Children are big souls in little bodies.  Yoga helps children develop coordination, focus their creative mind through the poses, meditation and relaxation.  Yoga is a way of life;  a tool to improve balance, increase physical fitness and create readiness for academic learning.   Children also learn to calm their minds through their breath.

“Mandala" is the Sanskrit word for “circle”. A Mandala is a symbol of unity and wholeness.  The circle has been of major importance in every culture from the beginning of time.  The mandala is the highest form of the unifying circle, and it is used in meditation around the world.

These are fun and creative activity for children of all ages. These mandalas can be made with items found in your home, craft drawer, chalk, markers or cut out paper. Explain to your children that a Mandala is round to signify unity and created in a repetitive design within a circle.  You can take a picture of mandalas that are created outside and print them  for the children to look at when they are meditating or just to enjoy as art in your house. They are great to put on the wall by the bed for children to look at as they are falling asleep.  You can find printed mandalas to color online.

 Start the story with "I wish the wind would...".

"I wish the wind would carry me to a jungle".

Prompt your child to create a story. If they can write, have them write it themselves. They can draw, paint or make a collage for each page. Encourage them to include a different animal for each page, make a cover page and add a title.  You can punch three holes in each page and tie them together with string.  Yippee,   It's time to celebrate: Your child has just completed their own yoga story book!
