Yoga with Young Children

There are many simple yoga activities that parents can facilitate with their children at home. One great resource that has helped to make yoga a fun experience in our house is Yoga Pretzels. Yoga Pretzels consists of colorful, laminated cards that depict playful yoga poses for young children. On the back of each card are pictures that clearly outline each step involved in getting in and out of every pose. The girls love trying the fun poses and feel a great sense of accomplishment each time they are successful.

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
