YAWNING YOGA by Laurie Jordan

A beautiful bedtime routine for yogis of any age!

Starting with a gentle Om, Yawning Yoga's simple instructions, gorgeous illustrations, and soothing poetry guide readers through a relaxing routine to end the day.

Thoughtful poems depict a series of step-by-step yoga poses.

Each of the poses is accompanied by its Sanskrit name, adding to the layers of learning.

Written by a specialist in yoga for children, this lovely introduction to the elements of yoga practice―including stretching, posture, and breath work―will help children and their caring adults ready their bodies for a restful sleep.

"Mayo's lush, colorful illustrations are striking and lend a dreamlike quality to the work. With the recent push toward mindfulness in schools, this is a helpful tool to extend those soothing practices at home. Ideal for pre-nap or pre-bedtime relaxation." —School Library Journal

"The text is poetic and playful... the detailed illustrations combine acrylic paint, pencil, and found collaged textures, and are a delightful way to show happy children exploring the world through peaceful yoga techniques." — Booklist
