Today in Mini Yogi’s Yogaclasses at Mini Miracles Childcare Center, we all said a rousing “Good Morning” inspired by the exciting and gorgeously illustrated “Good Morning Yoga” by Mariam Gates. This book is not only a beautiful yoga picture book with bright and captivating illustrations (by the super talented Sarah Jane Hinder) but it is also a well crafted yoga sequence that had all of us reaching to the sky, high on our toes and then on all fours, barking like a dog. It takes you from the silly and active to the quietly, still and contemplative! Each pose is accompanied by a sweet little rhyme teaching us to breath deeply, stretch long and clear our minds. By far, the favorite part of class for everyone was the double boat partner pose!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to bring a little yoga fun into childrens’ lives.
