{Review & Giveaway} Good Night Yoga: a pose-by-pose bedtime story by Mariam Gates

Good Night Yogs book giveaway . Check out this cool new #KidsYoga book: “Good Night Yoga: A Pose-by-Pose Bedtime Story” by Mariam Gates and Sara Jane Hinder! What I love about this book:

  • Short rhyming text in a large easy to read font on each page. Additional smaller text provides kid-friendly instructions for the yoga pose and breathing on each 2-page spread.
  • Gorgeous vivid illustrations that are a feast for the eyes. Even the end sheets are illustrated… such a nice touch!
  • Well designed book with sturdy binding & luxurious thick paper pages that will stand up well to repeated use.
  • The book presents the 11 poses in a nice yoga flow and includes a 2-page spread of the entire yoga flow at the end of the book.
  • Includes a “Cloud Journey” guided relaxation visualization at the end of the book.
  • Many of the patients that I see a Speech-Language Pathologist have Autism, ADHD, anxiety & other diagnoses that interfere with restful sleep. Good Night Yoga will definitely be added to my list of recommended books for families looking for relaxation materials for their child.

. Product Details:  Kids love yoga—and it’s great for them, so much so that the President’s Council has added the practice to the fitness activities in the annual President’s Challenge. For parents and caregivers looking for a fun and effective new routine for bedtime, innovative educator Mariam Gates presents Good Night Yoga, a playful yet wholly practical book for preparing for sleep. This beautifully illustrated, full-color book tells the story of the natural world as it closes down for the night, while teaching children a simple flow of yoga postures inspired by their favorite characters from nature. Moving from “Sun Breath” to “Cloud Gathering” to “Ladybug & Butterfly” and more, readers learn techniques for self soothing, relaxing the body and mind, focusing attention, and other skills that will support restful sleep and improve overall confidence and well-being. This bedtime story is so much more than a story. It’s a practice for kids and parents to end the day in a calming, mindful way. Turn the page and stretch like a tree, settle softly like a ladybug, float like a cloud, and you’ll be dreaming soon.

{Giveaway} Calming Young Minds CD

Calming Young Minds CD giveaway

.

 

Product Details: A unique compilation of relaxation, meditation, guided imagery, blissful music, creativity, and yoga for children.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, day care provider, child life specialist, yoga instructor, or psychotherapist, we have made it is easy to use these CDs. Listeners are guided step by step through each section, although it is recommended that you listen to these CDs in entirety before using with the children so you can familiarize yourself with the content, directives and the exercises. Some tracks are active, some are relaxing, some yoga exercises conclude with an artistic directive. The background music and vocals compliment the yoga sets, but you might have some additional background music available while the children are being creative. It is important that you have art supplies available. Markers and large paper (18 X 24) are sufficient but feel free to add oil pastels, scented markers or crayons. You might also have paper towels handy for clean up. Make sure there is sufficient space for the children to move around…… you might even have cushions or pillows for the children to sit on. And lastly, enjoy the playful nature of the CDs. Although it is geared for children and teens, adults may enjoy it just as much! ENJOY!

.

Calming Minds CD tracks

 

Here’s what I love about the CD set:

  • relaxing background sounds & music.
  • lovely narration of kids yoga adventures. The narration is pretty detailed so these would be best used with kids elementary school age and up.
  • great combination of kids yoga, relaxation, imagination, guided imagery, creativity & art.
  • includes great positive messages of courage & mindfulness.

