AUD $19.99

Yoga Animals introduces children to yoga and mindfulness through an engaging story and illustrated step-by-step yoga poses.

Filled with adorable artwork and simple, step-by-step guides, Yoga Animals is a charming introduction to yoga and mindfulness for children aged three and above. Guided by a narrative and written by a children's yoga expert, this book is an ideal first yoga book for young children. In the story, a sluggish bear wakes up from a deep sleep and needs a good stretch to get his energy back after a long nap. Readers then follow Bear as he goes about his day and learns some fun yoga poses along the way! Children are shown how to stretch, balance, reach and leap with Bear as he meets some forest friends who teach him how to boost his energy, stay calm and positive, and relax, using yoga.
