Enjoy & Comment!

From Stories That Come Alive Through Yoga: Chapter 1:
We begin and end all of our yoga practices with the word Namaste. Broadly translated, it means: the heart in me honors the heart in you. What better way to begin this book!

If I had to convey the essence of this work in a few words, they would be: stories to nurture the mind, the body, and the spirit. It provides a way to express to children and their parents, grandparents, teachers, and fitness instructors (or anyone, for that matter, who interacts with children between the ages of four and eleven years old) how to nurture the mind, body, and spirit through yoga. As a tool, it can help adults connect to children with whom they interact. It can also serve as a great resource for kids and adults by assisting them with staying healthy while having FUN!

Through the practice of yoga, this book can help adults similar to myself—who often become bogged down with the mundane in their everyday existence—enter a child’s world for the purpose of adult and child experiencing a happier, healthier, and more balanced life. The “gift” shared is not only one that is fun and entertaining, but one that is certain to become a memory you and
your child will cherish for a long, long time. Namaste!

From The Day Mother Nature Decided To Paint Her House: Chapter 4
……Not wanting to waste any time, Father Time began opening the doors of the rooms to be painted. Over and over, they heard a loud CRASH!  Not realizing that Mother Nature had placed a paint can behind each door, Father Time had knocked over every can of paint in the house! Paint spilled out everywhere! Trickling down through the floorboards and over the sky, gobs of paint landed on every treetop on Earth.

Mother Nature and Father Time looked down at Earth, dumbfounded! What had they done!  They were afraid to keep looking. But their fear soon turned to excitement…Autumn was created.

From Winston The Whale And The Blanket Of Darkness: Chapter 1:
Winston the whale marveled at the beauty of the sinking sun as it blanketed his ocean home with its shimmering rays. No matter how many times he saw the sun set on his home he never tired of its sight. The day was ending and he popped his head above water one last time, completing an enjoyable round of spyhopping for his captive audience aboard the whale watching cruiser. He joined the other humpback whales that had gathered, and together they watched as the cruiser left their home, grower smaller and smaller as it headed back to port.
