From author Susan Verde and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds, celebrate the creativity and self-expression of yoga in I Am Yoga, a board book companion to the New York Times bestsellers I Am Human and I Am Love!
“A delightful introduction to the subject as well as a wonderful read-aloud for movement and mindfulness.” —School Library Journal
An eagle soaring among the clouds or a star twinkling in the night sky . . . a camel in the desert or a boat sailing across the sea. Yoga has the power of transformation. Not only does it strengthen bodies and calm minds, but with a little imagination, it can show us that anything is possible.
The word “yoga” means union. Yoga is the connection between mind and body. A yoga practice is a way to handle stress, find calm in your mind and strength in your body, and be present. As they grow, children, like adults, encounter stress on many levels, from bad dreams to arguments with siblings to pressure from friends. Yoga can help young children strengthen their bodies, calm their minds, and become aware of the body-mind connection in a noncompetitive, playful way. It’s never too early to learn to be less stressed and more mindful.
I Am Yoga encourages children to explore the world of yoga and make room in their hearts for the world beyond it.
