As a children's yoga bestselling author, teacher, and speaker, I am always looking for new creative ideas regarding yoga for kids. I found such a resource in Go Go Yoga Kids! This book is chalk full of great information to help yoga teachers, classroom teachers, youth leaders, counselors, parents, and any others learn how to implement yoga into the lives of children. I was especially intrigued by the way the author, Sara Weis, incorporated her favorite childhood games in Part 6 of the book and recreated them into yoga games. Very creative and fun! I highly recommend this book to those wishing to learn how to make yoga fun for kids, and how to empower them to be active as well as mindful and meditative at the same time! --Teresa Power, author of ABCs of Yoga for Kids and founder of the International Kids Yoga Day. Check out Sara Weis' Go Go Yoga Kids! Congratulations on being #1 in Lesson Planning for Educators! This is an incredible resource. Detailed yoga class designs and everything you need to create great yoga experiences for kids! --Mariam Gates, Bestselling author of Good Morning Yoga and Goodnight Yoga Go Go Yoga Kids is a fantastic resource. As a yoga teacher, I am often asked for yoga recommendations parents and teachers can share with their children. Sara's book is mindfully prepared and easy to follow. Her passion and experience with kids shine through. I think this would be a valuable resource for scout leaders for group activities and for anyone with a group of kids needing an activity on a rainy day (indoor recess!) with ready to go lesson plans and stick figures/photos to simply follow along & enjoy. --Sandi Hoover, BSN, RYT500, PRYT Owner, Roots Prenatal Yoga and Creator of Toddler Yoga with Sandi
About the Author
Kids, yoga, and teaching are truly Sara Weis' passions. When the idea for Go Go Yoga Kids: Empower Kids For Life Through Yoga came to Sara, she knew it was the perfect way to share her excitement and strong belief in the positive power of yoga with others. "Introducing kids to the lifelong benefits of yoga in fun, creative, and engaging ways is something I feel very passionate about," said Sara. "It is my hope that anyone who has kids or works with kids will be able to use Go Go Yoga Kids with confidence and success. The benefits kids receive from yoga are too important to miss. Now is the perfect time to start using yoga to empower kids for life!" Sara is a certified kid and adult yoga instructor who makes yoga with kids or adults part of her daily routine. She has invested countless hours creating and leading yoga games, lessons, and movement ideas with thousands of kids. Over the years she has learned what works, and just as importantly, what doesn't work with kids and yoga. "I feel strongly about my goal of having all of the ideas, strategies, and lessons in one place so this book can be a complete resource for others to use when introducing yoga to kids," she said. Sara holds a master's degree in Education and has over seventeen years of teaching experience in the public schools. She currently teaches creative writing classes for elementary and junior high aged students. Sara also leads kids yoga classes for a nationally known health and fitness club. When she is not teaching, writing, or practicing yoga, Sara enjoys spending time outdoors with her three yogi kids and her husband and resides in West Des Moines, Iowa.

This book is practical, visual and most importantly, it’s FUN!
The stick figure illustrations are not only awesome, but kids will totally love them too and I think they actually insight more of a (relatable) response in children than actual, realistic photos.
I especially loved Chapter 6: Yoga Games and Chapter 7: Partner Poses and Group Challenges. I think that often, people don’t understand how fun yoga can be, and this chapter takes it to a whole new level—even for adults! Kids need games and these chapters bring Yoga + Fun together in a way that is totally refreshing.
In short, Sara gives you the tools to communicate with kids about yoga in a way that they can and will understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to explore yoga with the kiddos in their lives.
As they get older I'm especially interested in teaching them mindfulness and improving their concentration - two attributes that will serve them well in life. This book contains what I'll need to guide them.
As a gift to teachers and friends who may not understand or know YOGA, Sara has done an amazing job of taking it from start (templates and planning) to finish including everything in between.
Every chapter is covered completely and throughly. It is obvious Sara has a deep love and gift of teaching as well as children.
One of many reasons this book is for everyone....
Under the chapter :
"Builds Positive Peer and Social Interactions"
"Everyone is unique and special in their own way, and we all come from different places and backgrounds. In yoga we talk about how poses look differently from person to person, child or adult. With yoga we celebrate and respect differences as we try new postures and poses. Kids enjoy working with one another in partner and group poses and achieving success together. "
Incredible book for us all :)
