Good Night Yoga: A Pose-by-Pose Bedtime Story by Mariam Gates
For kids in early to middle childhood-and the lucky people who have to get them to bed-Good Night Yoga is both a bedtime story and a series of simple poses for following the natural world as it comes to rest at day's end. Created by the founder of the celebrated Kid Power Yoga program.
The birds are flying back now
To their homes in the trees.
The ladybugs settle softly,
Between the butterflies and the bees . . .
This bedtime story is so much more than a story. it's a practice for kids and parents to end the day in a calming, mindful way. Turn the page and stretch like a tree, settle softly like a ladybug, float like a cloud, and you'll be dreaming soon.
The sun in the sky is going down.
And the clouds float by...
You'll be dreaming soon.
