Can you roar like a lion? Flutter like a butterfly? Stand strong and tall like a mountain? Then you can do yoga!
This exuberant rhyming board book celebrates the simple joy of yoga and the natural shapes that even the littlest yogis and yoginis can make with their bodies. Poses such as happy baby, child's pose and downward dog are ones you will see children spontaneously explore from a very young age. Babies and toddlers intuitively know the movements that restore their bodies and minds. Yoga Baby celebrates this mindful playfulness with a diverse selection of babies doing what babies love to do: feeling good and having fun!

“Young readers will delight in seeing images of real baby faces and bodies, and adults will enjoy watching their children mimic the movements they see, especially if they choose to move along too! Adorable.”
“A delightful experience and perhaps even set the stage for our little ones to practice mindfulness and self-care throughout life. Highly Recommended.”
