All this talk of playgroup and baby groups has reminded me we’ve been enjoying the new Fearne Cotton children’s book, Yoga Babies…
Disclaimer, we’ve ALL been unashamed Fearne Cotton fangirls in this house since this so her name initially sparked everyone’s interest, but we loved it. Yoga Babies is Fearne’s new children book, a simple rhyming story about a series of young children trying out various yoga poses, with the poses demonstrated in the pictures.
I wouldn’t have said that we have a particularly zen household, especially not first thing in the morning or during the school run, and most times I’ve tried normal-no-kids-yoga I’ve never been able to stop my mind from thinking about a million other things at one. But reading the story really did encourage us to try it out, and while none of us have the peaceful, still vibe or perfect balance yet it was a lot of fun, and it’s a simple way to encourage children to try something relaxing and new.
If you want more yoga, both of my also love Cosmic Kids over on YouTube – if you’ve not seen it, the channel is a collection of easy, active yoga routines for children, set to children’s stories including Frozen, Harry Potter and Star Wars. It’s guilt-free healthy screen-time, they love it, it’s not egg-opening videos – what’s not to love?
Yoga Babies by Fearne Cotton is ava, ilable in most book shops and costs around £4.99. If you’re looking for more children’s book recommendations, make sure you watch our video here