Here’s what I LOVE about this CD:

  • lovely calming vocals & music
  • the lyrics of each song convey a positive message
  • unique folksy/jazzy/blues feel
  • I love using very unique Kindie music in my work as a speech-language pathologist & kids yoga teacher. I have had many patients respond to the unique qualities of this type of music when they haven’t to any other. I’m thrilled to have this album added to my ever growing collection of Kindie faves. In case you are new to the term “Kindie”, it’s kids music made by independent artists. It’s totally unlike the mass marketed stuff you find in the kids CD section at large retailers 🙂

Review & Giveaway: 2 Guided Relaxation CDs by Checka Antifonario & Shakta Khalsa

Guided Relaxation CDs Checka and Shakta Giveaway

Product Description:  Rainbow Walk (Fun, Peaceful Meditations and Relaxations for Children Ages 3-8) & You Are Made of Energy (Guided Meditations and Relaxations for Children Ages 9-14) are two new downloadable albums of guided meditations and relaxations backed by soothing and uplifting music to help children stay connected to who they truly are. Checka Antifonario & Shakta Khalsa collaborated on this project with the intention that these audio albums would be a lovely balance between communicating in a way that honors children’s depth and wisdom and giving them tools that are fun and totally relevant to their lives and interests.

 

bar - green

Here’s what I LOVE about these guided relaxations:

  • Lovely calming voices….. I’ve heard LOTS of guided relaxation CD’s and the voice quality is very important for creating a calming atmosphere.
  • Awesome background instrumental music….. again very important for creating the calming atmosphere.
  • Good length for the targeted ages. You can see the length of individual tracks on the picture of the two album covers above. Very young children or those with short attention spans may do best starting with the shortest relaxations or you could just use a portion of a relaxation and build from there.
  • Each guided relaxation is full of positive imagery and positive messages.
  • I love that the Rainbow Walk album includes a Fruit Mindfulness activity! I love doing this with the patients I see in OMazing Kids Yoga at the JD McCarty Center. Please remember that it’s important to know about any food allergies or dietary restrictions before using food in a classroom or group setting. See this post on how I incorporate this type of activity.
  • There are no religious connotations which make these downloads appropriate in a wide variety of settings (I have to be particularly sensitive to this based on the setting I work in).
  • I love that they have made the guided relaxations available as individual mp3’s! This makes it easy for folks to buy one and try it with their own child or own setting before investing in a whole album. I also love that they made them available for download on a variety of platforms…. in particular iTunes since that makes it easy to directly download to an iPhone, iPod or iPad without having to be synced with a computer.

These guided relaxations would be fabulous for parents to use as part of a relaxation program for a child with anxiety, autism or other special needs, for teachers to use as a relaxation activity to center and calm their classroom & for kids yoga teachers to use as part of Savasana at the end of a class. And these guided relaxations are really “universal” in their use. There is nothing “kiddie” about them and would also be fabulous for adults to use as part of a relaxation break. I have them all loaded on my iPhone ready for just that purpose 🙂

Mindfulness in Your Classroom: 4 Ways to FLOW ~ {Guest Post from GoNoodle}

 Mindfulness in your Classroom - GoNoodle

Mindfulness in Your Classroom: 4 Ways to FLOW

By Wynne Kinder BA Ed. (of Kinder Associates LLC and Wellness Works in Schools)

 

Meet guest poster Wynne Kinder— former classroom teacher (16 years), wellness educator, curriculum author, and teacher trainer—who has been using principles of mindfulness, social skills, and emotional balance in classrooms for 10+ years. Most recently, Wynne collaborated with GoNoodle to create Flow, the first-of-its-kind mindfulness brain break for classrooms.

 

Mindfulness Came into My Classroom

 

Jose was not having it.  He declared, with actions and words, that he was not going along with my hopes of quiet, calm or “just breathing” in our 5th grade classroom.

I had envisioned that my newly-discovered personal practice of mindfulness would naturally assimilate into this 28-student, urban, public school classroom.  Jose and friends responded, “You are just trying to calm us to death,” and “We’re not like that, Miss. We’re not like you.”  So, I stuck to the curriculum in the classroom.

That is until a mindfulness program, Wellness Works in Schools, came to our school to lead classroom sessions. I was hopeful, but still skeptical;  My wiggly nay-sayers?  My chatty, non-sitters? My separated from the group-ers? My Jose is going to try something new, quiet, calm? I think not.

I should have given him (actually, all of them) more credit.

