Calm and awake, “I can do this!”

is all I need to say.

A deep breath in, a long breath out—

I am ready for the day!

This “wake up” story is so much more than a story. It’s a practice for kids and parents to greet the morning with joy and embark on their daily adventures with intention and confidence. Turn the page and reach up to the sky, press your feet into the earth, and get ready for a great day!

Yoga helps children learn how to focus, relax, and both self-monitor and self-soothe. Good Morning Yoga instills these four skills and more, enabling children to jumpstart the day with excitement and meet the adventures that come with mindfulness and perspective. Kid Power Yoga founder Mariam Gates weaves gentle exercises with a heartwarming narrative and wonderful illustrations to empower children to manage the energies that visit throughout the day. Includes an intention-setting visualization.

Good Morning Yoga is more that a yoga picture book. It also introduces children to some basic fundamentals of a beginning yoga practice. There are warm-up movements to begin the practice, simple descriptions of each pose, an illustration of the entire flow, complete with a visualization exercise at the end of the practice. The book can be incorporated into a children's yoga practice in two ways: either with descriptions of each pose, or as a simple word and movement flow. The bright illustrations are visual instructions and also speak to a child's imagination, encouraging the practice of creative visualization, an essential part of any mind/body practice.
