A unique book with Dr. Seuss-like prose and vibrant illustrations, Yawning Yoga by Laurie Jordan uses yoga as a tool to help children establish a bedtime routine and helps everyone, including parents, get a good night's sleep.
"Yawning Yoga: A Goodnight Book for a Good Night's Sleep" by Laurie Jordan helps children establish a bedtime routine that incorporates yoga poses while also allowing parents to positively interact and bond with their kids before bedtime.
Holding yoga poses helps both kids and parents increase the quality of sleep and helps them to relax because it transfers focus from the stresses of the day to focus on yoga postures, relaxation techniques and breathing.
The Greenwich-based author, who is also the director of kids programming at Kaia Yoga in Greenwich and Westport, created "Yawning Yoga" to help destress and destimulate children. The book provides explanations of each technique using Dr. Seuss-like prose that are accompanied by vibrant illustrations.
An excerpt from Yawning Yoga:
Squeeze your finger, your nose,
your eyes, and your toes.
HUG everything tight, tight, tight!
Then let everything go
and feel everything flow
so your body feels light, light, light.
