Cute illustration from Good Night Yoga

Kids love yoga—and it’s great for them, so much that the President’s Council has added the practice to the fitness activities in the annual President’s Challenge. For parents and caregivers looking for a fun and effective new routine for bedtime, innovative educator Mariam Gates presents Good Night Yoga: A Pose by Pose Bedtime Story (on sale April 2015), a playful yet wholly practical book for preparing for sleep.

Good Night YogaFor kids in early to middle childhood, this beautifully illustrated, full-color book tells the story of the natural world as it closes down for the night, while teaching children a simple flow of yoga postures inspired by their favorite characters from nature. Moving from “Sun Breath” to “Cloud Gathering” to “Ladybug & Butterfly,” and more, readers learn techniques for self-soothing, relaxing the body and mind, focusing attention, and other skills that will support restful sleep and improve overall confidence and well-being.

The book also includes a guided relaxation segment—the “Cloud Journey Visualization”—the perfect accompaniment to any bedtime or relaxing time ritual. Good Night Yoga engages children in yoga in a creative and dynamic way and gives them their own yoga practice to do anytime, anywhere.
