Everything you need to combine the ancient art of oral storytelling with the
the healing practice of yoga to engage kids in body-centered life education, wellness & FUN!
Parents, teachers, mentors, and church educators world-wide
love using Story and Stretch to help children connect
with their inner world of creativity, while acquiring
listening & literary skills, body-awareness and character development.
For those in Christian settings, Story and Stretch provides a framework in which to explore scriptural truths through body movement -
offering children of all ages the opportunity to experience their bodies
as sacred places to dialogue with God.
Story & Stretch is our resource to gather the children and tell the Bible lesson each day of VBS. It is also our resource for Sunday morning faith formation and intergenerational gatherings!
-Charlotte Allbright, Director of Christian Formation and Education
Our children today are bombarded with noise and stimulation. Story and Stretch equips them with strategies to find an inner quiet, to combat the chaos of the world, and to be embraced by the truth of God’s love for them.
- Elizabeth Snelbaker, Director of Christian Education
Story and Stretch is a very modern approach to teaching classic Bible stories incorporating movement and mindfulness to children. Myself and the participating children at the church enjoyed it immensely.
