More and more, families and teachers from all over the world are introducing yoga to their children. From brain breaks in the classroom that incorporate chair yoga poses to YouTube videos that instruct children on how to practice yoga poses, yoga is becoming a part of life for kids and families everywhere.
Here at Kids Yoga Stories, it warms our hearts to know that yoga is spreading and that kids are regularly practicing yoga with their families, friends, and classmates.
Yoga books for toddlers are a wonderful way to engage children and to introduce basic yoga poses in a safe and fun way. Through stories, pictures, and their own imaginations, kids can increase movement and strength, improve flexibility, and discover new tools for calming down.
We have compiled our favorite yoga books for toddlers from the Kids Yoga Stories library to help you discover new and colorful ways to spark your children’s interest and get them moving.
