Little Yogis, Big Feelings
by Janessa Gazmen

The modern world is full of challenges. But with yoga, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence, kids can access the tools they need to become resilient, happy, and self-aware. Little Yogis, Big Feelings teaches emotional awareness for kids. Through a daily self-awareness check-in and friendly animal costumes, they learn to recognize emotions and how they may change over time. Then, they are offered the tools and strategies needed to help them express and cope with those feelings while relating to others in a healthy way: • Breathing practices • Animal costumes linked to emotions • Yoga exercises • Daily affirmations • A journaling opportunity The integrative approach to the tools and practices in this book gives kids the chance to express emotions in a creative way; practice reading, spelling, vocabulary, writing skills; while building physical activity and fitness into their daily routine.

“A beautiful and insightful book that connects BIG feelings with action. A great tool for children (and grown ups) to build self-awareness and emotional intelligence." —Dr. Rumeet Billan, PhD, CEO and owner, Women of Influence+ and author of Who Do I Want To Become? “Little Yogis Big Feelings asks important questions in a heartfelt and inviting way, while providing playful and actionable strategies to nurture emotional balance and wellness..." —Jill Hewlett, Brain Fitness Expert & Wellness Authority, author of Common Sense...Uncommonly Practised. “...a must-have for mindful parents...Here’s to a future of emotionally intelligent children!” —Paul Galloro, Mindful Movement Educator and Creator of ARISE.
