Every child deserves to be taught the tools necessary to grow into a healthy and peaceful individual. Now, you can effectively teach those tools to one or 1,000 children using Story and Stretch: Narrative Yoga for Kids, a body-centered life education and yoga play therapy program. The Story and Stretch method, clearly outlined in this book, combines the ancient art of oral storytelling and the healing practice of yoga to help kids connect with their inner world of creativity while acquiring listening and literary skills, body awareness and character development. Written by mom, certified yoga instructor, and former elementary teacher, Michel Le Gribble-Dates, this book is designed for anyone who works with children ages 3 and up. It includes twelve stories with instruction on how to lead children through recreating the stories using yoga poses, as well as breathing, meditation, and mindfulness exercises, yoga games, and extension activities.
