Bedtime can be a four letter word in a lot of houses. Local author Laurie Jordan is here to help with her new book, Yawning Yoga. In it, she guides young children (with your help) in a sequence of relaxing yoga poses that help calm little minds and bodies to ensure a great night’s sleep. Laurie is the director of Kids Programming at Kaia Yoga in Greenwich and Westport and developed Yawning Yoga as an elementary school social worker trying to help overstressed and overstimulated children.
Each pose is beautifully illustrated with fun, Dr. Seuss-like prose explaining the technique. This is sure to become a bedtime favorite for both you and your child. To order visit yawningyoga.com.
