Yoga Stories for Kids: A Path for Resilience and Growth can be used by therapists, teachers, and parents to help elementary school aged children safely express and explore such issues as loss, fear, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, bullying, friendships, and identity. The stories, which are integrated with movement, Yoga, and art experiences, offer various paths to overcome obstacles, develop coping skills, and build hope and resilience in a way that is non-threatening and relatable to children.
This book is divided into three main sections:
1) Yoga poses, which can be taught prior to the reading of the stories to familiarize the children with the movement;
2) Six stories for primary elementary age children (K through 2nd grade); and
3) Nine stories for intermediate elementary aged children (3rd through 5th grade).
At the end of each story, there are questions for further discussion, coloring pages for the primary elementary age group, and mandalas for the intermediate age group.
