The ABCs of Yoga For Kids Inspires, Grounds and Uplifts

By |April 19, 2010 |1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Books, Product Reviews, Well-being|

This set of yoga inspirations for young children is adorable, inspirational, visually uplifting and cheerful.  Teresa Anne Power and Kathleen Rietz bring life to yoga for children 3-8 with their new book, coloring book and poster.  The ABCs of YOGA for KiDS will put a smile on your face and your child’s, and there is no yoga experience required. I am a yoga instructor and love sharing this practice with my 3 year old.  However, I truly have never had so much fun “playing yoga” with her as I have allowing this book to lead our way.  I believe she feels the same.  We giggles, sing and move, and of course breathe, our way through the book. My daughter practically skips across the floor singing “It’s yoga time, time to do our yoga!”   It takes us about 30 minutes just to flow our way from A-G.  There is definitely countless hours of fun to be had with this book.  Some of them are very simple, and a few of them (like flower pose) are challenging for a 3 year old, but I believe that even a child around 8 would have tons of fun joining in.  So, that’s just the book.  The coloring book and poster are enlightening  too!

Mommy Power Has Been Unleashed and SAFbaby Interviewed

By |December 6, 2009 |Announcements, Books, For Mom|

One of my favorite articles here on SAFbaby is one in which we interviewed Kimberely Clayton Blaine, MA, MFT (the “Go-To-Mom”) on the benefits of outdoor play for our children! So, when she asked to interview US for her newest book, the Internet Mommy, we were excited.  What an honor for us to be such an inspiration to this amazing mom, child development expert, author, and executive producer of www.TheGoToMom.TV.   What an honor to be amongst so many incredible women in this book! This book is a colorful bouquet of interviews and short stories, drawn from a diverse group of moms who are spending personal and business time on their computers.  There is delightful humor, potent business sense, and MOMMY POWER alive in every section, making for an uplifting and easy read.  If you are a mommy reading this post now (spending time on the computer), I am SURE you will find yourself laughing aloud and fully inspired to follow your dreams,  while reading this book.
