Updated: Jul 8

Written by Lora Halfhill, Marketing Director and Yoga Teacher

I'm excited to announce that Seasonal Mindfulness: 36 Yoga + Mindfulness Lessons for Happy Children just hit the shelves on July 4th, 2024 – and it's a game-changer!

As the designer of the book, this project has been a labor of love for a couple of years now. A special shout-out to certified Challenge to Change Kids Yoga + Mindfulness Instructor, Melissa Hyde, for writing all the lessons featured in the book.

I am proud to be a former Kids Yoga Instructor at our Dubuque studio. Reflecting on my teaching journey, I must say, I would have loved to have this book back when I was instructing. It would have been an invaluable resource, enriching my classes and saving me a ton of time!

In this post, I'll explain how the book is designed, and how it has everything you'll need to guide fun and engaging kids yoga and mindfulness lessons to empower kids toward a happy and healthy lifestyle!