 

Jose became the star student.  He reminded me when the mindfulness teachers were coming.  He helped set up our classroom. He even led a mindfulness activity in one of our final sessions, and I resisted the urge to tell him, “I told you so.”

Three years later, I retired from classroom teaching to help spread classroom mindfulness concepts around the district and the county through Wellness Works in Schools. Today, teachers like me who weren’t sure how, when or why to engage their students in mindfulness don’t have to wait for a mindfulness expert to save the day.

 

Mindfulness Goes Everywhere

 Mindfulness in your Classroom - GoNoodle 2

 

Last week, I received an emailed plea from a teacher-friend two hours away.  “How do I teach what you teach?  I need to try.  My kids are talkers.  They seriously won’t stop.  Help!”

 

I sent her straight to GoNoodle, an online suite of resources to engage students and teachers with physical activity breaks or “brain breaks,” that incorporate mindfulness practices.  I specifically recommended Flow, the newest online, centering, mindfulness brain break I created with GoNoodle.  I heard from her a day later.  “Success! Made me cry.”

Brain breaks are three to five-minute experiences that can change the tone of a classroom from high energy chaos to channeled productivity or even to focused, balanced readiness.

 

Taking my work from one-on-one classroom wellness consulting to collaboration with GoNoodle opens up the possibilities for classroom mindfulness and reaching classrooms everywhere. Teachers who never imagined practicing mindfulness are now discovering the benefits, and those who wanted to practice classroom mindfulness, but weren’t sure how, now have an accessible starting point.

 

4 Ways to Flow

Mindfulness in your Classroom - GoNoodle 3

Flow is designed as a “jumping off” point for mindfulness practice. While Flow does not represent the entirety of mindfulness practice, it serves as a way to guide students in short, repeatable mindfulness exercises without need for prior experience.

 

1. Morning Meeting offers an opportunity to set the tone for your day. Take note of the vocabulary used in the exercises and remind students how they can “bring down their balloon” when feeling out of control, or “chin up” when feeling discouraged or frustrated.

 

2. Class Meetings are an interjection of a needed shift for you and your students. Use Flow during such times: before a test, after a conflict, or as a break from a challenging or frustrating lesson (long division, anyone?).

 

3. Transitions are one of the most uncertain parts of classroom management, as they afford the most opportunity to “lose” the class. Make Flow a natural 3-minute transition aid.  Use Flow as a chance for students to be more present and to give yourself the opportunity to smoothly shift focus and manage energy.

 

4. Anytime.  Really, any time you or your students want to Flow! Once mindfulness becomes a regular part of your classroom routine, students will ask for a brain break when they need it. Follow their intuition (and your own) to offer Flow as a strategy to rearrange energy and attitudes.

 

To use Flow with your kids or students, create a free account at GoNoodle.com. GoNoodle also includes 3-5 minute brain breaks of varying energy levels from calming to high energy.

Review & Giveaway: Move With Me Adventure Skills Cards

Move with me adventure skills cards giveaway

One of the things I love most about the Move with Me™ Action Adventures DVD’s is the “Adventure Skills” they include in each story. As I watched each DVD, I remember thinking that having a card for each skill would be especially helpful for the kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, anxiety & other special needs that I work with as a Speech-Language Pathologist and even had the idea of taking “screenshots” off the DVD’s to make my own cards. Of course I never had the time to do that with my busy schedule. So imagine my pure delight when I saw that the company had come out with a flash card set!

Product Description: It is a 13 Flash Card Set that includes all the “Adventure Skills” (health lessons and self-regulation techniques) from the Scooter & Me video series

  • 5.5” x 8.5” cards with colorful illustrations on the front and directions on the back.
  • Easy-to-use visual aid to teach/reinforce the use of Adventure Skills to improve well-being, focus, learning, impulse control and emotional resilience and intelligence.
  • Effective teacher tool for behavior management.
  • Engaging activities that support social-emotional learning.
  • Adventure Skills are short exercises that help children relax and connect with inner strengths when frustrated, confused, angry, sad or scared. Each technique is simple to do, can decrease stress, contribute to increased focus, coordination and self-control and improve social skills and emotional intelligence. All movement and self-care techniques are inspired by yoga, creative movement, PE standards, mind-body research and Brain Gym.

