Yummy Young Yoga with a Side of Green Eggs and Ham

Say! I Love Yoga with Green Eggs & Ham! (a fun kids yoga theme)

Green Eggs & Ham has always been one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and I use it frequently in my work as a speech-language pathologist at the JD McCarty Center. It is great to work on vocabulary and prepositions & has a good repeated line that is perfect to record into a Big Mack or other single message voice output communication aide.

This year I found a new way to use this beloved classic….. it is perfect for kids yoga! The kids LOVED it during our OMazing Kids Yoga group on Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Here are the poses & activities that we did:

The message of the book is great too… try something new and you may like it!

I do so like Green Eggs & Ham! Thank you! Thank You! Sam-the yogini-I-Am 🙂

Handouts & Powerpoint Show from my presentation on “Yoga for Radiant Kids” at the Oklahoma Childcare Association Conference

I had an OMazing time sharing my love for kids yoga with a great group of childcare providers at the annual Oklahoma Childcare Association Conference today. It was one of the most highly requested sessions with about 55 people in attendance.

Shared lots of great ideas. Also a few fun Youtube clips from from Barbara Gini from BodyLogique /S.M.Art Kids Yoga, Donna Freeman from Yoga In My School, Lani Rosen-Gallagher from Full of Joy Yoga and The Sun Dance Kids Yoga/Music Video by Bari Koral Family Rock Band. It was like having you guys there with us 🙂

Here is a flier with additional information about this OMazing CD: Love Me For Who I Am – Songs Celebrating Children Of All Abilities (PDF).  The CD itself is spectacular and I was even more touched when I found out that 5% of proceeds are being donated to Autism Speaks and additional proceeds will benefit the Celebrate the Children School in New Jersey (http://ctcschool.org/ & on FB at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Celebrate-The-Children-School/199593683407181?ref=ts&sk=wall)

“Love Me For Who I Am – Songs Celebrating Children Of All Abilities” – new CD by Brady Rymer

I absolutely love the new Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could CD “Love Me For Who I Am”! Will be perfect to use in my kids yoga groups. We incorporate affirmation/self esteem into every group. Here’s the video of the title track “Love Me For Who I Am”. OMazing work by Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I53UiPI39Zc. Anyone who loves kids needs to check out his album! Pure awesomeness!

Laurie Berkner (http://www.facebook.com/LaurieBerknerBand) collaborated with Brady on the song “Soft Things” on this album and very eloquently described the album in her FB post “This beautiful album honors kids of all abilities, with themes that resonate particularly well for kids on the autism spectrum.”.
