ABC's of Yoga for Kids Review & Giveaway!

I started trying to get my daughter into yoga about a year ago. I'm one of those people that would like to be good at yoga but I'm still a work in progress. That said I also know that yoga can be beneficial to kids in SO many ways! It helps them academically as well as physically. Honestly, I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a downside to yoga, especially yoga for kids. One of the first people that agreed to a review and giveaway when I started Sarah Simplifies was Teresa Anne Power of ABC's of Yoga for Kids. Teresa is a Yoga Instructor and Author of
the AWARD WINNING book, The ABCS of Yoga for Kids. Teresa sent me a copy of her book The ABCs of Yoga for Kids. This book is amazing!!! One of the problems I had when I first started buying yoga for kids videos for my daughter is that they videos I had didn't actually have a segment that just showed the different yoga positions. Since I'm by no means a yoga expert I couldn't really show my daughter the right positions so we just muddled our way through (Meditation is so much more my thing!). I would have given my eyeteeth when I first started introducing my daughter to yoga! Things would have been so much smoother! Then we can go into the fact that the illustrations (by Kathleen Rietz) are GORGEOUS!!! The book is literally an ABC book that shows a different position (or positions depending on the letter and available positions) for each letter. It was so nice to look at my daughter and say "lets be a frog" and show her a still picture!!! This book is going to be part of our library for a long, long time! Its also going to be my go to birthday gift for awhile!

Now, for the really fun part! Teresa Anne Power is giving one incredibly lucky Sarah Simplifies reader a copy of her ABC Yoga for Kids 24 x 36 in. Poster! In addition to that Sarah Simplifies readers are getting free shipping from Teresa's website HERE You just need to enter the code SIMPLIFY

I learned that besides a hardcover book, she also has a coloring book which would be lots of fun for kids too.

When you go to the website at the bottom, you can get two pages for coloring. A Dog Pose color page with little dog bones on the letter D, and a tree pose color page, with a little girl doing tree, in between two trees and the letter T in the background. Pretty cool!

Love to get the poster (as I already have the book!!)

I love this book! It is really easy for my 4 year old to follow. Wish I had bought the poster when I bought the book, but maybe I'll win it!

Otter pose really cool! Good for easing back pain!

I learned that one of her favorite songs to play during the Do Nothing Pose is "House at Pooh Corner" by Kenny Loggins.
