Description: Yoga Games for Children: Fun and Fitness with Postures, Movements, and Breath is a resource for librarians, parents, and educators that provides 16 complete lessons for children about different yoga concepts. The games are broken into different focus areas such as breathing exercises, relaxation, and meditation. Within these areas are lessons with different themes, from spring, to snow, to animals, to birthday parties. Individual lessons are also coded for the appropriate age group.

Use:  Children’s librarians and library staff can use Yoga Games as a resource as they plan storytimes and other programs. Themed lessons can be incorporated into a variety of storytimes for different ages, and the themes allow for them to be used in conjunction with other books and activities on the same theme, for the creation of a fully active storytime or children’s program.
