Little Yogi Adventures, are rhyming yoga stories centred around themes found in the Natural World.
The Jungle Story is our first adventure and The Deep Blue is the one we are currently on!
What you will find in amongst The Jungle:
I have found an enjoyable way to teach children yoga is through story and pictures; when children have the pictures they have independence in their movement, and when they have a story, they create flow between one movement to another – a beautiful sequence in which they are completely absorbed.
When you add rhyme to the mix, what you have is a story which rolls off the tongue and an opportunity to take your story anywhere…even into the land of nonsense if you like (as Spike Milligan will tell you). Children follow rhyme with an anticipation of what words might come next, so why not make it something that will make them giggle?! Something that will make them giggle in amongst a more profound message; the message being in the Jungle Story that our world is a beautiful place, one that deserves exploring, one that deserves our appreciation, care, and our awe.
Anita’s art expresses this beautifully, the illustrations alone tell a story all by themselves. Upon each reading of the book, the little details become more obvious and the love that went into creating them clearer; each illustration hand painted by Anita in watercolour.
Ultimately, what we would like to see is children introduced to yoga in a fun and inspiring way, to learn through their own journey of how good it can feel to be healthy, happy and relaxed; and to experience this for themselves, so that as they grow into bigger yogis they are aware that to find a little peace, happiness, and strength all they have to do is look inside themselves.
