"Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths."
My good friend Mariam Gates is going to be at Prana Power Yoga Newton on Tuesday, March 31st at 2pm for a Book Signing + Family Yoga Event. Come join us!
"I wrote Good Night Yoga: A Pose by Pose Bedtime Story, because after years of teaching children’s yoga, I wanted a way for my students to (literally) take it home. This book became a way to hand children the tools to create their own practice and for parents, caregivers and teachers to share in that experience.
There is a power in being able to pause and take a deep breath in and a long breath out. As I teach kids and train teachers around the country I am amazed by how this simple tool of slowing things down through breath and movement can be so essential to how we experience a moment, a day, and our lives. This book is my way of bringing that practice to life.
As a parent, part of the purpose of this book was also to create more ritual around bedtime. My daughter has always needed a longer lead-in to sleep. With this simple flow, we had a way to relax her mentally and physically and really ‘let go’ of the day.
We all, adults and kids alike, need opportunities for true rest, true renewal and a way to settle without there being anything else to ‘do’. This book is meant to support all of that. Enjoy!"
