yoga a powerful, accessible tool for every child.

Bear emerges from a long hibernation in a forest and seeks a way to energize, think clearly, stay calm, be positive, and finally relax before bedtime.
Crab is feeling a little cold, a little stiff, and not very sociable – some might say crabby. As he scuttles along the beach, he meets different seashore animals who help him feel more confident, optimistic, and happy.
Both Bear and Crab discover how to achieve these goals through the power of yoga -- and each pose they learn is accompanied by specific instructions that encourage young readers to follow along!
