New Children's Book Prepares Kids for Bedtime Through Yoga Poses

I've been practicing yoga and Tai Chi for years after having a panic attack. They're great ways to soothe both the mind and body. When this press release hit my email box, I was thrilled to see someone's bringing it down to a level that children will grasp. Incorporating yoga poses into a child's night time routine is something I think would help any child fall asleep faster and in a calmer frame of mind.


Kids Yoga: Bedtime Rhymes by Jeff Maier is a child's introduction to the practice of yoga 

IRVINE, Calif. (MMD Newswire) January 27, 2010 -- Kids Yoga: Bedtime Rhymes, a new book by longtime yogi Jeff Maier, is an illustrated story with instructive rhymes for yoga poses with the intent to ease children to sleep.

With colorful illustrations and easy-to-remember rhymes, Maier intends for his book to provide a positive, feel-good experience for a child's introduction to yoga. At the same time, Maier believes that yoga's peaceful words will calm children down at bedtime. While taking children through a sequence of poses to prepare them for bedtime, Maier mixes in the yoga philosophy of simple meditations. He ends the story with "keep breathing long and deep. Soon you will enjoy a well deserved sleep."

The inspiration for the book came to Maier when he could not find a suitable illustrated children's book on yoga for his son. Yoga poses like "cat cow," "down dog," "Superman" and "frog" are straightforward and uncomplicated. Maier wishes to share with readers the positive benefits he and his son have found in yoga. "Yoga leaves us blessed with grace and joy," he says.

Not just for parents who would like to get their children interested in yoga, Kids Yoga is intended to instill healthy and peaceful values in young children. Maier aims for his book to be as entertaining as it is instructive.
Kids Yoga: Bedtime Rhyme is available for sale online at and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.
