A beautiful bedtime routine for yogis of any age! Starting with a gentle Om, Yawning Yoga’s simple instructions, gorgeous illustrations, and soothing poetry guide readers through a relaxing routine to end the day. Thoughtful poems depict a series of step-by-step yoga poses. Each of the poses is accompanied by its Sanskrit name, adding to the layers of learning. Written by a specialist in yoga for children, this lovely introduction to the elements of yoga practice—including stretching, posture, and breath work—will help children and their caring adults ready their bodies for a restful sleep.
