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 Community

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your wonderful support and materials!  So helpful, particularly in this very challenging time! I want to particularly thank you for the affirmation cards, and easy meditation cards. I have started using them, and this is just what I needed! Makes it so accessible and doable!

I have struggled to keep to a regular meditation practice, and now having a go-to card to guide me, I've already seen a difference and I stick to it! The affirmations are great! I turn to a different one each day, and I keep it in a very prominent place in my office/yoga teaching (zoom) and practicing space, where I will see it and return to it often.  I feel you do this from your heart, and I really appreciate it!" 

- Linda

"Thanks for providing other ways to share your resources. I am, like others I’m sure, filled with lots of BIG feelings/emotions these days. Your resources are helping me as much as, possibly more so, than the second graders in my class."
