What is Breathe. Read. Yoga? 

  • An online children's yoga program designed to bring books and characters to life while embodying the story through various yoga postures, taking students on an immersive journey where their creativity and imagination can shine!

  • Each virtual class incorporates breathing practices, mindfulness, storytelling, and yoga. This approach helps make yoga accessible to all children, while also contributing to their physical, mental, and social-emotional development.

  • An excellent resource for childcare centres, elementary schools, day camps or after-school programs.

How does it work? 

  • Each class includes three practices: breathing exercises, reading, and yoga.

  • Videos begin with approximately 3-5 minutes of breathing exercises, followed by the reading of a book (each book includes a theme or life lesson to foster social emotional development). The book is then re-told by weaving yoga postures into the narrative.

  • The average class length is 20 minutes; however, duration can be modified by choosing one of the three practices in isolation, or completing all three components of the class.

  • Each virtual class can be conducted in a regular classroom, school library, gymnasium or cafeteria - all you need is a comfortable space to move your body.

  • Teachers simply log-in, select the book/class they want and stream it from the Grow A Lotus website (high-speed internet required).
