The Book

Mula is a very tired  tiger.  She loves her snooze time.  One day she is awakened by a pesky fly which interrupts her dream where she was tumbling, hopping and even standing on her head.  She is angry that her dream is disturbed and swats the fly away.  The fly is determined to stay around and she tells Mula that all those things she was attempting  to do in her sleep she could achieve in real life. Mula dismisses that idea as ludicrous. But the pesky fly doesn't give up and finally teaches Mula that she CAN do all those things if she focuses on her breathing and follows through with the actions.  

Skeptical, Mula takes the fly's advice and guess what?  She is astounded to discover that she can indeed perform all those amazing moves that beforehand were only in her dreams. What she is doing is called... yoga!  Putting yoga into practice in her life she now has more energy, better health and more happiness.  She is so thrilled that she wants the fly, who now is her friend,  to teach everyone she knows the same lessons,  to which the fly agrees. 

This book is a perfect introduction to teach yoga to little ones.  The illustrations are fantastic. They are  full of humour, activity and expression.  Kids will adore them and probably want to try the suggested positions themselves.   The book is inspirational for both young ( and old ).   I highly recommend it.
