Packed with Great Resources!

"I was fortunate to be able to attend the School Yoga Lesson Planning Workshop live on October 9, 2021! This was an amazing three-hour workshop packed with great resources! I literally keep the printed folder of workshop materials along with Giselle’s book Classroom Yoga In 10 Minutes A Day in my school/kids yoga bag at all times! My school yoga program has been ever evolving since this school year started, but it always includes materials from the Summer Boot Camp and/or the lesson planning workshop. I have used all parts of the workshop, but my favorites have been the meditations from section #7."

Giselle Shardlow

Hello, my name is Giselle. I hold a Masters of International Education with almost a decade experience teaching grades K-5 in Guatemala, Australia, Canada and United States. I am also a certified yoga instructor and have led yoga classes here and there to young children since 2005, the year I started writing these stories. When I was asked to teach my first kids yoga class, I dove into research and was surprised at how few resources there were for a kids yoga instructor. So, I wrote my own. I have always been passionate about working with children and throughout my world travels, I recognized a great need to address child illiteracy, obesity and stress. My goal is to write stories that make reading fun – combined with movement, the stories thoroughly engage children as they laugh, express themselves, and stretch their imagination. I hope that my books, card decks, teaching resources, and other creative resources for kids are easy ways to introduce children everywhere to how fun reading and good health can be! My Mission for Kids Yoga Stories is to bring education, health and happiness to young children everywhere.

Kind words from the community

"I loved it and so did my staff! I sent out the challenge videos daily and had really good feedback. Some teachers said they actually slept better at night. Some of my teachers said their students enjoyed doing it too. I loved how you started it by having me monitor my own breathing before I did the challenge. I noted that I breathe shallow and stop breathing several times a day. (I thought it was an error in my Apple Watch but I do need to breathe.)Thank you for bringing this activity to my attention and my staff and students!" - Sharon S

"Thank you for your personal stories (experiences), which I have sat with. The amazing part of working in education is sitting with educators(parents/students...) in the  reminder of supporting "being Present/Check-In/Self-Awareness in the physical body: to uphold that skill is the Gift. That is the gift to my job." - Jennifer R.

“Love this! I am an elementary PE teacher and use mindful breathing in place of discipline and to get the attention of my noisy classroom." - Tammie F.

“Thank you so much Giselle. I love your energy. " - Roj Z.

“Thanks Giselle. Mindful breathing is a wonderful way to connect with my true essence. I have mini mountains of piles in my office that I must release and find new homes for- the recycling pile, art supplies to donate, books etc.  I realized that as the breath leaves me I feel more brave to dive into this project - one breath at a time. Thanks for reminding me." - Marla F.

"Now I have to bring it into my daily life more often, maybe I will try every hour and see how it goes. I have also done this breathing with 6 in and hold 6 and then out 6. Thanks again!!! - Laurie O.

"I usually do 4 counts so this was a little bit of a mental change issue for me, but it felts good." - Katie M.

"Thank you Giselle, new for me to do a 6 count as I usually do a 4 count. It is great!" - Gill G.

"I love it, and I needed the reminder to bring back deep breathing into my day. I usually breathe out longer than breathing in but this felt great today. Thank you!" - Nina K.

"Hey l love your yoga stories!! You guys are mind-blowing!!! I use for my children...keep posting!!! Thank u so much!! " - PFA Club "Thank you for sharing I will be heading out to buy this book 🙏🧡 " - Kelly B.

"Thank you , this is exactly what I need!! I am a shallow breather and also hold my breathe often. I look forward to following your videos." - Laurie O. "Loved the breathe better challenge. I really need to remember to breathe these days." - Sharon P.

"Thank you for the information! Enjoyed the format for this information. I enjoy receiving all the information in your emails, however for this type of information I believe it was probably more effective as a video series. Keep up the great work! I have incorporated more yoga into my personal and professional life this year than ever before." - Jill S.

"I really loved the mini series, thank you for sharing it.: - Gillian G.
