect, kindness, etc). This is a truly great book! Highly recommended if you want to teach yoga to children and stay true to the purpose of yoga!

Format: Paperback
Written for teachers, librarians and yoga instructors, author/yoga instructor Sydney Solis details how yoga is beneficial for young children and how incorporating this ancient spiritual practice into storytelling can help to achieve a deeper level of understanding. The book gives excellent concrete examples of how to deal with real situations that might arise with children including how to maintain control of the class and how to set rules. A class curriculum is outlined including folk tales, their theme, country of origin along with corresponding yoga poses for each character or action. A chapter with black and white photographs and detailed explanations of how to do the various poses is also included.

I was under the impression that this would be fun to do with my daughter, but it was more of a curriculum like thing for a group of kids in my opinion. A great book, but I would suggest it more for teaching a class than just to do with your child.

I usually give positive reviews, but this book was a disappointment in nearly every way. For starters, I expected more stories and suggestions for ways to incorporate yoga into the story. There were only a few stories and not many suggestions. I could probably do as well, if not better, simply picking a storybook and doing poses I select myself.

Secondly, I was disappointed in the stories that were in the book. Most, in my opinion, were not appropriate for children--especially small kids.

I ended up returning the book, because I knew I would use it very little if at all.

I am a preschool yoga teacher and I was very excited to start the new school year with stories from this book. Unfortunately, I found most of the stories inappropriate and somewhat disturbing for young children. I was able to incorporate a few tips into my class, but I only found one story appropriate. For example, there is one story where a rabbit plans throw himself on a fire as a sacrifice/gift for the dinner guest. In the end, there was a moral to the story, but most preschoolers would not get that far. They would get stuck on the rabbit sacrifice. Too GRIMM. Even as an adult, I was disturbed.

I purchased this book with the intention of reading it to first graders, as an accompaniment to yoga classes. It wasn't what I was expecting. In my opinion the stories were a little too "out there" for public school reading.

If you teach children's yoga or want to begin yoga with your children at home then this book is the one to buy. I have structured my class using the recommendations that Sydney Solis gives in the book with warmups and centerings, etc... I have also used all the stories in the book and have went on to use other stories and folk tales I personally enjoy incorporating yoga as I tell the story. My yoga students and my own children thoroughly enjoy each class I teach and I appreciate Storytime Yoga in helping me get started.