I love that each card includes information about why, when & how to use the Adventure Skill. Eleven of the cards also include a short rhyming “chant”.

Here’s a “sneek peek” at the front & back of one of the cards:

Kids Affirmation Cards & Custom Plush Creations from BSL Creations * Cuddle Wumkins & Daily Whisper Products

Check out these fun custom creations & kids affirmation cards from BSL Creations * Cuddle Wumkins & Daily Whisper Products!

I was looking for some ideas for kids affirmations a few weeks ago and ran across this old blog post from 2009: http://www.thesucculentwife.com/daily-whisper-nurturing-words-for-kids/.

After a little digging I found the company on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/BSLCreations. Love the power of social media…. after a few FB comments & e-mails my custom order was on its way 🙂 Love that I could pay via Paypal online & that the order arrived quickly.

Here are pics of my order:

I love the cute illustrations on both sides of the cards & that the affirmations are relevant/meaningful for kids.

It is especially nice to see affirmation cards that are not “goofy” (you know the kind that imply that you always win, everyone will always like you, the sun is always shining, etc….. It’s not fair or healthy to give kids the impression that nothing bad will ever happen or that the only feeling that is okay is “happy”).

The Daily Whisper cards include affirmations about choices kids have control over (ex: I am always nice to my friends. I am kind to myself. I choose kind words when I speak. I am kind to everyone in my family. I am kind to all living creatures. I am considerate of other people feelings. I help my parents with work around the house., etc….), affirmations relating to difficult situations kids commonly face (ex: I don’t let bullies bother me, if they do I tell an adult I can trust. I know that some kids won’t like me and that’s okay. It is okay to fail sometimes, that just means I need to learn more and try again. I can be angry without hurting people of things. , etc….), affirmations that inspire kids to work hard & have confidence (ex: I try my best and don’t give up. I am proud of who I am and all that I have learned. I stay focused on my projects. I enjoy learning new things. I can be great when I put my mind to it. I am confident in myself. I am patient with myself as I learn new things. etc….) and affirmations that inspire feelings of love (ex: I am loved and very loveable. I am very important to my family. I am happy to be me., etc….).

I used the plush star & cards during relaxation in OMazing Kids yoga with our inpatients at the JD McCarty Center for Children with Developmental Disabilities last week (where I work full-time as a Speech-Language Pathologist). I picked out cards that related to the story and activities we did in yoga that day. It’s important for affirmations to make sense & are more meaningful when used in context. The kids enjoyed practicing deep breathing with the star on their belly. Then each child took a card out of the pocket and read it aloud or I read it to them and they imitated saying it. Affirmations can be especially powerful for kids with special needs since they can often feel that something is wrong or needs to be “fixed” in them.

Available for purchase: http://www.etsy.com/listing/105242689/star-pillow-and-daily-whisper-cards-for

Affirmation Cards also available separately at: http://www.etsy.com/listing/97429411/inspirational-cards-for-kids

Here are a few pics of things she created for other kids yoga folks:

I like how large the eyes & rosy cheeks are on this star!

And love the idea of using a patterned fabric on the back! You can get them with or without a pocket, with or without a name, bundled with the affirmation cards or without the cards….. Lots of custom options…. you can e-mail Barbara to find out all the specifics: Barbara@bslcreations.com.

See lots of pics of her custom creations on her blog at: http://dailywhisperblog.blogspot.com/http://dailywhisperblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/yoga-for-kids.html

Her Etsy Shops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/DailyWhisper & http://www.etsy.com/shop/CuddleWumkins. Barbara is working on a website that will put everything together on one site….. so stay tuned on her blog & FB page for updates on that.

Disclaimer: I purchased the affirmation cards at full price. I received a small discount on the custom plush star.  Opinions expressed are my own.
